My favorite apps to run and watch on Apple TV

Apr 16, 2012

I read the article Appolicious wrote for TechCrunch on this subject, and I’d to point out a few of my favorites here.

Showyou: Your Internet TV

This is like Flipboard for video. Helps me find videos shared by my Facebook and Twitter contacts. Nice search function, and showcases apps from publishers.


Squrl -Effortless video

A close second to Showyou, however, it seems videos from social networks aren’t shared as quickly. GREAT faceted search, however.



From the developers of news app SkyGrid, this app previews how the major broadcast and cable networks will likely approach app-based distribution of their news and entertainment content.


Newsy for iPad – News Video

Managed largely by journos from the University of Missouri, Newsy provides great summaries of major news stories, with, conveying multiple vantage points.


Qello Concerts

Huge music fan, and this app will point you to professional produced HD videos and documentaries. Although the premium service for unlimited viewings is $5/month, you can watch a fair amount for free.
