Reuben Bos, Creative Director at Mangrove takes a considered look at designing apps for the upcoming Apple Watch.
The article covers the basic steps to think about, to exploring the challenges posed by a new form factor and deliberating on how people will prefer to use the device.
When designing for the Watch it’s key to be aware of both the possibilities and limitations.
It’s hard to say what will be the killer feature on the Apple Watch. Will it be the actionable Notifications? Will users prefer Glances to the full App? Or will we use a Watch App to read stuff in a way we never expected on such a small device? It probably completely depends on the goal of the App and its users’ preferences.
