Apple Announces Native Apps for Apple Watch in WatchOS 2

By Rich W Woods Apple had a busy day at WWDC today. They announced Mac OS X El Capitan, iOS 9, and they’re open sourcing Swift 2.0 and releasing it for iOS, Mac OS, and Linux. Now, they’re announcing WatchOS 2. This is going to bring native apps, along with a number of new features. They’re bringing new watch faces, including the ability to use a photo as a watch face, or even time lapse…

10 Apps I Want to See for Apple Watch

10 Apps I Want to See for Apple Watch

By Rich W Woods Let’s face it. The third party apps for the Apple Watch suck. We can make all of the excuses we want for it. They’re slow because they’re streaming from the phone. The developers didn’t know what they were developing for (which is bullshit because Android Wear has been around for some time). Whatever the reason is, the apps suck. I don’t need a Twitter or Instagram app that lets me see…

Apple Watch Day 8: Navigation

Apple Watch Day 8: Navigation

By Rich W Woods Yesterday, I used another feature on the Apple Watch Sport that I hadn’t used yet, which was navigation. Before I go any further, I want to point out that no matter how much activity tracking, Bluetooth music listening, navigation, and Apple TV remoting I do, I can never get the battery to be below 45% in the roughly 16 hours that I’m awake during the day. I had to visit a…

Apple Watch Day 6: Apps

Apple Watch Day 6: Apps

By Rich W Woods Today is day six with the Apple Watch Sport. Yes, I know my reviews are coming later than everyone else’s. I ordered the space gray Apple Watch Sport, so like everyone else, I waited for it. Today, I want to talk about apps. Ever since I got the Apple Watch Sport, I’ve called it nonintuitive. It is. People have argued against this, but I’m banking on the idea that these people…

Apple Watch Day 3: Battery Impressions

Apple Watch Day 3: Battery Impressions

By Rich W Woods Apple promises 18 hours of battery life on the Apple Watch. In fact, the Apple Watch is rapidly gaining a reputation as something that has poor battery. Every time we talk about a feature that it doesn’t have, whether it be sleep tracking or that we can’t use third party watch faces or anything else, people always say “Well, it would probably drain too much battery, which isn’t great as it…

Apple Watch Day 3: Don’t Expect any Help from the Apple Store

Apple Watch Day 3: Don’t Expect any Help from the Apple Store

By Rich W Woods I have now had my Apple Watch Sport for three days. I ordered mine on April 10 when preorders started, but like everyone else that ordered the 42 mm Space Gray Apple Watch Sport, I had to wait awhile to get it. I have been very careful not to read other Apple Watch reviews as I did not want to tarnish my experience with it. I’m very happy with the Apple…

Day 2: How Apple could have made the Apple Watch Better

Day 2: How Apple could have made the Apple Watch Better

By Rich W Woods Yesterday, I received my Apple Watch Sport. I got the space gray model, so like everyone else, I had to wait to get it. I’m trying to write a little something about it every day as I continue to get used to it. At the moment, I’m wearing an Apple Watch Sport, Microsoft Band, and a Fitbit Flex, so naturally I’ll be doing some comparisons as well. I don’t want to…
