Google TV, Really?

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:

  1. Google TV is a software platform
  2. Google TV has a market for apps
  3. 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.
