Top tvOS App Store Downloads Dominated by Games


The tvOS App Store was officially launched only last Friday alongside the Apple TV 4, but it already includes 1,025 apps, as reported by SlideToPlay (via MacRumors).

Unfortunately, the Apple TV version App Store doesn’t (yet) include a top apps list, which isn’t surprising given its short availability and the limited number of apps. However, if you are among the proud new Apple TV owners, you no doubt would like to download a few apps for your new device.

That’s why, after some digging, SlideToPlay has put together a list of top apps, both paid and free. The writer, Jeff Scott, was quick to point out that the data is a little unreliable and even confusing in spots, which he believes is partly why it doesn’t show on the tvOS App Store.

So, without further ado, here are the two lists:

Top 10 Paid:
1. Beat Sports
2. SimpleX – for Plex
3. Galaxy on Fire – Manticore RISING
4. Lumino City
5. Alto’s Adventure
6. Does not Commute TV
7. Battle Supremacy: Evolution
8. Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved
9. Shoot The Zombirds
10. Oceanhorn

Top 10 Free:
1. Rayman Adventures
2. Crossy Road – Endless Arcade Hopper
4. The Nat Geo TV
8. CNNgo
9. CBS
10. Asphalt 8: Airborne

    Nothing of interest yet. Here’s hoping Apple TV gets more serious games, along the lines of XCOM: Enemy Unknown/Within. Of course, the size limitations could be an issue.
