Have an app you’d like developed for the Apple Watch? With over 3500 Apple Watch apps on the market today, it’s a great time to see what has succeeded and what has flopped to help you decide if your app will be a good fit for the Apple Watch.
The news and weather sectors are hugely popular. With the small screen of the watch, users want to be able to scroll through headlines that are well organized and eye catching. Consider an app that provides a summary and photo with the option to read the full story for those users who are particularly interested in the finer details. As for weather, users want to be able to quickly open an app and see the current weather with options to view the forecast as well as check the weather at different locations.
If a travel app is more your style, consider a location-based app since your users will probably be new to the city. Tourists find reviews very helpful; from restaurants to museums, they want to know what is worth their time and money. If you can incorporate public transportation routes, you’re likely to gain a few more downloads.
As for a music app, Apple Watch users again need a very clean and easy to use design. Radio apps and music organizing apps are always popular, but you’ll need something that makes yours stand out from the rest in order to get users to download yours.
While the Apple Watch may be targeted towards busy users who want to check their devices on the go, games are still being downloaded! If you choose to develop a gaming app for the watch, consider short levels that someone could complete while waiting for their next appointment or something that can be saved and continued at a later time. Trivia is a great idea for users who wish to waste some time while still learning.
Sports apps are perfectly suited for the Apple Watch. If you can’t watch the game, you need an up to the minute scoreboard. Consider developing an app that allows users to check different sports, teams, and play by plays with the option to get notified if there is a change in score.
Productivity apps are also well suited for the watch. Parents on the go may need to create lists and get notified at important times. Anything that helps workers stay organized will also be a hit.
And finally, fitness! The possibilities are endless for health and fitness apps on the Apple Watch, but you will need to bring something unique to the table to stand out from the competition.
We wish the best of luck with coming up with the next biggest idea for an Apple Watch App!
