Apps with your Ap­ple, Sir?

Australian T3 - - RADAR -

With Watch, Ap­ple has again built an at­trac­tive plat­form that it hopes will lure de­vel­op­ers to truly se­cure its wear­able fu­ture. Maps, Pay and Re­mote for iTunes are there, of course, and third par­ties in­clude Face­book and Twit­ter. BMW has an app that will find your car, smart home gi­ant Honey­well has one for wrist-mounted ther­mo­stat con­trol, while Star­wood Ho­tels is look­ing to use the Watch as your room key.

Fit­ness will play a big part, of course, and Nike is on board with an app to let friends know when you’re jog­ging (cheers for that). Ap­ple’s own fit­ness apps are pre-loaded, though, to feed into iOS 8’s Health.
