When Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) launched the Apple Watch, it was expected to become one of the best platforms for custom apps but a few months down the line, it is still hard to point out interesting Watch Apps.
One Apple Watch App has however risen to recognition and is quickly gaining popularity. The app is known as Sleep++ and though it is not a new app, its developer David Smith has revamped it to be something better. Recent updates of the app include features that make it easier for users to keep track of their sleep. The app is cleverly engineered to monitor a person's sleeping habits. The watch has to be in airplane mode, and the user has to wear it.
According to David Smith, the app has received about 170,000 downloads and those are good numbers considering that the watch has only been purchased by a few million people.
Since its debut, the Apple Watch has raised a lot of interest particularly in the wearables industry. However the software aspect of the device has faced a lack of practical apps for the Apple Watch and the available ones have been very few. Instead, the developers introduce third part apps for the Apple Watch but they too have not gotten much traction. As a result, the Apple Watch is an interesting gadget whose full potential remains unlocked.
The app takes advantage of the accelerometer installed in it and uses it to detect when a person is awake, when they are restless, in light sleep or deep sleep. Once the users wake up in the morning, they can find logged information about their sleep. The developer configured it with as best as possible to make the app as appealing as possible.
The interface is also very simple and straight forward. Since the Watch has only one button, it also integrates very well with the app because the button acts as the start and stop feature for the app. Sleep++ also allows for synchronization with other health kit apps such as the Health App. It also includes the ability to log in night information only in case the user forgets to turn it off.
The app also shines some light on Watch Apps because it is a good example that Watch apps that add value to daily life of the Apple Watch can still be developed. Developers still have to figure out what kind of apps to make for the Apple Watch.
