[prMac.com] Puchheim, Germany - As technophiles around the world begin setting up the latest generation Apple TV, PhotoWall+ by Boinx Software becomes one of the first apps ready for tvOS. Using PhotoWall+ for tvOS with the companion iOS app PhotoWall+ Camera, event organizers and party hosts can instantly transform any environment, from raging party to corporate conference, into a photo sharing experience. Tapping into the capabilities of the brand new Apple TV App Store, PhotoWall+ feeds pictures taken with the PhotoWall+ Camera iOS app directly to a monitor connected to an Apple TV 4. All the pictures are collected and stored on PhotoWall+, and can be accessed via the iCloud.
"When Apple announced the new Apple TV would have third party apps, we got very excited," says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. "This new platform is ideal for a photo wall app and we already had a blueprint to work from. Because tvOS is very similar to iOS, it was not too hard to take what we had developed for PartySnapper and derive the new PhotoWall+ app from it."
For those who are curious about the relationship between PartySnapper on iOS and PhotoWall+ on the Apple TV, check out the blog post below.
