Applications - just put compatible OS X applications in the "Applications" subfolder of the frontrow folder and access them automatically using the remote control. These applications can be controlled e.g. by using a VNC client on the iPhone or iPod touch.

Scripts - this is a major part of the application that is used to install and de-install plugins and tweak the Apple TV, own scripts can be included easily
