Apple TV Hacked to Run Side-By-Side iOS Apps (Video)

Posted on December 31, 2011 by

iOS hackers and developers Steven Troughton-Smith (@stronghtonsmith) and Nick (@TheMudkip) have created an app launcher and working window manager for the second generation Apple TV. This is a framework for running iPhone and iPad apps side-by-side on the device. This project probably won’t be available to the public anytime soon, but it’s pretty cool what they’ve been able to accomplish so far.

You can currently get iOS apps on your Apple TV using AirPlay, but this hack would make it possible to run multiple apps at the same time. We’ll keep you updated on their progress.
