While the Popbox isn’t even available yet they are trying to get developers on board with a SDK. Their developer program works with the unreleased Popbox and the Popcorn Hour C-200 and A-200. I’m glad that these new apps will work with the existing Popcorn Hour models. ZatzNotFunny said that it is still on target for the $129 price point. They need to release it soon or the Boxee Box will steal the market plus all the other streamers currently on the market.
The popbox SDK hooks into the popbox UI to handle remote commands, execute widgets, and load application-specific data. Developers will be able to create popapps that play videos, music, and photos, read and write content metadata, and access files on mounted drives and UPnP servers from the home network or media from the cloud.
