What’s new for Apple TV, August 9th, 2018
No yoga apps in today’s new Apple TV app roundup, for a change. Instead, it’s about dance, music lessons for the kids, a classic arcade game homage, and the Meg. We’ve also got the best of British TV, an OTA channel guide for cable cutters, and more.
Prices provided below are accurate at press time. Free downloads are for the app only and may require a subscription or in-app purchases for full functionality.
New Apple TV Apps:
- DanceCast TV (free) – Dancing is not relegated to C-list celebrities, after all. Anyone can dance, and now anyone can watch dance videos produced by DanceOne, LLC. and its partners.
- b(rain) TV ($0.99) – A “mad little arcade game.” Play with up to three other people via your iPhone or iPad.
- Prodigies Music Lessons (free) – One would argue that a prodigy wouldn’t need music lessons, but don’t let that stop you from getting this library of over 300 music lessons for kids ages 2 to 12.
- Vertrektijden (free) – “Turn your TV into a display board for the train departure times of any train station in The Netherlands!” Because you can.
Updated Apple TV Apps:
- Shadowgun Legends (free) – “Compete in the new PvP mode, find new ribbons and medals, and collect awesome gear in your increased premium inventory.” Bug fixes, too.
- Acorn TV: The Best British TV (free) – They say that, and yet the description makes no mention of Benny Hill. That didn’t stop NPR from calling it “Netflix for the Anglophile,” however.
- Hungry Shark World (free) – Updated to promote The Meg. And why not?
- Monster RPG 3 ($1.99) – An old-school JRPG so retro in its visuals that it makes retro games look like Pixar films.
- Tanks: Seek and Destroy ($2.99) – A very highly-rated Battlezone clone. Classic arcade gaming at its vectory best.
- Over the Air TV Channel Guide ($1.99) – A channel guide for over-the-air broadcast networks. No ads to interfere, no account to set up, no cable network info provided.
