Apple is reportedly telling app developers to design their applications with quick use in mind.
Apparently, according to Bloomberg’s sources, Apple is suggesting that applications should be designed to be used for no longer than 10 seconds at a time. One of the main recommendations is that developers don’t design apps that constantly interrupt the wearer. For starters, this will drain the battery, but it could also get quite intrusive.
As with the iPhone and iPad, Apple has released design guidelines for building applications for the Watch. A team will screen and review submitted apps to ensure that they work and conform to these guidelines and the company’s policies.
We probably won’t hear too many juicy details ahead of Apple’s official event on March 9th. The company is going to great lengths to keep its test lab locked down. There’s no internet access, and app developers can’t bring in their own paper to work from.
There’s not long to wait to find out the final official details about the Apple Watch. There’s not much left to be revealed, but the final pieces of the puzzle will fall into place on March 9th.
