4K Photo

by Thomas Alexnat


4K Photo - the ultimate photo viewer

For you it is a free companion App for your AppleTV to browse through your Photo Library with pleasure. It adds more value by optional zooming and display of GPS metadata when available. Use the swipe gestures on your trackpad to switch to the next or previous image. Double tap will enable zoom mode and just clicking forwards to the next photo.



- Smart sorting for Shared Albums: Customizable options to sort the Shared Album list. These include

- Alphabetical A to Z
- Alphabetical Z to A
- Album priority by Oldest Photo in album
- Album priority by Newest Photo in album

- Changed settings take immediate effect without the need to restart the app

With the introduction of dedicated sorting options of the Shared Album list all changes take immediate effect. This might take a few seconds to recalculate the Shared Album list.

Since the current APIs provide no direct access to the album dates, we identify all the dates of the photos and then perform a smart sort algorithm to collect and order the corresponding albums.


- Smoother scrolling performance in PhotoStream and Album mode
- Better positioning and cell alignment of the photos in the collection view to look more pleasing
- Updated default preferences for first time users and new installations: By default the sort order for the shared albums is now ascending. This means older photos are shown first. This is more natural when viewing an album. PhotoStream however will display the newest photos as usual.


- Settings Tab for Zoom Factor (1.5x - 3.0x), Sort Order in albums and optional GPS overlay
- Better localization

You can now configure the behavior of the GPS map overlay, Sort Order in Album View and a variable Zoom Factor from 1.5x up to 3.0x. Time and Date will be displayed corresponding to your current Locale.


- Browse through your Photo Library with the latest photos first
- Browse through your shared albums
- Swipe through photos
- Double Tap will enable a 4K Zoom, enlarging the photo
- Optional Metadata (GPS) is displayed when available


Please note that the current AppleTV only supports HD output. For upcoming devices we will try to add a version that also supports 4K output. The version enabled a 4K like zoom.
