Apple Watch & iOS 8 App Icon Template 3.0
Jan 29, 2015, 7:51 AM
This week I had my first stab at designing an app for the Apple Watch. It became apparent quite quickly that you need to have the hardware frame around what you’re designing, otherwise you just cannot relate to that black rectangle. This...
