We won't see any new Android apps on the Google TV platform until later this summer, but there are still developers cranking away on web apps like this PokerFun.tv game by MOVL. MOVL scored a win in Samsung's Free the TV Apps competition for its WeDraw Pictionary-style game (which also runs on Google TV) and this is the followup. They showed it off at Google I/O and it allows users with most any smartphone to connect to the same poker game and control play live on the TV. Founder Alan Queen has a post on the Google TV blog remarking how much he likes the platform for its ability to link other devices and use a full web browser to build its games on which is a good sign, but we'll wait to hear more reports now that the Fishtank is out to find out how things are going.
