AT&T TV Apps

Applications are an important feature of Android TV and required an important position in the master application structure. I worked extensively with Google to understand how apps behave when they are preinstalled, installed during setup, installed from the Play Store on the device or pushed to the device from the Play Store website. Working within Google preinstalled services requirements I designed a system where the last used app always show at the beginning of the Apps list. Selecting View All shows all apps in alphabetical order categorized by Apps and Games. Links were provided to give the user quick shortcuts to the Play Store to get more apps or games.

Due to the focus on live and recorded TV at the time of this design there was no integration of apps into the guide or functions to create a favorites list of apps.
