Instagram removes its Apple Watch app
If you use to check your photos from your Instagram profile on your wrist, you will no longer be able to do so. Instagram quietly removed its app for Apple Watch, becoming one more company to do that. In fact, the social network does not have much choice, since April 1, Apple, stopped accepting updates for apps that were not made directly to the device but worked through the phone.
So Instagram had to either update its software or drop it entirely. But this is not going to be a big loss, because even if you was watching the photos on a miniature screen, the Instagram’s Apple Watch version was lagging behind. It can’t play video or show direct messages, nor does it work with Apple’s latest generation LTE connection.
Nevertheless, Apple’s mobile device is not in trouble. Recently, CEO Tim Cook said the latest version was more than double of sells from that of its predecessor a year ago. Rather, Instagram is likely joining Slack, Twitter and others in rethinking the need for a smartwatch app in the first place.
While some mobile apps clearly benefit from watch versions (such as mass transit and weather clients), many others are largely superfluous. Think of this as the smartwatch app industry growing up, with companies now creating wrist-based apps only when they make sense. Post from: GizBrain.
