The Direction of Travel
There is plenty of room for development when it comes to travel-related apps on Apple TV. You see, travel apps represent about 5% of mobile apps, but don’t yet account for anything like 5% of the apps available at the TV App Store. Will this change? It should, once the company deploys payment services through its platforms. This will enable travel apps developers to monetize their offering. I imagine big hotel brands will quickly introduce Apple TV apps once users can book rooms directly through their software – the AccorHotels app comes close, though booking requires you to also use an iPhone.
