Fullscreen iPad Apps Running on the Apple TV [Video]
Steve Troughton-Smith and @TheMudKip have made more progress on their hack allowing iOS applications to run on the Apple TV.
Much of today was spent making apps run as the full-screen iPad versions. I started writing a new launcher from scratch for the TV form factor; as of right now it's not using IR remote input - we're controlling most things from VNC or over SSH.
Here you can see me demonstrating a few apps, like Facebook, Maps, Safari and YouTube. Most apps (and games) from the App Store should work too. As you can see, iOS kinda works on larger screens!
Once the developers have completed their work you should be able to run any iOS application on a jailbroken Apple TV. We'll keep you up to date on their progress.
Take a look at the video below...
