Worth Reading: Rene Ritchie On Designing Apps For The Apple Watch

Rene Ritchie at iMore has some solid advice for developers looking to design apps for the Apple Watch:

“When a device is more intimate, its interactions have to be more important: Otherwise, it risks turning notification into interruption. Likewise, when a device is more visible, its interactions have to be more discreet: Otherwise it risks turning information into embarrassment.”

His advice is very much in line with the idea that the smartwatch makes tech less rude and intrusive. And I think it’s safe to say that if your Watch app isn’t unobtrusive and narrowly focused, it likely isn’t going to go very far.

Nick spends way too much time in front of a computer, so he figures he may as well write about it. He's previously written for IDG's PCWorld and TechHive.
