Don't just use your Apple Watch to tell the time ...

Presenter: Danny Gorog, Director, Outware Mobile

With the Footy Finals just completing, many would have referred to their Apple Watch. The AFL Live Official App for Apple Watch is now available and allows users to quickly and easily check AFL match start times, live scores, match stats and the ladder.

The user experience (UX) approach for the Apple Watch is entirely different to smartphones and tablets. Users appreciate very short engagements that provide context specific information with minimal interaction. This means the app has to be designed with a shallow navigational hierarchy and smart logic to work out what information the user might want at any given moment.

The AFL Live Official App for Apple Watch is designed to be used on the go and at a glance. Users simply have to lift their wrist and swipe to view key features, rather than take their phone out and launch the app, before being able to access the information they want.

At this meeting Danny will talk and demonstrate the AFL app and will also cover the features in the forthcoming new and exciting IOS 9 and new iPhones particularly from a development perspective and also update us on Outware's progress (growth to 120 ppl, opening Sydney office, 50% sale to MIT). With his Crystal Ball firmly held in hand, he will give us his vision of future developments in the field of mobile devices.

Danny is well known to iMuggers from his previous talks where he explored the concept of Mobile Apps and twelve months later covered the process of taking an app from concept to the App Store.

We also know him through his many exposures on the media. Two years ago Danny announced at iMug that the latest version of Snap Send Solve Version 2 had been made live in the App Store. Snap Send Solve is now the most popular and convenient way to get things fixed anywhere in Australia.

Danny is a freelance technologist journalist. His writing has appeared in the Herald Sun, The Age, Macworld Australia, Home Magazine, ABC Science Online. As well, Danny is also a regular contributor on radio, appearing on SEN's The Run Home and Radio Australia's Breakfast Club. Best of all, he lives in Melbourne.

Outware Mobile are Australia's most experienced app developers. They have been at the frontier of mobile app development since the iPhone went mainstream in 2009 and have published more apps than any other Australian developer.

Outware was founded by developers and their focus is on best-practice software engineering to ensure that their products are fully tested, delivered on-time and on-budget. Outware have Australia's largest team of dedicated iOS developers and dedicated Android developers.
