Wunderlist's head of design, Ben Lehnert, has gone into detail about how the company designed its app for the Apple Watch.
Not wanting to try and fit everything from the desktop and mobile apps onto the Apple Watch, the Wunderlist team decided to only implement those features that were extremely relevant to users. The goal is to quickly get users to where they need to be, according to Lehnert on the Wunderlist blog:
We designed the Home View in a unique way that gives you access to the most important things first. You can quickly jump to your Inbox, your agenda for Today, and important to-dos that are assigned to you. Those four buttons give you a bird's eye view of everything you need and want to do. And in case you want to jump to a specific list, simply use the Digital Crown and scroll through all your lists.
Wunderlist is one of many apps that has been updated with support for the Apple Watch, and will be available for watch owners to use when the device hits stores in first-wave launch countries on April 24.
