What's New in Version 1.2.2
- Minor bug fixes
Interesting use of Apple Watch Features
I downloaded this app with my normal skepticism towards the apple watch apps' power.
I discovered that even while it has limited capabilities for synching and updating watch faces, it feeds ingeniously the Apple Watch with merged images and headers from your favorite news providers and social feeds into easy to synch pictures. These won't need much data handling to be kept on your wrist. Hence it will be a touchless synch that will keep you updated with the latest information that you'll have to search by your own means if you are interested in what you see.
I'm giving 4 stars for exceeding my expectations and because it has a lot of room for growth. I'd like to see better image and header merging, more feed providers, better social feed interactions as selecting specific twitter accounts to synch and better headline display due that many texts end up being cut short.
This is great!
Wow an app that seriously makes me change how I use social media and take in news. Gives a breath of fresh air into my social accounts. Get great overview of feeds on the watch and can even save stuff for later so I can share/read/repost.
A Nice Concept but a Storage Eater
A good and quick way to browse places like Reddit, Twitter, Tumblr, and more. But takes WAY too much storage. On the first day of using this app, I had about 100+ photos on my phone created. It's annoying. I'd give this a two star review but don't want to be too critical since I like the concept of the app.
