Apple TV Apps
One of my biggest gripes with Apple TV 4 is that you cannot watch a video while browsing your library or simply using any other application.
Apple released a new ad titled “The Future of TV is Apps,” focusing on the apps for its fourth-generation Apple TV.
The folks over at VideoLAN just launched VLC, the world’s most used media player, on the Apple TV. Those of you interested in downloading and using VLC on your Apple TV will have to search for it in the App Store on the Apple TV. If you have already have the iOS app, you should see it automatically in the “Purchased” tab in the Apple TV store.
Viewing 360-degree videos on YouTube is a pretty cool experience, but thanks to platform limitations, iOS users cannot watch any kind of 360-degree videos on their devices. Thanks to a new app called Littlstar though, fourth generation Apple TV users will soon be able view 360-degree videos on their television.
Pandora, one of the most popular streaming music services out there right now, has just launched an app for one of Apple’s newest products.
One thing that new Apple TV owners might have noticed is that there isn’t an Apple Podcasts app available out of the box.
