We’re really excited to announce that the AFL Live Official App for Apple Watch is now available!
The AFL Live Official App for Apple Watch allows users to quickly and easily check AFL match start times, live scores, match stats and the ladder.
The user experience (UX) approach for the Apple Watch is entirely different to smartphones and tablets. Users appreciate very short engagements that provide context specific information with minimal interaction. This means the app has to be designed with a shallow navigational hierarchy and smart logic to work out what information the user might want at any given moment.
The AFL Live Official App for Apple Watch is designed to be used on the go and at a glance. Users simply have to lift their wrist and swipe to view key features, rather than take their phone out and launch the app, before being able to access the information they want.
Danny Gorog, Director of Outware Mobile says ‘Apple Watch marks the start of the wearable computing revolution, and we’re proud and excited to have developed the only official AFL app for Apple Watch.’
Telstra and Outware Mobile began working together in 2011 on the AFL Live Official App to bring footy fans their favourite sport on smartphones and tablets. Since then, the app has been continuously upgraded and enhanced, making use of the latest technologies to deliver an award winning mobile sports entertainment experience. In 2014, this partnership delivered a revitalised mobile experience for Club Apps as well as the world’s first live sporting app for a wearable device in the AFL Live App for Pebble.
Our objective for these apps has always been to enhance the AFL experience by making it convenient and easy for fans to access their favourite sport wherever and whenever they want. The AFL Live Official App for Apple Watch now extends this great mobile experience to another level of convenience and engagement for fans of the sport.
AFL Live Official App for Apple Watch is now available on the App Store when you download the latest version of the AFL Live Official App for iPhone.
