LG TV is one of the most popular smart TVs on the market right now. However, unlike FireOS or Android TVs, they don’t ship with great app support. You get the LG Content store with a fairly limited number of apps. With that said, these are some of the best must-have apps for LG Smart TV.
LG TV has some of the most amazing screensavers and live wallpapers. The Landscape app in LG’s content store takes it to the next level. Provides 4k video with relaxing ambient background sound. In total, it has 5 different scenes: Chimney, Raining, Waterfall, Snow, and Sunset. In case you have a 4k OLED TV, it is a must.
2. Calm Radio
Similar to Landscape, Calm Radio is another source of calm and relaxing music on your LG Smart TV. It has a large catalog of music for sleep, meditation, relaxation and nature to choose from. Besides, you also get a lot of classic channels like Mozart, Symphonies, Bach, etc.

3. Plex app
Plex is a popular app for streaming content within your local network and one of the best LG Smart TV apps you can get. In case you don’t know, Plex is a media server app. If you have a lot of offline content or DVD at home, you’d better turn a device into a dedicated Plex server. So you can stream all of that content using the Plex app on any device.

4. Duplex IPTV
Duplex IPTV, as its name suggests, is an IPTV service that offers live TV and sports channels. There are a lot of channels and you can take a look at complete list to find your favorites. Duplex IP TV is a paid service that starts at $ 75 / year. You can also get a 7-day free trial to test the service.

5. Spotify Music
Spotify is a must-have app for LG Smart TV. It allows you to stream unlimited music and podcasts for free. Spotify also works fine on all devices on the same Wi-Fi network. You can seamlessly stream music from any device to your TV.

6. YT Kids
If you have children in your house, it is better to have the YT Kids app. The normal YouTube app has some pretty strange ads for kids. Also, autoplay can sometimes play unpleasant video for them. So it would be better to have YT Kids app in which ads and content are selected for 1-10 year old kids.

Remote & Casting App
7. LG TV Plus
LG Smart TV already comes with an excellent Air-Mouse remote control. But, in case you lose it or can’t find the remote, LG has a great Android app called LG TV Plus. It allows you to control your TV via Wi-Fi and act as a digital remote control. In addition, it also allows you to quickly stream your photos, videos and music on the LG TV screen.
8. TV Cast
LG Smart TV supports Miracast instead of Chromecast for some reason. So if you have an iPad or iPhone lying around, it’s quite difficult to cast it on an LG TV. You can often stream within the YouTube iOS app, but when you’re in the Safari browser or other streaming apps, it’s tedious. So to make the process easier, you can use an app called TV Cast. All you have to do is download the app on both LG TV and your iOS device, and you are good to go.
9. Flying fish 2
It’s time for some game apps for your LG Smart TV. Although the LG Content store has very few apps, there are plenty of good casual games to play. I usually play Flying Fish 2. It’s a fun game where you have to keep your fish floating and safe from obstacles.

10. Online words
Unlike Flying Fish 2, Words Online is a multiplayer word building game. You can play with your friend offline using the 2 player offline mode or you can play with other players on the internet.
