Instagram and Apple Watch: a match made in heaven



The first wave of Apple Watch apps will probably be pretty limited in functionality, but even with the WatchKit restrictions Apple has in place, the design gurus at JBS Labs have created an Instagram for Apple Watch concept that we can’t wait get on our wrists.

The Hungary-based design firm pared down the Instagram UI to just the bare essentials. No, you can’t upload pictures or comment on your friends’ latte photos, but the simplified app does let you view and like pictures, as well as read comments and find new people to follow.

Check it out:


Tapping on a Grammer’s avatar brings up their account info so you can follow or check out their past posts and followers count. The team also dreamed up a way for Instagram to take advantage of the Apple Watch’s new short-look and long-look notifications. A short look would bring up an overview of Instagram notifications, and the long look would be used to provide a list of total comments, likes and new followers.

Photos display at the maximum size possible, but you can look at post details by tapping once. To keep the page from being too busy, the only other information displayed is user names and avatars. You can see a list of likes and the comments by tapping a picture once and then tapping the total likes or comments.
