New Apple TV Gains Charts for Top Paid, Free and Grossing Apps
The new Apple TV launched on Friday with an all-new App Store, but early adopters were quick to realize that app discovery was limited to a single featured section and a manual search option -- unlike the App Stores on iPhone, iPad and Mac, which have several genre-based categories and top charts for apps.
Apple has partially addressed this issue today by adding top charts to the tvOS App Store, listing the top paid apps, top free apps and top grossing apps. Confirming our previous report, games make up the majority of the top spots so far, while apps from content providers such as HBO, FOX and CBS are also popular.
