What’s new for Apple TV, January 10th, 2019
Learn some new songs on the handbells, go on an archer quest, and get your news opinion-free with this week’s new Apple TV apps.
Our app update highlights ask whether you’d prefer to swim with the hungry sharks or relax in a peaceful aquarium? Learn to play guitar the proper way or get your Sabbatic Tarot cards out and just sell your soul to the devil. Whichever way you go, you have our support.
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:
- Handbells (free) – Displays handbell music on your TV by number, pitch, and color. The colors match the 8 note handbell sets for kids, but you’ll have to purchase those separately, of course.
- Archer Quest Mania (free) – An arcade adventure designed in the style of ’50s comic books. Play solo, locally with a friend, or online. “Many enemies to kill, many levels to discover, many platforms to jump onto!”
- NewsNet TV (free) – A 24/7 national news channel with a focus on headlines, not talk and opinion. Access to up-to-the-minute headlines and video clips on demand, including weather, sports, and features.
- Novi – Go Novi (free) – Keep track of your upcoming events.
Updated Apple TV Apps:
- Hungry Shark Evolution (free) – Live every week like it’s shark week with this wildly popular game from Ubisoft. The update offers new live events.
- Sabbatic Tarot TV ($9.99) – “Here you will find 22 dark portals to guide you on the way to your inner black hole of selfhood.” Or, as I once called it, junior high. This “…antidote for the partial and incomplete understanding of the mysteries usually offered by the Tarot cards” has been updated for Apple TV 4K and new iOS versions.
- TrueFire Guitar Lessons (free) – If you’d rather not use the previous app to exchange your soul for guitar skills, you can learn to play with this app. It provides access to over 33,000 video guitar lessons, 11,000 tabs, and 7,000 jam tracks.
- Learn Sign Language Today ($0.99) – Learn the basics, anyway.
- Peaceful Aquarium HD ($1.99) – As opposed to Cacophanous Aquarium HD? Offers offline and online aquarium ambience, now with improved online loading.
- Weight Loss ↓ ($4.99) – 24 exercises designed by Miguel Gonçalveso to help you burn fat and lose weight.
