Marco Arment on Redesigning Overcast’s Apple Watch app

Marco Arment:

I had also initially underestimated glances, which are very important in practice. Going out to the honeycomb app screen to launch apps is cumbersome — it’s much more compelling to keep a small number of glances, using them (and complications, which I really want third-party access to) as status updates and quick app-launching shortcuts.

Fantastic and fast rethinking from Marco on how apps should be optimised for the Apple Watch. Hopefully, Apple will allow developers access to the complications at the upcoming WWDC.
