What’s new for Apple TV, November 8th, 2018
Teslagrad highlights this week’s new Apple TV games, although fans of games that involve tiny creatures that communicate through body fluids and emojis may disagree.
We’ve also got new apps to help you plan your day and master wiring and controls, as well as updates to PBS Video, Bleacher Report Live, Cryptograph, 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.

- Spitkiss ($1.99) – It may sound disturbing, and it is about “… tiny creatures that communicate through body fluids and emojis …” but it’s also a one finger platformer that makes it perfect for playing on Apple TV. It’s also won numerous awards, in case you’re not taking it seriously.
