NitoTV has posted a screenshot over on Twitter of, quite possibly, the first ever app for 2nd generation Apple TV. From what we can tell, it’s a simple weather app.
You choose a location, the app pulls in relevant data from the internet and provides the info on your TV along with a little graphic.
sorry it took so long!! xcode buildable/linkable sample project for ATV-2:
IMPORTANT NOTES: build as RELEASE and build the shell script target, the atvBundle target (or whatever i named it) is there just so autocomplete works, it serves no other purpose.
oh and ill do my best to have a basic nitoTV out soon with at least Weather and RSS feeds working.. other stuff will take longer.
Since Apple TV doesn’t support apps itself you’ll have to jailbreak it to add that functionality. We’ve already posted a step-by-step guide on how to jailbreak Apple TV 2G which you can follow. Jailbreaking the Apple TV doesn’t do much at the moment, but once developers come up with ways to utilize the Apple TV remote, you’ll definitely want to have a jailbroken Apple TV.
