It seems companies can’t just watch when it’s Apple Watch launch day.
Since our initial GeekWire round-up of Seattle-area Apple Watch apps, at least a half-dozen more firms have raised their hands to show an Apple-branded wristband.
Zulily, for example, lets new smartwatch owners scroll through sales and tap ones to save for later.
Chris Lynch’s SparkWord was released, promising to let you “blow up words, steal points and spark your way to victory” in a new wrist-friendly word game.
Also in the fun-ways-to-interact-with-a-wrist category, we’re hearing that Puzzazz, the puzzle technology company, has a unique Apple Watch app that will be released soon.
Bellevue, Wash. startup Prism released its eponymous personal finance app for managing bills from the iPhone and Apple Watch.
Groundspeak announced an update to its Geocaching app focused on basic navigation functionality, like the always-helpful compass, and showing the closest geocache to the user.
And in the dark of night, Amazon released its voice-searching, one-tap-buying Amazon App. (Read “Amazon’s Apple Watch shopping app arrives with voice search, one-tap buying” for details.)
They join Starbucks, Microsoft, Alaska Airlines, Breaking News, Comcast, Estately, Expedia, Fifth Star Labs, Omni Group, Redfin, Trulia and Zillow — and presumably, many more not listed.
