Being Surprised by an Apple Watch App

20th December 2017

I was pleasantly surprised by an Apple Watch app yesterday! That’s certainly something that doesn’t happen often.

It’s an app called Field Day, and it’s just a really simple version of the sort of farming games you get on iOS, where you have to grow crops, wait for a period of time, grow more, etc.

But I was playing around with my watch yesterday, and I found the Field Day app installed. I had no idea what extra functionality could be achieved with such a thing.

Turns out, it’s the entire game!

And it’s completely playable.

But not just playable, it ran like an iPhone app, and (although simple) it was showing 3D graphical models.

My thoughts on what can be achieved on an Apple Watch have most certainly changed.
