Numerics for Apple Watch App News:
Cynapse is proud to announce the global availability of Numerics for the Apple Watch, especially designed to monitor and track key business metrics from the wrist.
We are very excited to announce the availability of Numerics, a statistics monitoring app, on the Apple Watch. This is one of our favorite apps here at MacSources and we love that they are expanding to include the newest member of the iOS family.
The sole purpose of Numerics is to keep users aware of their key performance indicators – sales today, number of tasks for the day, marketing effort’s performance or any other metric that matters most to the user. The quick accessibility and availability of these numbers on the Apple Watch can make all the difference between knowing them at a critical time or ignoring them completely.
Wearable technology has been forecasted to become an integral part of business strategy and will redefine the way people engage with their work. The Apple Watch is set to lead the revolution by miniaturizing computing onto people’s wrists. This presents a huge opportunity for apps to enable users to connect them with their business, customers or employees in a whole new way.
Since the invention of wristwatches, people have been glancing at them to track time; a changing number thats universally important to everyone. Cynapse believes the logical step for a smart watch is to enable its user to track other changing numbers that are more personal and uniquely relevant to the user. “So we set out with a mission to design a unique personal experience for Numerics on the Apple Watch to help our users better engage with their important numbers. Because, what is a smart watch without a great app that drives the user to strap it on everyday.” said Romasha Roy Choudhury, VP – Product Design, Cynapse.
The iPhone and Apple Watch versions of Numerics work together rhythmically. Users can select metrics from the Numerics iPhone app to be shown on the watch and get alerted on changes. Any of these metrics can be set as a glance on the Apple watch so its just a swipe away. Numerics for the Apple Watch implements Handoff so when a user is looking at a metric on the watch, she can seamlessly continue to zoom into the data on her phone with a swipe from the lock screen. It’s one app that moves with the user from the wrist to the palm and back again.
Numerics v3 also bundles a slick new feature on the iPhone and iPad – Deeplinking. With this new enhancement, on swiping a widget’s notification from the lock screen or tapping on Numerics’ Today Screen widget will navigate the user directly to the zoom view of the widget, instead of just opening the app, saving precious time and improving the user experience greatly.
As I mentioned, we have been fans of Numerics for iOS for quite a while and I was very excited about it being released on the Apple Watch. We loaded it on the watch and were very impressed with interface. Like the iPhone/iPad version, it is a very clean interface. And, like most Apple Watch interactions, it allows you to look at your stats at a glance and move on with your day. It’s a beautiful interface and very easy to use and setup for the watch. I can highly recommend it for people who keep track of their stats.
Numerics for the Apple Watch is now available on the App Store. Owners of the Apple Watch can download it for free and try it out starting now on their Apple Watch. There are in-app widget packs available for a variety of prices ranging from $1.99 to $99.99.
