Apple Watch: What Your Favorite Apps Will Look Like

On September 9th, Tim Cook took stage at the Flint center to unveil Apple’s newest device: the Apple Watch.

While some are skeptical about the success of this device, designers and developers all over the world are enthused about its potential.

We had some of our designers from the Thinkapps community reimagine how popular apps might take form on your wrist.

We have approached this concept from a perspective of one action being the primary, and an optional secondary action that is always available also as a gesture (ex. “< Your Music” back link, and its swipe right gesture).
