A long time ago, as in over 10 years, yikes, I wrote a series of posts on Engadget called “Watch this Wednesday“. Later at MAKE, coverage included a few of the watches that came out later such as the Microsoft SPOT watch and some not-standard uses/hacks for them, RSS for example (news feeds/alerts sent to a watch). At the bottom of the post is a collection, more of a walk, er, watch, down memory lane – enjoy 🙂
We’re currently developing an Apple Watch version of our popular app, Bluefruit, which allows bluetooth control of devices, all over bluetooth (great for controlling robots, etc). That’s Collin’s watch and arm, pictured above.
Any way, while we’re testing and using the Apple Watch, we’ll post up some apps we’ve tried out or found useful, the first one is Twitterrific. Used in conjunction with an iOS device you get alerts pushed to your watch and can quickly reply back with user-defined replies, dictate responses, retweet and more. It also has a nice at-a-glance feature. Super handy and useful for looking at tweets quickly.
