WatchKit has been announced. We'll be among the first to put it through its paces.

November 23, 2014

Learn

Some programming experience and familiarity with Xcode will be helpful. By investing a bit of time up front, it will make it much easier to build something cool. 

Some of the experiences that would be fun to see:

  • CoreMotion magic with sensors
  • A fluid user experience
  • A technically impressive app
  • A new idea that wasn’t yet possible on the iPhone or iPad
  • Bringing in connected API data
  • An inter-personal communication app
  • Use of the Watch hardware
  • Use of notifications and glances
  • Use of health data

If you’ve never built an app before, you’re still certainly welcome to hack. After all, we’re all beginners. 

We have a Workshop on Saturday, Nov 22 and more coming on our Meetup group.

May I also suggest as preparation:

Build

 
 
 

One more thing: Today we're announcing our very own Watch Simulator. It is a template app that runs on an iPhone or iPad. Run it in Xcode and you'll get a sample counting app. Just another way to be ahead of the game. Can't wait to see what you build with it.
