Great blog, thank you!
Nice to know the upcoming stuff with iWatch integration. Thanks!
Thanks Damien for sharing this great example. Actually today I wear the Apple Watch for the first time. Nice experience! From my perspective key success criteria: app must be super-easy to use and consume, scenario should be smart and co-existing withphone/tab scenarios, voice support. Kind regards, Sven
