What Your Favourite Apps May Look Like On Apple Watch [PICS]



Various designers of the Thinkapps community have released concept images of what your favourite apps may look like running on an Apple Watch.

The companies behind the two most popular messaging apps, Facebook Messenger and Skype, will more than likely be creating Apple Watch specific versions of their apps.

The concept images of Facebook Messenger depict the app displaying chat heads in a bubble like fashion, much like the icons on the home screen on Apple’s new wearable device. The app will probably include a way to reply to any incoming messages using voice dictation.


The Skype concept design shows some similarities to the Facebook Messenger app, including a way to answer incoming messages with voice dictation. The app will probably also include a way to answer or dismiss incoming calls.


Designers from the Thinkapp community also show how two ride sharing platforms, Uber and Lyft, may work on the Apple Watch.

A big part of the Apple Watch are the health and fitness features which allows users to track data, like steps taken, calories burned, and heart rate, and sync it with the Health app included on all iPhones running iOS 8. Here is a concept image which shows how fitness-tracking app Moves may look on the Apple Watch.


The designers have also included a concept for YouTube, which seems like an impractical app for your a wearable device like a watch. The screen on the Apple Watch wouldn’t be suitable for watching YouTube videos. None the less, the designers have come up with a great (but probably impractical) design for a YouTube app for the Apple Watch. Check out the concept images below:


The Thinkapp community has also included concepts for apps like Beats, Yelp, Spotify, Twitter, Tinder, and Pinterest. Check out the rest of the concept designs on the Thinkapp Blog.

One month ago, Apple unveiled the Apple Watch at a media event. Apple CEO Tim Cook took the stage with great excitement, calling this the next chapter in Apple’s story.


The Apple Watch will be available in early 2015 in three models: Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport, and the 18-karat gold Apple Watch Edition which is said to cot as much as $1200. The base model of the Apple Watch is set to start at $349 USD.

    Am I the only one who thinks this site operates rather poorly on an iPhone 6? The ads or something seem to impede the normally buttery scrolling of an iPhone. Is it just me?

  • What browser? On the main page or single posts?

    Just tested safari and chrome. Both the main page and posts scrolled fine. I have seen an issue where the main page looks to mess up scrolling but we’re investigating that part.

    There are two problems Gary (iPhone 5s for reference). First, the body of the post has margins which are sized differently than the comments section, which makes it so there is an unnatural scroll/movement left and right where there shouldn’t be until you get down to the comments where it corrects itself. Second, when you hit the comments part of the page, a severe lag gets induced which at times actually makes the page stick in a couple of places and almost stalls – until you hit the bottom. Both “features” are rather annoying…

    Since iOS 8 (iPhone 5), this site has been taking me to certain apps in the iTunes store, it’s really annoying.

    For awhile,
    I have noticed the scroll within a scroll (best I can describe it). The whole site scrolls as one which is fine, but sometimes I’ll get the text within a section scrolling which is also annoying

    The app issue has been happening to me too, this site redirects me to a panda app. I’m using iOS 8 iPhone 5c and iPad mini retina.

    Also there’s an ad box on the iPad at the bottom of the page that’s blinks on and off as I scroll up or down but stays stationary if the page stays stationary.

    It’s all been really annoying. So much so, for the most part now I just read the headlines on Twitter without loading the iphoneincanada website.

  • Is it still happening?

  • Zeke

    The ad at the bottom is gone. Awesome! I went through some pages and I was not redirected to the App Store either. I’m not sure if you do your own advertising or another company takes care of it for you, but whatever you did, thank you.

  • Great. Thanks for letting us know.

  • Zeke

    The ad is back at the bottom. A via rail ad. All good, I don’t care. Youve got to make the cash to keep this going so it’s all good. There’s a little x on the top right corner to close it but I’ve haven’t closed it. Ad dollars keep you in business! Great coverage on your site, you and your team are doing great work!

  • Thanks for your support Zeke. We do this full time and ad revenue helps put food on the table!

    I have trouble with YouTube vids opening on this site via tweetbot on a 6 plus. Might just be a tweetbot issue though.
