Could use more Glances

Overall I have really enjoyed using the watch and been surprised I much I do with it responding to messages and using some apps. One thing I would like to see is the ability to add any app as a Glance. They are just easier to get to. In particular, messages and Mail would be a plus.

I don't even use glances right now because they take too long to load information.

Messages would have been my most wanted and used glance.
Was very shocked that I wasn't able to add it.

Your watch may be defective. My glances are there right when I need them. Take your watch to the apple store to be checked out.
I think he might mean that the Glances take time to update, not necessarily just open. I know that certain apps do sometimes take time to update - mainly 3rd party ones like CNN, AP and Yahoo Weather.

It's not an OS/device limitation, it's a specific code implementation, so if you've got a favorite app that you'd like to have a glance, shoot the developer a message :)

FYI, if you use Spark for email, not only does it allow you to reply, but it comes with a Glance that I believe is the last email received. Plus, it's a _slick_ iOS email client.

I hate Glances.

I don't like swiping through Glances, but I do like how the double click on the crown takes me back to my last used app. I'm surprised that a double tap on the screen doesn't do anything different than a single tap on the screen. It would be a handy way to navigate to a favorite app.

I will have to check out Spark.

That is good information to reach out to developers. Of course the 2 I want most are Apple Apps. I look at Glances as short cuts to my most used which is why messages would be great.

Thanks
