Browsing through Airbnb rental spots just got easier with the new Airbnb app for Apple TV. As Tim Cook spoke during Apple's special event, on the screen behind him was the phrase "The future of TV is apps." Apple's partnership with the largest home rental website marks this shift.

With this new partnership, you can bring your Airbnb rental to life by browsing on your television. Planning your next vacation can become more of an interactive family activity, rather than a painstakingly solo computer browsing experience.

The app version of the website is much more reliant on visuals, eliminating much of the text seen on its site. The Airbnb app is just as user-friendly on the Apple TV, allowing users to scroll through pictures and hit play to save the ones they like.

Airbnb acknowledges that there is tremendous joy in planning vacations, and the through the app, it hopes to harness this feeling.
