Avian: Twitter Map is a new app for the Apple TV that shows Twitter content on a beautifully animated map. You can choose a subject or hashtag you’re interested in and see tweets from around the world, or in a particular location you’ve set. You can choose between a traditional map style, or gorgeous high definition satellite imagery.
Apple makes incredible hardware and pulls out all the stops to showcase their latest inventions once or twice a year. Although initially not even considered for the iPhone, external development of apps for these devices has steadily grown in its influence and visibility. It should come as no surprise then that at least one lucky developer has been tapped to share the stage today and show off the potential of the new Apple TV with apps.
