Guardian's news to Watch
The Guardian has launched its Moments from the Guardian app to deliver news content to the Apple Watch. The app recommends single moments as well as providing new alerts with actionable notifications. Content will be tailored to times of the day as well as days of the week.
“We wanted to stick to the principle of keeping interactions light and focused, says Frank Hulley-Jones, digital designer at the Guardian. “Reviews are a great example of this, as the headline and star rating tell you the minimum you need to know. If a reader wants more, they can turn to our phone app to get the full story. We used this to influence the look and feel of the watch app whilst keeping it consistent with the tones and branding used across the Guardian. It’s important that readers instantly recognise that they’re reading Guardian content, no matter what device they’re using.”
