Next generation messaging for wearables

Next generation messaging for wearables

Our upcoming Apple Watch app Cufflink, is being called a top 20 app and "Slack for your personal life", by Business Insider :) Apple’s approach to smartwatch communication: * It’s broad network (receive from anyone) * It’s has limited NLP “smart replies” * It mostly relies on dictation Our approach is different. Cufflink provides instant discreet communication with a limited number of people (those who really matter), through pre-defined topics with Templates for Communication and Actions. For example, your wife might send you a message "Can you call the contractor today?" and tag it as a to-do. Your options are “OK” and ”Sorry, I can’t”. Tap “OK” and a reply is sent to your wife, the item is added to your to-do list and you receive automatic reminders. Why this approach? * Notifications on your wrist are VERY PERSONAL * Smartwatch interactions need to be 5 seconds max * Dictation is slow and inappropriate for most circumstances * Our prior apps show that Templates work
