Apple TV 3.0 Software With Redesigned Interface
Apple has redesigned its user interface for its TV software, which is claimed to make navigation easier
Apple’s TV 3.0 software features a redesigned main menu that makes navigating your favourite content simpler and faster, claims Apple.
The redesigned main menu on Apple TV gives instant access to favourite content. Recently rented or purchased movies, as well as other content including TV shows, music, podcasts, photos and YouTube, are accessible directly from the new main menu.
Apple TV users can listen to genius mixes through their home theatre system and listen to up to 12 endless mixes of songs that go great together, automatically generated from their iTunes library. Customers can also enjoy Internet radio, allowing them to browse and listen to thousands of Internet radio stations, as well as tag favourite stations to listen to later. Apple TV’s support of HD photos is enhanced with iPhoto Events, which simplifies finding your favourite photos on Apple TV, as well as iPhoto Faces, which gives access to photos organised by people identified in iPhoto. Apple TV users have direct access to a catalog of Hollywood films on iTunes including HD video. Users can also choose from a selection of 11 million songs and thousands of music videos and TV episodes to purchase directly from their Apple TV or browse and enjoy the iTunes Store podcast directory of over 175,000 free video and audio podcasts. Purchases downloaded to Apple TV are automatically synced back to iTunes on the user’s computer for enjoyment on their Mac or PC or all current generation iPods or iPhones. iPod touch or iPhone users can download the free Remote app from the App Store to control their Apple TV with a simple tap or flick of the finger.
