Apple Watch Review after less than 24hr

May 14, 2015
Good
  • Great HW
  • Onboarding is amazing
  • Rotation wheel is so smooth
  • you can even take Screenshots! 
  • Move the wrist towards your eyes and watch turns on
  • Driving/Walking and changing the song is amazing (both itunes and spotify!)
Bad
  • Smudges
  • Menu
    • Hard to organize
    • Hard to see the icons
    • Folders would have worked much better here or just swiping up and down glances style
    • This UI would work better on a bigger screen

 
  • ” Friends” is empty…so sad to feel this empty room syndrome

 
  • Sports Band not so easy to make tighter
  • Not so easy to get back to home
  • Apple pay credit cards should have been Synched

 
  • Adding apps should be one click meaning I shouldn’t have to tap on each app go into another menu and select on /off
 

 
 

Questions

  • How do you change the world clock cities?
 
Ideas
  • Move wrist and interact with watch
Android watch By Motorola I tried last time was horrible, doesn’t even compare to this!
 
—————–
 
Apple should allow to save more default replies
 
Also the following two screens should be synced 
 

 

 
 
Allow to choose to show specific calendars on watch
 
Or specific google emails

Currently reading @Apple ibook: #iOS Human Interface Guidelines

May 22, 2014

I told myself I need to read more but unfortunately I find classics and novels terribly boring, the last book I read was Steve Jobs’ biography which I loved and read quite quickly. I guess I need to keep reading what I love and what I love is tech, apps, mobile, business & so on…hopefully one day I’ll finally get into classics…

for now my current book is

iOS Human Interface Guidelines: Create a superlative user experience that’s founded on Apple’s design principles and guidelines. Available for free on ibooks here https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/id877942287?mt=11

iOS Human Interface Guidelines

Overall notes

  • Take over the whole screen
  • Translucent elements
  • Use system fonts
  • “As much as possible, avoid displaying a splash screen or other startup experience. It’s best when users can begin using your app immediately.”
  • Get as much information from other sources (like what? Built-in app and device settings)
  • Delay a login requirement for as long as possible
  • When your app restarts, restore it’s state so users can continue where they left off
  • Save user data as soon as possible and as often as reasonable
  •  Color as strong element of interactivity
