HockeySDK-tvOS 4.1.1 Reference


HockeySDK-tvOS implements support for using HockeyApp in your tvOS applications.

The following feature is currently supported:

  1. Collect crash reports: If your app crashes, a crash log with the same format as from the Apple Crash Reporter is written to the device’s storage. If the user starts the app again, he is asked to submit the crash report to HockeyApp. This works for both beta and letive apps, i.e. those submitted to the App Store.

  2. User Metrics: Understand user behavior to improve your app. Track usage through daily and monthly active users, monitor crash impacted users, as well as customer engagement through session count.

  3. Update notifications: The app will check with HockeyApp if a new version for your Ad-Hoc or Enterprise build is available. If yes, it will show an alert view with informations to the moste recent version.

  4. Authenticate: Identify and authenticate users of Ad-Hoc or Enterprise builds


  1. Before you integrate HockeySDK into your own app, you should add the app to HockeyApp if you haven’t already. Read this how-to on how to do it.
  2. We also assume that you already have a project in Xcode and that this project is opened in Xcode 7.
  3. The SDK supports tvOS 9.0.
