Best Apple TV apps you need to download right now

No Apple TV SDK event in March. Of course.

Earlier today a financial analyst "reported" that Apple would be holding an Apple TV SDK event sometime in March. We didn't link to it because financial analysts have a lousy track record when it comes to Apple predictions, and whomever they're writing for, it's not media and it's not customers, and I couldn't think of a timely enough way to poke fun at it. However, Jim Dalrymple of The Loop, who has an excellent track record on sorting accurate rumors from nonsensical rubbish, has weighed in.

No spoilers, tap/click on over.

A new content section called “Holiday” appeared on the Apple TV late last night, and in addition to being a collection of holiday movies, users were also presented with banners for various holiday apps.

Georgia's most-used iPhone and iPad apps of 2011

So to get it out of the way, while I'm running iOS 5 on my iPad I'm still running iOS 4 on my iPhone. I need my jailbreak, the iOS 5 untethered jailbreak just went live yesterday, and I haven't had time to update yet.

iOS apps can be installed on Apple TV, they just can't be launched (yet?)

Developer Steve Troughton-Smith has discovered that you can install iOS apps on the new iOS Apple TV, you just can't launch them yet because Apple TV lacks the capacity to do so.

So, not only is the AppleTV set up for installing applications (of UIDeviceFamily 3), but the installation actually works

Of course, adding that capability will no doubt be high on the jailbreak to-do list... if Apple themselves don't do it first. (Fingers crossed).

Apple has an Apple TV apps engineer

Apple has an Apple TV apps engineer, if LinkedIn is to be believed. What that means exactly is unknown -- maybe they simply engineered the built-in Netflix and YouTube apps -- but as MacRumors points out:

the internal view that the Apple TV is simply a collection of apps seems to be in line with future third-party expansion.

Since Apple TV (2010) is running iOS, it's probably not a question of whether or not it can run 3rd party apps, but whether or not Apple will open it up to running them.
