The period of euphoria that accompanied the exit smart watch from Apple, and ended, as it has always observed in such situations, was replaced by bitter hangover. We have already talked about how sales have plummeted Apple Watch in recent months, but this is not the most serious problem faced by the company from Cupertino. After users dissatisfied term hours of battery life, high price and lack broad functionality, and their claims were of developers.

edition The New York Times over the weekend published a detailed material, which has enabled the creators of applications to talk about why they are not eager to conquer our wrists. Reporters noted that 15 of the 20 most popular applications for the iPhone still has not got versions for Apple Watch.

Some of these programs includes the Facebook , which today has more than a billion users. Developer Adam Mosseri in an interview admitted that the social network is exploring opportunities related to Apple Watch, but can not find an effective way to bring the functionality of your application on the wrist.

«I’m not sure if we can make an application to bring joy and well run – he said. – At the moment, you will inevitably have to at some point get out of the pocket phone »

A similar position was voiced by Evan Spiegel of Snapchat, who complains that his application is noticeably lose functionality after transfer on a tiny screen.
