Please give me more information on the Konka app that is currently being pre-loaded onto their TVs. Who http://www.konka.com.hk/ Did they build it in-house? Is there any website or information talking about the solution? If a 3rd party company built it, who is this company?
Hello! Thank you for your question to Wonder requesting more information about the Konka App that is currently being pre-loaded onto their Smart TVs.
The short version is that after searching extensively through corporate websites, industry reports, and review sites, I've determined that the information that you requested is not publicly available. This is mainly because company privacy is a big issue. The recent controversy around Vizio's Inscape data services, may have led Konka and other Smart TV manufacturers to keep important product and app developments details away from open media. However, I was able to learn that the Konka smartphone app (KKMultiScr), developed by Tentinet Technologies, does provide users with a means to communicate with the developers.
While I could not find a direct answer to your question. I was able to gather some information about this topic, which I think will be helpful for your project. Please find below an explanation of the research methodology and a deep dive of my research.
Firstly, I looked through Konka's company website and was not able to find any information regarding the app that was being uploaded onto their Smart TVs. However, I did find information about the KKMultiScr app development on their website. It appears that Konka has not as yet publicly announced or posted any information regarding their Konka TV App. My internet search yielded a link on the Konka website titled 'Smart TV Software'. The link led to the website shafa.com, which appears to be a developer of Smart TV apps. However, it is not clear if this company are related to or have a function similar to that of UpChannel's software. Lastly, a deep internet search, which included user forums and review sites, did not yield any public information regarding Konka's Smart TV App.
KONKA SMARTPHONE APP
Although unable to find information regarding the Konka TV App, I have compiled some useful information about the Konka Smartphone App (KKMultiScr). The overall rating of the app on the Google app store is a 3.6. The main function of the app is to turn your smartphone into a TV remote, and consists of four modules:
- Smart Remote Control Module - simulates the real remote control on your smartphone
- Multimedia Cloud Share Module - allows you to share photos, music, and videos from your phone to your TV screen
- TV Screen Transmission Module - allows you to transfer the image on your TV screen to your phone, and to toggle TV controls
- Game Control Module - allows you to play games on your TV with your phone
KONKA SMARTPHONE APP DEVELOPER INFORMATION
The Konka smartphone app has not been developed in-house, and has instead been developed by Tentinet Technologies, who primarily develops UX software and data management solutions. After looking through all of the apps that Tentinet has developed for Konka, it appears that none of the apps that this company produces have the functionality of UpChannel's software.
To wrap it up, information about the Konka app that is currently being pre-loaded onto their TVs is not publicly available. This has been determined after searching extensively through company websites, industry reports, and finding no information from Konka themselves. The reason for the lack of public information may be in part due to increased concerns about company privacy. However, I learned that Konka does have a smartphone app, designed to turn your smartphone into a TV remote. The app has been developed by a third-party company called Tentinet Technologies, but does not offer functionality similar to that of UpChannel's software.
