    As we look into building a SmugMug AppleTV app we’d like to get some feedback that I couldn’t find in the comments. Are you all looking for the ability to view just your photos on the TV? Are you looking to view other peoples photos? Are you looking to have clients, customers, family, etc (other people) view your photos on their TV? Some combination? Feel free to leave comments and let us know so we can build an app that solves your needs!

        Would love to view our photos on Apple TV. Would be amazing to have a complete access to the website where we and our friends and family can view the photos as well.

        This is a huge gap. I've been cross posting a bunch of stuff to Flickr just so I can view it on my appleTV. I'm a paid smugmug member - if there was a similar service that included appletv, I would switch to it.

        Adobe just added a Ligthroom app. Basically we need the same functionallity - at least as a start. Since you have and IOS app - it cant be to much work to port it to Apple tv.

        Ideally the Apple TV account should be able to login and view as an individual SmugMug user.

        The Roku SmugMug client is a good reference point. At my kids school we use it to see the school photos. Ideally it should be view only so that when it is in kiosk mode you don't have to worry about people breaking into your account.

        I would mostly just like to view my own photos on the apple tv, so when I get family visitors we can all enjoy the slideshow on the big screen

        I added my vote on this SmugMug App for AppleTV long ago. How about a progress report. Where are you on this? Is it even being done? Are you waiting for Apple's developer conference in a week to see what changes in tvOS?

        In any case, some news from you would be most welcome.

        1) Look at my own photos
        2) Share access with family/friends
        3) Search for other user pictures

        Latest Apple TV support , actually I joined and to be renew soon.
        4K video support please

        Agree with the general sentiment that viewing our own photos is priority number one. What I hope is implied is that seeing our own videos as well is high priority, although I hope that this is implied.

        From there, I would absolutely love to view photos that have been shared with me and the ability to have my family/clients view shared photos.

        I also agree the ability to view photos as a screensaver would be great, though please release the app and then add the screensaver feature.

        Thank you!!

        Just looking to view my photos and have them on slideshow mode for friends and family to sit and view on the TV or just have rotating in the backdrop of a family event. It would be nice to have the option to cycle through all galleries, or specific ones etc.

        And it would be a great advertisement for your service I'm sure...

        Want to show my photos, and my fellow friend photographer photos, as well as view a selection of public favorites. Mostly for my entertainment, but I am paying for the Pro account and occasionally have "jobs" that I'd like to display. This is one issue which has stalled my Smugmug use and kept me more on Flickr. Ah, and of course this must extend to video as I'm increasingly doing time-lapse and starting drone shots. Flickr and Vimeo are so convenient. Thanks.

        COMMENT: I'm looking for the ability to view JUST MY PHOTOS on Apple TV. Agree it would be a nice bonus, however, if other people could use an AppleTV app to view my galleries (either public, password-protected, or unique-URL) if possible.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        As stated before, first is own images but other's images would be a good second.

        I can view my Vimeo videos and those of others.

        Seems to be taking for ever to get this feature off the ground when so many other media outlets have been on Apple TV since the beginning.

        Hi, run like slideshow would be very nice. Also if there could be a random viewing why - so the tv could look like a picture frame on the wall and change the image every so often like 10 min. and that way the TV was not just a TV but a large image frame viewer.

        Aaron -- My priorities:

        First priority -- View my own photos

        Second priority -- Ability for others to view my galleries on their own Apple TV (according to the access I have specified)

        Thanks for asking,

        Dave P.

        Hi Aaron,

        Thanks for getting back to us with this. I concur with Adam's list of priorities:

        1) view own photos
        2) clients view photos
        3) view others' photos
