Hardly ever rate or review apps, but this is a great app.

For me, this app is the medium through which I receive the top stories in the watch world. If there's something worth talking about, I usually catch wind of it through Watchville. A great "complication" to the app is the time function. If using the app to set the time on your watch, it'll give you a 5 second countdown before the start of the next minute. I think the app's time is synched to NIST, but I could be making that up. You can choose the sites that appear on the main feed. You aren't limited to the linked articles on the feed either. You can click on related articles suggested by the site, not the app.
I love the app, because you don't have to sift through tons of topics to find one that you want to see more about. I still find myself going down a rabbit hole of curiosity anyways.
It's got a simple, neat layout, and best part of all is that it's free

New Lange watchface hinders clock function

This is still a very good app for most of its uses, such as collecting articles from the Internet on Watch news. However, the new watch face atomic clock function misses the mark big time.

The app's normal watch face, as well as the Tudor versions, are very good. The reason they work is they are a black watch background and light colored hands, and that makes it easy to read.

The new Lange watch face is essentially all white. The face is white, the hands are almost white and the hour markers are near white -it basically can't be read at a quick glance.

Even worse, it is so white that you can't use it at night even when you turn down the brightness and use the iPhone's auto brightness function.

Using it in the car as my clock, which is what I normally do, can no longer be done because it is like you're pointing your iPhone's flashlight right in your eyes.

I don't know why they decided to cripple one of the app's great functions and make it dangerous to use, but they did, so I've changed my previous 5 star rating to 4.

I also got a different free clock app to use instead of this one when I'm in the car or at work.

Good but could be better!

Great watch news aggregator! Use it all the time. Hopefully they will keep this updated...

In particular, I wish they gave you the ability to save articles! Also, please add an option to go back to the top of the news feed (maybe when you click the News button again).
