I'm currently writing this with the WebOS browser and a Logitech K400r wireless keyboard, which can also be used to flick through the WebOS system.
Just treat the browser as you would on a pc, Adobe Flash has been phased out on mobile devices to be replaced by Html 5 which is a better format.Thankyou buddy your reply. it sounds like WebOS is going well. i get my 55uf950v delivererd thursday an just trien find as much info i can. if no flash support what will that mean as am new to all this smart tv WebOS.

i was in the same thought as you 6 weeks ago as to either go for LG or a tv that would be more responsive. so many reviews looked good but the lag Problem kept on being repeated by so many even with webos 2 aswell as other Glitches and also i did read to be fare a few good reviews. my gut feeling was not to go with LG and decided change my mind to go withHow does everyone else find webos 2? reviews seem pretty good and I will be in the market for a new tv soon so was planning on going down the lg route, is the lag generally this bad and is the menu system really that counter intuitive? Everything i have read so far seemed to suggest the opposite so would be really handy to see what everyone riser thinks
For what i can actually see there is nothink to concerning or worried to be about Samsung or "coming soon" apps....... as most of the Apps you mention i already have are BBC iPlayer, itv Player, Amazon, All 4, Netflix and You tube, and even a Skype app . with Also quite a few more other Apps have already got aswell. 5 Demand will i understand be not that far away and considering have only had thisI was worried about the Samsung as understood that they may have rushed out tizen and there were lots of apps missing, are they back now?
Really looking for amazon, netflix, now tv, bbc iplayer, itv 4 and 5 catch ups if possible, you tube as well if I can, don't think lg have them all either but when I started looking around samsung had seemed to have a lot of "coming soon" apps....and as a youview watcher I'm sceptical of the definition of soon
Maybe they read this forum but I've had a few OS updates and they seem to have unified the menu responses so the above no longer holds true....
the menu layout and navigation is plain stupid - probably the worst I have ever come across.
Take the Picture settings. Press the settings cog at the top of the remote. This takes you to a set of icons. You have to navigate all the way down to the bottom grey icon (further multiple button presses) to get into what is the "traditional" menu that should've been the FIRST menu to appear.
Not only that, but some settings are displayed inconsistently, with some options working within the same menu (loading a sub menu on page) to others completely removing the menu screen, going back to the TV picture and showing you a small scrollable check box menu at the top of the screen, to doing the same but this time with the menu at the bottom of the screen. Completely different responses even within the same main menu system.
Genuinely appears to have been coded by a small child...
Now this all seems to be improved by using a Magic Remote. Yes, that's right, idiot LG decided in their stinginess NOT to include a magic remote with every large TV they sell. I'm pretty sure the 4K LGs have them but my 2015 non-4K 49" LED backlit one didn't .Going back to TV Guide, when launched you're at the top of the screen, in a filter button NOT on the TV channel you're currently on....so that's extra presses needed again in order to do what most other TV's do by default.
Once scrolling through the channels, lets say you change your mind and wish to exit back to what you're watching.....oh no, can't do that I'm afraid. No, either you have to spend time navigating back to the channel you're currently on and pressing the yellow key (?eh, where's the consistency there?) OR....
...you press return, but instead of returning you to the channel you were watching, it instead pops up the bottom "dock bar" (or whatever it's called). I didn't ask for the dock bar, I asked to RETURN back to my TV program!!! You then have to scroll to the left and click to go back to what you were watching. Not only that but it doesn't simply remove the guide back to the TV, No, it instead RELOADS the TV to the channel meaning you get a couple of seconds of black screen/no sound before the channel appears.
