CloudKit Explorer Lab - Move Content From Desktop to Cloud and Then Into TVOS
A small platform for experimenting with Cloudkit, especially with AppleTV.
Pull images thru iTunes on the desktop, or from iCloud files, or from Photos Albums
For real time music and other performance purposes it is convenient to put media asset on a TV screen without depending on a host computer or even a mobile device acting as a relay.
This laboratory is a start towards measuring the latencies surrounding the use of CloudKit as a means for uploading content to the iCloud and downloading content to the apple TV.
Code common to IOS and TVOS TBD: turn into framework
- viewer for IOS
- viewer for TVOS
- tbd: viewer for OSX, Web
