Apps I Pong Now

Published on October 25th, 2018 | by Kirk Hiner


What’s new for Apple TV, October 25th, 2018

Next time someone tells you the Apple TV isn’t a gaming device, tell him, “You Don’t Know Jack, because we’ve got I Pong Now!” We’ve also got apps to help you relax, to help you keep up with all that cricket action, and even one to trap you in a parking lot. It’s a solid week of new app entries, so check them out.

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:

  • Vet Tv (free) – Stream original TV shows and movies that offer an insider view of military life. The content is “created by and for veterans, without civilian influence.” I guess you’ll have to subscribe if you want to figure out what that means.
  • DigitalPhotos With GooglePhoto ($2.99) – Access, view, and play your photos and videos from Dropbox, GooglePhotos, and Flickr on Apple TV.
  • I Pong Now ($0.99) – Remind yourself of just how far video games have come with this throwback to one of the earliest arcade games.
  • BlizzCon TV (free) – Love watching people play video games? Or talking about video games? Specifically, Blizzard Entertainment video games? Then grab this app that’ll take you inside the events of next week’s BlizzCon.
  • The Jackbox Party Pack 5 ($29.99) – One of the best party games available for Apple TV. Five irreverent games that allow up to eight players to join in with their smartphone or tablet. Check our full coverage for details.
  • Relax App ($1.99) – Chill out with a fireplace, snowstorm or natural landscape screensaver in full HD.
  • PAKO Forever (free) – Survive as long as you can in an endless parking lot. Because sometimes death-by-parking-lot is preferable to actually going into the store.

Updated Apple TV Apps:

  • Apple Events (free) – Updated text and graphics for the next Apple Event. If nothing else, it serves as a good reminder to tune in on October 30th. Relive the majesty of Apple events past while you wait.
  • Radio Javan (free) – Bug fixes and improvements for this insanely popular Persian music and entertainment app.
  • Hoopla Digital (free) – Bring the library to your living room with this service that allows you to use your library card to borrow free digital movies, music, eBooks and more.
  • Willow – Watch Live Cricket (free) – Becuase not everyone is into football, hockey or basketball at this time of year. Watch your favorite teams live and catch up on the action you missed.
