Imagining CloudMagic for Apple Watch


Apple’s most personal device yet, Apple Watch has notifications as a core feature. CloudMagic is known for its instant push notifications for all email services. This makes CloudMagic and Apple Watch the perfect match. The ability to instantly see the new emails by simply raising your wrist sounds fantastic. Isn’t it?

So, when we sat down to design CloudMagic for Apple Watch, we were quite clear that the experience should primarily be an extension to the new email notifications on the watch without having to pull the phone out of your pockets. The task flow we thought of was this…

User receives a new email notification on the Apple Watch > Taps on it to read the email > Does a short reply > Take a quick action like star, mark as unread or delete > Look at other unread emails

This helped us take the early decision that our WatchKit app would only deal with unread emails.

New email notification and the WatchKit app

The WatchKit app has the same sequence of screens and content as the iPhone app but they are presented in a way that works best on the Watch’s screen – super minimal and glanceable. Unlike the iPhone app, the WatchKit app’s screens have a dark theme to be inline with the Watch’s overall color theme. After reading the email tapping on the reply button gives a list of quick template replies or the ability to dictate whatever you have in mind. Force Touch on the message screen shows the quick action buttons.

Glance

Other than the timely notification there is one more important entry point to the WatchKit app – the Glance. The Glance is a snapshot of an app’s status at any given point of time, accessed by swiping up from the bottom of the Watch Face. We designed the Glance like a dashboard that shows the total number of unread emails as a big number on the header and the bottom part showing the people whose emails you haven’t read yet.

Designing for Apple Watch made us think how to make emailing even more lightweight than our already minimalist iPhone experience. It’s interesting to think how we dealt with the possibilities and limitations to come up with the most optimum emailing experience on the Watch. We know it’s not perfect, but we’ll never stop trying to make it perfect. That’s a promise.

Today, we’re excited to introduce CloudMagic for Apple Watch to you and we look forward to hearing your feedback.
