After the Apple Watch officially hit store shelves back in April, Apple's first ever wearable device already managed to amass a healthy ecosystem of apps created by third party developers. As a matter of fact, shortly after the smartwatch was released, there were already about 3,500 apps that were made available to Apple Watch owners, with big names such as Twitter and Instagram all publicly declaring their support for Apple's wrist wonder.
Here comes Fetch, an app made for the Apple Watch that is designed to serve as sort of mobile concierge for users of Apple's smartwatch. Thus, you can shop for products, book tickets or reservations, and even set appointments from your wrist by using the Fetch app.
As explained by Tom Hadfield, chief executive officer at Fetch, the Fetch app basically lets users fetch anything (thus, its name), and sometimes acts as a mini-butler, serving as a shopping assistant, a virtual secretary, and even a travel agent.
The Apple Watch has officially arrived, and will soon be in the hands (or more accurately, on the wrists) of millions of consumers, potentially in the range of 15 million to 20 million users. Naturally, some may already be wondering what kind of app ecosystem will flourish around Apple's newest toy. Specifically, what kind of apps are or will be available out there that consumers can use with their newly purchased Apple Watch devices?
Just in time for the April 24th launch of the Apple Watch in stores worldwide, Apple has revealed that it is rolling out iOS 8.2, the latest updated version of the iOS mobile operating system. Included in the update is a new Apple Watch app, which will basically serve as the main tool in which owners of Apple's first ever wearable device can download apps and adjust various settings, like preferences for alerts and notifications.
