TV Maps review: Use the Apple TV to surf the world from your couch

Glenn Fleishman | April 15, 2016
Instead of squinting at a map on your phone, why not take a look on a big screen you already own.

TV Maps pairs with a very stripped-own iOS app that lets you pass directions you’ve selected on the Apple TV to an iOS phone, which then can open the Maps app in iOS. The apps are bundled so that you can purchase the pair either via the iOS or tvOS App Store and get the complementary app.

Bottom line

While TV Maps isn’t a shattering, landmark use of tvOS, it’s useful and fun. If you have children who like exploring virtual streets or the planet, it’s a particular joy that lets them plot their own journeys.
