Most also agree that the current apps, such as they are, need a lot of work. Aside from Apple's own first party offerings, like Weather, Photos, and Maps, apps are constrained to simple interactions. Beyond simply relaying notifications from your smartphone, such as when you get a new message on Facebook or there's a breaking news story from CNN, the watch's apps can either provide slightly more in-depth offerings called Glances (essentially widgets that provide quick "at-a-glance" information such as current weather conditions or a stock price) or offer more feature-heavy companion apps. But those, such as the ones from Uber or American Airlines, still rely on the companion app running on your iPhone, rather than by working natively on the Watch. According to The Verge's Nilay Patel, many of those Glances and feature-heavy apps suffer from slow speeds when loading data, especially when trying to determine your location.
