base on latest discussion with various groups, we should add an option for users to "view URL" on TV Web Apps listings
+1 for Tori's Option # 3 - "Place URL inside option menu"

I think this approach would be best, given the URLs we have today. For illustration, here is an example of two of our current content URLs:

Hi Tori,
Could you update the UX spec to reflect this so Joseph can work on that?

Comments from previous discussion in email thread for record


Joe: #3 looks good, like what we discussed in the morning

Michael: +1 for Option 3 - "Place URL in option menu"

Elvin:  For the interim, the URL should be 'visible' to users, but we should process that URL as we would in any other context. Longer term something like Option 1 or 2 would be preferred as it makes most clear who is responsible for the content and sets users expectations right off the bat.

Joseph, please checkout this spec and see if there is any missing piece. Question: for hosted app, do we know their launch URL in manifest from server side?

Yes, api will give us the url of the hosted app.

However, in the spec p26, I'm not sure if we can change the text of ok button in a native confirm dialog. Or should this be handled by the system app?

After discussion with Luke and Ricky, it seems to be more appropriate to handled by the system app.
