Major apps abandoning Apple Watch


In the last few weeks, the latest update for Google Maps on iOS ditched support for the Apple Watch. Its removal was not mentioned in the release notes, and Google has not indicated whether support for watchOS will be reinstated.

It’s the same story with Amazon and eBay, both of which previously included Apple Watch support in their iOS apps. Both were updated in late April, and as of Monday, neither includes an Apple Watch app… More at Apple Insider.

Not really surprising. Ever tried using any of those apps on your Apple Watch?

The same applies to Instagram and almost every other third party Apple Watch app. I love my Apple Watch, but can see that there are very few cases where third party apps offer anything useful.
