Apps for Apple TV May Be Coming Soon
Three apps you can use now on Apple TV
While Apple has not yet officially opened up their Apple TV for Apps and Games, the internet is a buzzing with news of a new software development kit that Apple may be releasing soon. This kit would allow third-party developers to write apps for Apple's $99 TV Media Streamer.
While this is not yet been set in stone, Apple may already have inadvertently leaked this in their Apple TV Movies menu which has had banners promoting holiday apps and games. Hopefully this was not just a gaff and is pointing to a significant changes in Apple's policy to open up their for now closed Apple TV platform.
With the latest Apple TV beta including a Bluetooth pairing menu for connecting wireless keyboards to 2nd and 3rd generation Apple TVs, it may be another sign that they are relenting and will open up the AppleTV to developers the way Roku did. Once they do this new Apps, Games and Channels for Apple TV will start rolling out in mass.
