Earlier this year Panasonic unveiled their new <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/article.php?subaction=showfull&id=1297857148 target=_blank><b>2011 TVs</b></a> with the Viera Connect internet platform and App Store. Today Panasonic opens the App Store to TV App developers.<br /><br /><h3>Panasonic App Store</h3>Panasonic's App Store is already available on the 2011 TV models with a small selection of video and utility Apps and a few games from Gameloft. But Panasonic has bigger ambitions and from today Panasonic is encouraging smaller developers to create TV Apps for the platform.<br /><br /><p align=center><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/vieraappstore.jpg" alt="Panasonic opens their TV App Store to developers"><br><i>Panasonic opens their TV App Store to developers</i></p><br />Eager developers can learn more at <a href=http://developer.vieraconnect.com target=_blank><b>developer.vieraconnect.com</b></a>. Panasonic mentions that submitted Apps will have to go through an approval process similar to that of Appleâ€™s App Store.<br /><br />We hope that Panasonicâ€™s efforts translate into more and better content in the App Store that still has a long way to go. If you own a 2011 Panasonic TV you can find the App Store in the Viera Connect section.<br /><br />You can also learn more about the Viera Connect platform in our <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/review.php?subaction=showfull&id=1300800238 target=_blank><b>Panasonic GT30 review</b></a>.
