Apple TV gets support for apps, new remote control and will revolutionize the world. But is it really?
Apple TV has finally been upgraded with a bit more fun chip, the ability to install apps and a new remote control. That’s exactly what many hoped for for years. After Steve Jobs-biografins famous quotes where Jobs claims to have cracked the “it” when it comes to TELEVISION, many thought that it was a separate TV from Apple’s site. We follow the word of asset belongs now to the past and when it started to become clear that we would see a new part of Apple’s “pet project” Apple TV adopted many that this is where the famous Jobs-the quote would appear.
To begin with, we get an Apple TV which ordered plusmenu physically. Exactly what Apple built into the identical, but much fatter the shape of their media player we don’t know. But given how slim they can do Iphones feels the new design honestly right ugly. Fortunately, it is about a still small device that does not need to live on their own design.
More visible is the remote control that been completely for this release. The old INFRARED remote communicate nowadays via Bluetooth, charging through Lightning-port and has built-in motion sensors as well as touch pad. Just the touchpad, we can quickly conclude is the best with the whole package. It may sound a little strange, but the calibration of the plate is made so that you experience a kind of opposition between your moves on it and what appears on the screen. It gives a great sense of navigation which in every way vastly outperforms any form of movement or pekplattestyrning we experienced in television before.
At the same time will return Apple’s newfound love of not thinking it all the way in here. In the past, there has been a remote app for Ios for Apple TV, but so far not this time. This despite the fact that an Iphone would work great for all that remote itself can handle. One such app is on the way, it is said (Updated: now have Apple’s Remote app support for new Applte TV), but why it is not available from the start is an enigma. It should also be mentioned that the old Apple TV remote still works for easier steering.
As the guide in the menus, check good, but we’re not completely sure of the other parts. Totally makes sense, however, it is not. Apple found a standard on-screen keyboard was too logical and has instead implemented a new way to write on that most feels illogical and that takes more time.
Apps without thought
Apple TV supports apps now, as in the usual Apple language means a full revolution … Although TV manufacturers and different media player running on a right good while now, most recently in the form of Google’s Nexus Player.
In addition to a larger range of streaming services provides this, of course, access to games and new opportunities.
The game is controlled with the help of the new remote control, or with the help of gamepads from third parties. The latter, we have not been able to test yet though, but we can say that it definitely needed to get any feeling at all in the game as Oceanhorn. Simpler games that are controlled by motion works better with the existing remote.
The problem is that the apps are still very few in number. When it comes to video streaming is the most common ready for you, but hardly something new and exciting. The better is the universal search feature that allows you to search for video directly in the main menu and bring up results from all connected services that support the feature. In addition to the great touchkänslan are the definitively search feature which is worth highlighting with Apple TV.
A third aspect of the apps are according to Apple new opportunities such as for shopping. In addition to apputbudet is huge, small, we can not say that shopping apparna to Apple TV really differs at all from their counterparts to Iphone unfortunately.
That said, it is touch styrning of menus that are really well made and a Ideas overrun search function is just as stunning. With a company like Apple in the back get to the situation of apps to be improved quite a lot too. At the same time, it should not be said that the situation for media players and its revolutionary features are direct radiant from other manufacturers or from Smart TV manufacturers. But at the same time, it is quite a “well-feeling” over the whole thing. A bit like Apple got out something a bit soon to say they have something new without really thinking what it new would offer. A behavior that is not directly the Apple-like, but as we have seen repeated examples of during the year.
