If you compare the number of Watch Apps in Apple’s Appstore and Google’s playstore, there is a huge difference in numbers with Google being way ahead of Apple. It is because Apple believes in quality rather than quantity.
Apple’s App collection is full of great quality apps. Considering the fact that for the smartwatches, developers have to develop special apps keeping some factors in mind such as the screen size. Yet, you will find more than 19000 Apps for Apple watches in the App store.
Here, we have compiled a list of must have Apple Watch Apps in 2019.
Shazam is a great app for Apple watches. It is one of the World’s leading music and TV recognition Apps.
