I hate that Apple TV never really took off when it comes to the various apps that are made available for it. I’m one of those people that bought a video game remote control thinking that at some point they would actually put out some really good games, unfortunately never really did. The AppleTV much like the Fire Stick made by Amazon is a great way to be able to watch video on your TV. This just goes to show you that no matter what customers of one brand really want to be able to use that brand on any of the devices that they own.
Much like the popularity of Netflix which came from the fact that they would make an app for just about every single platform that’s out there. If the only thing you have is an Apple TV and you have an Amazon Prime subscription then you don’t really care how crappy the app is and you just want to be able to watch the content that you’re paying for through Amazon Prime.
Amazon achieved this accomplishment despite some criticism about the Prime Video app having a poorly designed interface. Apple reporters John Gruber and Rene Ritchie, for example, have both said Prime Video is the worst tvOS app they’ve ever seen, echoing a sentiment shared by some users on Twitter.
