Woven Photo Viewing App Brings Family and Friends Together With New "Woven for Samsung Smart TV"

Popular Photo Viewing App Now Lets Consumers Relive Memories on the Largest and Most Social Screen in the Home

BOSTON, MA--(Nov 28, 2012) - Woven by litl announced today the launch of "Woven for Samsung Smart TV," an extension of its mobile photo-viewing app that enables picture viewing on the largest and most social screen in the home -- the television. Woven for Samsung Smart TVoffers a new way to share special photos with family and friends, eliminating the need to huddle around small screens or pass a phone or tablet from person to person. The perfect app for the holiday season, Woven's first-of-its-kind social photo viewing experience is available immediately through a free download from Samsung's TV Apps store.


"Everyone enjoys solo photo browsing on their phone or tablet, but viewing and storytelling with loved ones is much more social and engaging on a large screen," said Jack Harvey, litl's EVP of strategy and development. "In collaboration with Samsung, it's exciting to deliver a simple and fun viewing experience on both a consumer's smallest and largest screens."

Social photo viewing with Woven for Samsung Smart TV is easy. After downloading Woven's free mobile app for Android or iOS phones and tablets, users then download the companion Woven for Samsung Smart TV app through their web-connected Samsung television or Blu-ray player. The two apps securely pair with one another, transforming the user's phone or tablet into a remote control that manages photos on the TV screen. The user can now quickly and effortlessly click through entire collections of photos from online sources like Facebook, Picasa, Shutterfly, Flickr, and Instagram.

"We're pleased to offer apps that enrich our consumers' experience with their Samsung Smart TVs and Blu-ray players," said Eric Anderson, Samsung's Vice President of Content and Product Solutions. "Woven's use of consumers' phones and tablets to control the photo viewing experience on their TV will make it an appealing app this holiday season and beyond."

Woven on any device creates a fun and simple way to gather photos from a range of on and offline sources and bring the organized collection to phones and tablets for on-the-go viewing. Now optimized for at-home photo viewing, Woven for Samsung Smart TV joins popular mobile versions of the app already released for Apple's iOS, Google's Android, and Microsoft's Windows Phone operating systems.

Woven for Samsung Smart TV, available at launch in the US and Canada, can be downloaded free of charge from the app store on Samsung's 2011 and 2012 Smart TVs and Blu-Ray players. Woven's mobile app with support for TV viewing is globally available, also for free, for the iPhone,iPod Touch, iPad, NOOK Tablet, NOOK Color, Kindle Fire, and Android-powered phones, tablets, and cameras. Woven for Windows Phone, newly launched, does not yet support TV viewing.
