I don’t know why developers holding back has to always be painted
as skepticism. Is Instagram still skeptical of the iPad five years
later because they don’t have an iPad app? Of course not.
Developing apps for a new product category takes time. You have to
think things through carefully if you want to create a good
experience. Remember, Facebook for iPad came out 18 months
after the first iPad which was available for purchase in April
The truth is some apps are just not going to be ideal on the Apple
Watch. This is not a smaller iPhone on your wrist. I’m not sure
why people — especially those that cover technology for a living
— can’t seem to understand that.
In fact, have you tried Instagram on the Apple Watch? It’s
terrible. It has no business being on there. It’s a worse
experience if you ask me.
