XD Apple TV / OTT Testing app
Hi XD team!
I'm so excited that you are releasing the iOS and Android XD apps for testing on those devices. We have apps on those platforms, but I feel like the real game changer for us would be an OTT testing app such as a native tvML (tvOS) app for Apple TV that we could at least test our Apple TV app on.
We have our app on nearly every OTT platform you can imagine such as Apple TV Legacy and tvOS, Roku, Android TV, Fire TV, XBox 360 and new ones coming soon. Our stakeholders view our design comps on HDTVs here at our office.
The TV space is super hot right now and I ask that you explore the market for how much OTT app companies could really use a prototyping and testing solution.
Seeing our prototypes at full TV screen resolution could really help us make sure colors and fonts and image contrasts are working well.
Please be the first-to-market in this space! It could be huge for XD. Thanks! :)
This would be huge. Options for the other big players as well like Roku and Amazon Fire TV. At least mapping to their tv remotes and use the monitor as if it were the TV.
We would use this in a hot minute if there were a way to use the remote in an OTT proto.

Agreed, definitely need a solution with OTT tvOS viewer...

If you move to untethered previews it would be awesome to be able to preview to an AppleTV tvOS version of XD, so that we could easily share the prototype on a conference room screen
I agree with the need to prototype an OTT app, this is the future. There's no solution that does OTT prototyping well, that can handle multiple videos, or remote control mapping.
