    After browsing the WatchAware website http://watchaware.com/watch-appsI started thinking about the apps I use and what I'd love to see on the :apple:Watch.

    Twitter and Facebook (these are a given)
    HUE
    UP by Jawbone (it'll be interesting to see if they come out with one) I'd still use my band at night for sleep monitoring.
    Withings Health Mate - connect with my scale
    RBS Digital Banking
    myDisneyExperience app


    I'd also like to see more custome faces.
    I'm a huge Disney fan and love the Mickey Mouse one, would be nice if there were other characters. Or the ability to use your own picture as a background.

    MDE would be awesome. Let's hope they make it more reliable than their iOS app.

    I suspect Apple will eventually open up and allow developers to create and sell custom watch faces in the App store, similar to how custom keyboards are sold on iOS.

    Untill Apple opens up the API's, apps are going to be much like iOS8 notification centre widgets.

    Glances (swipe up from bottom of Watch screen) will be the most likely candidate.

    Weather apps, sports scores, news headlines etc.

    Instagram might be possible, one picture at a time perhaps.

    But until Apple allows full native apps (Late this year), apps are just going to be very lightweight.

    I can see there are 3 or 4 apps posted I could go for right now! But come on, did someone really have to create "Fart Watch" ?

    You mean stopwatch? I think that is one of the built-in apps.

    WatchAware just updated. And I love the idea of the WaterMinder app. I never drink enough water and having this little reminder and logger on your wrist is fantastic!
