Apple TV Now Has Over 2,600 Apps, Largest Category Is Games.

If you noticed video updates this year coming from the likes of celebrities Jimmy Fallon and Ellen DeGeneres, US presidential candidate Donald Trump, citizen journalists or your friends, well, you’re not alone.A new report out today details the growth of the Apple TV App Store in the month or so it’s been live, noting that the store has already grown to include 2,624 applications, the majority being games. The pressure-sensitive 3D Touch technology built into the displays of new iPhones technically makes this possible, but Apple has already refused to let apps into the App Store for trying to cash in on this unconventional idea. The live video-streaming app Periscope took off big-time in 2015; now, Apple has named it the coveted iPhone App of the Year in its annual year-end ranking of the best in mobile tech. “This game-changer made sharing and watching live videos an instant obsession,” said Apple in offering the nod.

The 1.5 billion strong social network Facebook recently added Live Video, as a test, and after the initial test with celebrities and journalists, Facebook says more of its members will begin to see it showing up their in status updates. Details of apps broken down by category was also included in the company’s analysis, and not surprisingly, “Games” was the most popular category with 1,002 apps (or 38% of all apps). Number one on the Google Play “Best” list is Flipagram, which marries your Camera Roll photos with music to create little music videos that can be shared on Instagram and Facebook. The report confirms the popularity of some of these additional categories, noting that behind Games and Entertainment, the next next most popular were Education, Lifestyle, Utilities, Music, Health & Fitness, Photography, News and Sports. A “training” mode — something that might’ve slipped by Apple’s app review team — allows users to determine the weight of items placed onto the iPhone.

Using it is simple: You open the app, click broadcast, title your subject, start recording and now your Twitter followers can tune right into your video feed. “We wanted to build a teleportation device,” Beykpour says. “We wanted you to see the natural wonders of the world from the comfort of your couch. After you’ve browsed our selections, don’t miss the titles that topped the charts in 2015.” To whet your appetite, here are a few colorful gameplay visuals from Lara Croft GO (find our full review here, and a discussion with Antoine Routon of Square Enix Montreal who worked on the title here): Apple designs and markets consumer electronics, computer software, and personal computers. According to the report, the top categories of apps actually being downloaded are Entertainment, followed by Games, News, Sports, Education, then Weather, Finance, Music, Photography and Utilities.

Subtract the spoon’s force number from the force number displayed with your goods placed on the spoon, then divide that number by 1,000 to get the force ratio. All that being said, it’s still early days for Apple TV – the store is seeing 447 new apps added every week, and with that rate of growth, these trends could change at any time.

When Matthew Whisker picks his children up from their north shore childcare centre he doesn’t automatically have to ask how their day went – he already knows. Mr Whisker has an app which alerts him to the daily activities and milestones of his children Harry, 11 months, and Lulu, five, almost immediately via his smart phone. While sitting at his desk on Wednesday morning, the IT project manager’s phone alerted him to go to the app where he observed Lulu attempting a dot painting after picking up a pamphlet about NAIDOC week. ‘‘When I went to pick Lulu up, I asked her specifically about the painting and she actually said ‘How did you know that?’. But stereotypes aside, it’s true parents today are raising their children in an era that is substantially different to that of their own parents’ generation.

Australian children are among the most chauffeured in the world – a 2012 study from the Heart Foundation found more than 60 per cent of children are driven to and from school, compared with 16 per cent in 1970. The persistent cultural fear of “stranger danger” means parents are reluctant to let their children walk to school or play alone, even though experts say there is no evidence that abduction levels have increased. All this means there is little time left for children to meander, explore, or play, says the University of NSW’s Professor Paul Tranter, who has written about “child-friendly” cities for the past 20 years. Researchers introduced a whole range of materials including 44-gallon drums, milk crates and tyres into a playground and the children were left to get on with it, building towers, forts, structures unimpeded while teachers steeled themselves for a health and safety nightmare.

And in the new playgrounds, the dominant children were no longer the big, physically able kids but the ones with creative ability. “If you’re driving your kid to school, you’re not saving time because you have to spend more time at work earning the money to pay for the cost of the car,” Tranter says. ”The roads become more dangerous and parents trap themselves in a situation where they spend their whole lives driving their kids around.” Was it an outdoors environment, he asks. Six years ago New York columnist Lenore Skenazy was lampooned in the media as America’s “worst mom” when she wrote about letting her nine-year-old son travel on the subway alone. Skenazy went on to write a book in 2010 called Free Range Kids, based on her belief that children today are overprotected and over-parented and now hosts a super nanny-style television show where she convinces anxious parents to loosen up. Parents’ fears are completely out of touch with reality, she says. “The American stats show that if you left your children on the side of the road, you would have to wait 750,000 years before they were kidnapped by a stranger,” Skenazy says. “Do you want to protect them from a crime that is so random or so rare, or do you want to protect them from getting overweight and diabetic, which is one in three children in the US.” But this fear has a profound effect.

Australian children whose parents are worried about neighbourhood safety spend about two hours a week less playing outside than other children of the same age, according to new research from the Australian Institute of Family Studies. All levels of government need to overhaul their policies to encourage their citizens to emerge from their homes. “It is a complex problem but we know what the solutions are,” Shilton says. “Our kids have had physical activity engineered out of their day and replaced with sitting … we need governments to provide quality open space suitable for children of all ages, walkable spaces where mums can go with their kids.” Australians may be surprised to learn that we are not the active nation we think we are.

Only one in five Australian children aged five to 17 meet the federal government’s physical activity guidelines of an hour of physical activity every day. Cecile van der Burgh is the co-founder of the Kids in Nature Network, which connects families and their children with opportunities and events to spend time playing outside.
