Apple TV Lobby App

The Apple TV Lobby App is a modern take on the traditional lobby Powerpoint. The native tvOS app shows upcoming calendar events on top of a video background. The app integrates with a Google Calendar to ensure events are accurate and up to date.

MichiganLabs was hired by DesignVox, a top design firm in West Michigan, to develop the tvOS app. The goal was to provide viewers of the app with a calming and fluid experience while showing important information and upcoming events to guests. The app is easily customized using a configuration file hosted on the web, allowing for different backgrounds and Google Calendar sources.
