A new concept by Hungary-based design team JBS Labs gives us a peak at how the popular Instagram app might look on Apple’s upcoming smartwatch. According to BusinessInsider, the concept has basically trimmed down the information displayed on Instagram’s smartphone apps and has re-arranged it for the Apple Watch’s smaller display.
As you can see in the image above, Instagram photos are displayed at the maximum width possible in the newsfeed, while the only other information you see is the name and avatar of the image’s poster. Double tapping will like the post while a single tap will bring up the details normally found underneath an Instagram post. Similarly, Profiles show a user’s picture, posts, followers, and those they’re following easily accessible by either tapping or scrolling.
“JBS Labs even showed off how Instagram could take full advantage of the Apple Watch’s two styles of notifications: “short look” and “long look” notifications.
Below you can see how a short look notification presents an overview of the total Instagram notifications, while the long look notification breaks it down by likes, comments, and new followers.”
I don’t know about you guys but I personally love the concept. Do let us know what you think.
