Four Big Apps Inbound for Apple Watch

Yahoo Prepping Four Big Apps for Apple WatchYahoo! announced Thursday that four new apps are headed for Apple Watch and will be available on April 24th.

The apps — Yahoo Weather, Yahoo Sports Fantasy, Yahoo News Digest, and Yahoo News Hong Kong — have been  “reimagined and simplified for the watch,” which will let Yahoo deliver a highly engaging and personal experience in a new way.

“We’re always looking at how users will engage new form factors, and we’ve taken the wrist computer as an opportunity to rethink our product experiences. Design generally loves constraint, so we rebuilt for the simplicity and user expectations of this screen,” said Adam Cahan, Yahoo’s senior vice president of mobile and video.
“For the Apple Watch, in particular,” he adds, “we’ve added top of the hour updates from Yahoo News Digest and included micro-summaries with a new speed reading feature, for Yahoo Weather we’ve added “feels like” for an immediate at-a-glance visual update, and with Yahoo Sports Fantasy we’ve included Smack Talk with dictation. We hope you love using them.”
