Developers want Apple Watch to run apps independently

Via Business Insider, Realm, a mobile data base company used by 100,000 app developers, is noting that developers are losing interest in the Apple Watch.

“On a weekly basis we’re seeing very few Watch apps, compared to iOS apps,” says VP Tim Anglade. “For every 1,000 new iOS apps being built, there are 10 tvOS apps and maybe 1 Watch app” …

Anglade notes that, similar to the introduction to Apple Watch, tvOS is getting a ‘gold rush’ of apps. He believes that we will continue to see this lull in Watch apps until apps can run independently from the iPhone.

Most agree that the Apple Watch in its current state is slow, and that its main purposes are Apple Pay, notifications, and fitness tracking.
