My first “real” tvOS app

I’ll be sharing more thoughts later, but I quickly put together my first functional — though far from pretty or HIG-compliant — tvOS app last night and wanted to share. You can browse every WWDC session video and easily watch it from your couch. Your simulated couch, anyway. In case it wasn’t obvious, full-screen table views are ugly and a bad idea. As expected.
