Ilta-Sanomat has released a news app for Apple Watch smart watches. The app uses elements of the Apple Watch user interface and shows the front page as well as news headlines of different sections, sends news notifications, and allows news to be read on an iPhone.Ilta-Sanomat gained good experiences in developing smart watch apps from a similar launch last November for a Samsung watch.“We have learned a lot, and Samsung smart watch app users have also been satisfied. A survey amongst the users indicates that the app's ease-of-use is key. News headlines can be checked on the watch whatever the circumstance,” says Valtteri Vartianen, development manager of Ilta-Sanomat.“We want to be amongst the first to test the possibilities of wearable electronics. We believe that wearable electronics, such as smart watches, are next to change the digital world after mobile," says Timo Rinne, director online of Ilta-Sanomat.Predictions of Wall Street analysts about how many Apple Watches will be sold this year vary a lot, from 10 to 32 million.Currently, the Apple Watch is available in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Great Britain and the United Sates.
