See how popular app Todoist will look on the Apple Watch

That iThingy You're Wearing
February 2, 2015

We’re getting another glimpse of how developers plan on taking advantage of the new Apple Watch. Popular to-do app Todoist showed off its Apple Watch interface to MacRumors earlier today.

As you can see, Apple Watch users will be able to accomplish a number of tasks directly from their wrist, including view upcoming tasks and categories, reply to comments, and complete or schedule tasks. Todoist is also promising a task filter view as well.

Here’s a quick video that shows the Apple Watch version of the app in action. Click here if you can’t see it.

The Todoist app for iOS devices can be downloaded now on the App Store for free. It’s universal and designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini.

A yearly premium subscription, which unlocks a number of other features, can be unlocked with a $28.99 in-app purchase.

In late January, game developer Nimblebit also announced that its upcoming puzzle game Letterpad will be playable on the Apple Watch. An accomplished designer from a digital marketing firm also took time to speculate on how some popular apps might take advantage of the new device.

Last week, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that the watch is on schedule and will arrive sometime in April. Prices start at $349 and will go up from there. Buyers will be able to select from three different versions, the low-end Sport Model, the Apple Watch, and the 18-karat gold Apple Watch Edition.

I’m hopeful we’ll see many more developers show off how they are planning to take advantage of the new device. Just like with the iPhone and iPad, third-party apps will be key to the Apple Watch’s future.

For other news today, see: Apple releases iOS 8.2 beta 5 to registered developers, Apple’s iPad continues to lead as worldwide tablet sales fall, and Apple continues retail expansion in China with new Tianjin store set to open on Feb. 7.
