What’s new for Apple TV, December 6th, 2018

Plenty of great new Apple TV apps to check out this week, including two for photo display, two for Christmas festivities, and one for some serious Chess competition.

In update news, we’ve got new fireplace screensaver packs to keep you warm and a major update to one of the better Apple TV bowling sims. 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:

  • Google Photos Explorer ($1.99) – Exactly what it says. Access your Google Photos Library on Apple TV.
  • Castle Gallery (Free) – I really dig this concept. This app imports up to 150 of your personal photos and displays them on castle walls for you to tour. It even connects to streaming music services.
  • Christmas for TV ($0.99) – Looped videos and music for your festivities.
  • Llama Time (free) – Sing along with Christmas songs in Spanish.
  • Learn Korean Today ($0.99) – And maybe by next year you’ll be able to sing along with Christmas songs in Korean. Designed by LearningSheep.
  • Elemental Control (free) – Wallpaper app that allows you to control the elements (or at least the wind).
  • TV Chess (free) – Play locally against a friend, against the AI with 10 skill levels, or against others online.

Updated Apple TV Apps:

  • TMZ (free) – An all-new app for Apple TV, they say, making it easier than ever to find the latest videos from TMZ, such as “Justin Bieber & Hailey Baldwin Wedding Ring,” “Kim K Can’t Live a Normal Life Anymore” and other riveting stories.
  • Winter Fireplace (free) – Three new 4K fireplace packs featuring full-framed fireplaces, fireplaces without borders, and some seasonal holiday selections.
  • Strike! Ten Pin Bowling (free) – Big update for this Siri Remote controlled bowling sim. New games (including Mega Lane, Duck Pin, Rubber Band Duck Pin, and Candle Pin Bowling), improved graphics and physics, online play, and plenty more. We may just have to give this one a full review.
