Yesterday, Apple announced that applications for Apple Watch apps are now open.
Developers can submit their apps for review on Apple’s developer site.
The tech giant released the wearable’s developer kit, WatchKit, last November, along with added specifications about the upcoming smartwatch.
This included resolutions for the displays, and information about the various functions and notifications developers can use to bring their app to life on Apple Watch:
“WatchKit apps have two parts: A WatchKit extension that runs on iPhone and a set of user interface resources that are installed on Apple Watch. When your app is launched on Apple Watch, the WatchKit extension on iPhone runs in the background to update the user interface and respond to user interactions. WatchKit provides three opportunities to extend your iPhone app to Apple Watch: WatchKit apps, Glances, and actionable notifications.”
The Apple Watch launches on April 24th, and will cost anywhere from $349 to $17,000.
The wearable comes in three different versions – the Apple Watch Sport, Apple Watch and Apple Watch Edition.
This week, Zoosk was the latest dating brand to launch on Android Wear, joining Match.com, Tinder and Meetic.
Tinder have already expressed an interest in building their service for Apple’s wearable, and many other dating apps are expected to do the same.
