Which Apple Watch App Do You Like Or Look Forward To Using?
There's been over 1,000 Watch app applications submitted to iTunes. Use this thread to list any you may like, or wait until you're actually using them on your watch and review them here.
Here's Apple's list of Built-in apps for the Watch.
Apple - Apple Watch - Built-in Apps
The Camera Remote will be interesting.
Here's a few I may like:
Uber - You don't need to do a lot with Uber's iPhone app. You put in your credit card info, let it access your location, and that's about it. From then on, all you need to do is press a button to hail a cab. For Uber, a Watch app offers a quicker way for people to get to that button.
Dark Sky - It's weather info with the necessary notifications you can see at a glance.
Nike+ Running - A fairly fully featured app, offering run distance, pace, location, and history. Eventually this will be a great health app for the Watch.
Twitter - Twitter's approach is to offer just a little dab: from the main screen, you can look at your timeline or you can look at current trends, and that's it. You can't view every tweet. But you can see what's popular and you won't miss your DM's.
Honeywell - Honeywell may not be as widely known as Nest, but its Watch app is a perfect example of how Apple is moving into the home.
Shazam - This is a good example of the Watch working with the iPhone. Just tap the icon, and your phone listens to the song and the info shows on the Watch.
Instagram - Browse, "Like", leave emoji comments, and receive notifications.
Evernote - Apple says, "Get even more convenient access to features. Dictate a quick note. View recent notes. Set reminders. Find notes made near you. And see content related to an upcoming meeting."
tinyCalc - It's the calculator widget I've been using on my NC center. I like it's simple design and hope it works well with the Watch.
Mint Personal Finance - It's great on the iPhone, so I'm looking forward to what it does on the Watch.
Later this year, developers will be allowed to create native apps for the Apple Watch. This means the software can exist and run entirely on the watch, and it will open up all kinds of new possibilities.
