    Hey Guys!

    Seems like I'm heavily involved in the AW part of the forums now so I'd love to get more opinions and conversations out into this area.

    Obviously, with the introduction of the Apple Watch App Store, third party apps will be popping up like mad... eventually.

    There are a lot of people out there though that really want a particular AW third party app to come out ASAP to the point where one third party app becomes a selling point for that user.

    So what third party apps do you guys want on the Apple Watch? I personally want AW apps such as Spotify, Skype, FB Messenger, Instagram, Twitter, GMail & Sonos (just to name a few)

    I'll also include a poll of third party apps that have been brought up quite a lot recently.

    I'm looking forward to your must haves in terms of AW third party apps!

    :)

    All the home automation stuff, sonos, dropcam, nest, hue, etc...

    Starting to get really pissed off that I can't control anything with home kit yet, hue especially needs to get its act together.

    maybe something from GoPro and a Sony Content manager app from their pro line of video cameras to control the camera.

    I just hope the notifications for mail, texts and calls are good and easy to use.

    From the demos, the basic notifications (mail, text, etc.) seem like their easy to respond to. Let's hope it's easy for developers to do so as well.

    I'm hoping for a Spotify app. That's literally all I need and I'll be happy.

    LiveCams. It only has to display the main favorite cam.

    I want a Clash of Clans glance to check how much loot I have and most importantly how long I have a shield for.

    An app to count my reps when lifting.
    And
    Runmeter & Walkmeter - just so I can start or stop the phone app.
    Mynetdiary - so it's easy to add food.
    Sleep Time - the phone app works well but would interesting.

    Looking forward to OmniFocus supporting the watch. I already know it's coming thanks to tweets from their CEO. But, still... that will be one of the first third party apps I actually use.

    Oh, and the one I'm working on, of course. :D

    So true. However, if they take ages to make an AW app than we could control Spotify like we control it through control center on iPhones in the mean time? Maybe?

    That's what I'm hoping for until we get an official app, but who knows if that's how the AW will function. Let's just hope Spotify releases an AW app soon after launch.

    I'd like an app that will let me quickly note expenses by voice and keep track of my cash and savings.

    I need apps for my home automation gear:

    Nest
    WeMo
    Wink

    I finally just yesterday found a pebble app for the wink, so I can control all of them from there, but I'm ditching the pebble for the Apple Watch and hope there will be parity soon after launch.

    Google maps. Am I really the only person who'd hate to go back to using Apple Maps or has this been covered elsewhere? I'd love to discover that Google maps will be accessible but I can't find any mention of it anywhere.
