Samsung Smart TV

Samsung has recently released its new Smart TV SDK 5.0 Programming Kit which will allow users to control their home appliances, including network savvy lighting or refrigerators from the TV. For the developers, this new TV SDK 5.0 will allow you to easily develop an app with some interesting features like multiscreen and browser-based IDE. The apps will also support the mobile devices. It will allow developers to use HTML 5 standards. The company has already released a beta SDK, but the bi-screen app developers will have to wait until January 6th to get the final version.
