More evidence of Apple TV apps appears online

New evidence of apps support on the second-generation Apple TV has surfaced online. Mac Rumors points to a LinkedIn profile of an Apple intern, who describes him/herself as an “AppleTV Apps Engineer.” Last week, it was revealed that the second-generation Apple TV, despite using a user interface extremely similar to that of the first-generation model, actually runs a version of iOS. Reports from Engadget prior to the device’s launch that correctly predicted a 720p video output cap, the device’s A4 chip, and its use of iOS, also said the new Apple TV would be capable of running third-party applications, although not necessarily the same apps found on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
