WWDC 2011 – Day -5 (Minus 5)

Lion, iPhone, iOS 5, iCloud….

What ever happened to Apple TV? Do you really think Apple will just drop a “non-hobby” project in your living room and stop making money out of it? I don’t think so. As a matter of fact I think iOS 5 will be the OS to actually allow devs to start making money out of Apple TV with Apps. Well maybe not Apps, but maybe “enhanced widgets”. Over the next few days I will look more in-depth into widgets and iOS 5. Maybe Apple is combining functionality?

My feeling and opinion on the matter, is that Apple should introduce a Widget platform for developing widgets that would work across all iOS devices. Think about it, we have universal apps for iPhone & iPad. Same code but different UI. Well why not have widgets for all iOS devices (inc Apple TV) same code, different UI.

I have to say it is fascinating that there has been no mention of this anywhere, with all the rumours flying about.
