Apple Watch app screenshots are required to be submitted by developers and should begin appearing on the App Store when the wrist-worn device launches on April 24, or soon after, alongside traditional iPhone and iPad screenshots. In the meantime, this tool provides an easy way to search for your favorite Apple Watch apps for a sneak preview of what they look like ahead of time.

Why does Flipboard have a Watch app? This is the problem I see coming, some developers just don't get the form factor.

Yeah. Until they put an ad in and F it all up. F Yahoo to hell with their weather app and ads.

(I'm angry because I was happy with their app and it was the best choice for me. Nothing I've found compares to their visual appeal with the accuracy of Weather Underground information. MyRadar comes close, but their icon reporting drives me nuts regarding rain: even a 5% chance of rain and it will display a rain icon. Most apps only use a rain icon if its ~30% and above. The stock Apple Weather app's icons are too difficult to read and the diarrhea splat of information at the bottom is a nightmare design choice.)

No you can't, and people understand this.


No they don't.

You do, some here do, even many here do.

But I can guarantee there are thousands of people, some with watch orders now, that don't understand this, and will be something they find out about.
