Frankly speaking, I was slightly skeptical about how developers would optimize their apps to seamlessly run on Apple Watch when it was launched in 2015. However, having used the smartwatch for more than a couple of years, I can firmly say that all of my doubts have vanished for the better. Despite having the obvious limitations, apps are designed to take the full advantage of the most adorable Watch of the planet. Though there are a number of exceptionally user-friendly apps, these are my best Apple Watch apps.
I like the apps which are easy-to-use even on the small screen of the Watch. The ones that have neat UI charm me a lot. To ensure all of my needs are fully taken care of, I use a variety of apps—from email, note-taking to social networking apps. Would you like to catch ’em all? Let’s scroll through the long lists!
