In the past few days, there have been several reports of Google opening retail stores. Every report says that they’ll sell Google TV’s in those stores. Is it a good time to start Google TV development? Yes, yes, I think so. Here are 3 quick reasons:
- Google TV is a software platform
- Google TV has a market for apps
- Google TV is a place to create 2nd Screen Apps – right now
In this article, I expand on these reasons and give a detailed example of creating a simple Flickr 2nd screen app using the Anymote protocol.
The example app shows recent Flickr Photo on your phone. When you select a photo, it is displayed on your Google TV.
