Dance Party Rhythm Game Now Available for Apple TV

Apple TV isn't really known for video games, but app developer Rolocule has changed all that with a new title called Dance Party. The game is available as an iOS app that allows a player to use their iPod or iPhone as a motion controller to control the movement of a dancer on their television. The app uses AirPlay and Rolocule’s tracking technology called Rolomotion to make the magic happen.

As of right now, Dance Party only offers a limited number of songs, but it does allow you to track the amount of calories you burn while playing. The game also features a real time multiplayer mode for up to four people, and a "Global Fitness Battle" mode is coming soon.

Netflix Finally Releases Promised iPad Update

It only took about a month, but Netflix finally released its updated interface for the iPad. Originally launched on Android tablets and the Amazon Kindle Fire, Netflix version 2.0 offers a better experience while browsing and selecting movies.

The new interface displays twice as many movies than the old interface did, and addresses stability issues. Version 2.0 is available for devices running iOS 5.0 in Latin America, the U.S. and Canada. The app is free to download, but requires a monthly fee to access Netflix's streaming services.

Can I control my Apple TV using the iPad?

One of the more appealing uses of the iPad is as a home theatre control center, using the iPad to control playback of music and video on devices around your home other than the iPad itself.

Despite the fact that the iPhone can already do this via the Remote application, many users are unaware of this fact and have found themselves wondering if the iPad will be able to do the same thing.

By simply installing the Remote application on your iPad, and completing the setup process, you can control either your Apple TV or your iTunes on your computer using the iPad.
