  • Apple TV Updated adds Gesture Controls with Updated Remote app


    Apple has updated it's Apple TV software to 2.4. The list of changes is below:

    Flickr Search - Search Flickr photo tags to find recently updated photos of interest. Save searches to quickly find new photos or use as a screen saver for Apple TV.

    New view options - View movies By Genre, By Movie, or Unwatched. View TV Shows an dPodcasts By Date, By Show, or Unwatched.

    Updated transport and chapter modes - During video playback, click right or left to fast forward or rewind. Additional clicks increase the speed. Click down to show chapter markers.
    The most noticeable change, however, is the support of Gesture controls by the newly updated Apple Remote app! That means now sitting on the couch, without even having an Apple TV remote in hands, you can just flick to navigate, play, pause, rewind etc!

    This adds to an already great feature gallery of the free Remote app provided by Apple. You can get it here from the AppStore

      I kinda find it funny that Apple doesnt just include this as a stock app, lol.

      You'd think they'd integrate it into the iPod app too huh?

      This helps more by letting me put away the little white remotes I got sitting around.

      Why can't they implement the touch controls for regular music control?

      This is a great update and very useful. Always misplacing the AppleTV remote. Now if only will add the scrubbing control so you can change the seek rate while forwarding through tracks.
