    There's a new video conferencing app called "Spin" that came out today. As I scrolled to the bottom to download the app, I saw this (see screenshot). Calling out Apple TV as a platform for the app... VERY interesting. Is this just an exaggerated use case for Airplay or are we onto something here?

    There's an SDK for sure. It's just not public yet. Is this Spin the magazine?

    It's some app that is similar in some respect to Google hangouts. Looks interesting. I literally just heard of it though 10 minutes ago. It's definitely got a communal/social aspect to it, so that struck me as interesting since Apple TV has that kind of potential.

    If it's still only streaming video over Apple TV it's no biggie,
    there's already apps in the store that do it (like Fire),
    but it looks like all the app does is stream a looped video of fire.

    I came across this the other day while reading the support forum for Roomie Remote. Somebody pointed to this post. Haven't tried it myself:

    Edit: sorry, I think this is only for a jailbreak that has to be installed first.
