Wondering why anyone would bother buying an Apple Watch? Well today Adobe has updated three of its Creative Cloud apps in an attempt to answer that question for creatives and designers.
The Behance, Adobe Color CC, and Creative Cloud apps have been gifted new functionality to "stretch the mobile canvas and inspire creatives" with Apple Watches, as Adobe puts it. (See the best Apple Watch apps for more app recommendations.)
Here's what they can now do...
The new release of Behance app for iPhone promises to make interaction with critical updates frictionless, bringing your Inbox, Notifications, My Work, and Nearby directly to your Apple Watch.
Remotely control Airplay presentations of your online portfolio from your watch to open a Behance project and step through the individual images of a project presentation.
Use Handoff to move seamlessly from your Apple Watch to your iPhone when you want to comment on a file or project; use the share dialog to post a link to Facebook, Twitter and other services.
02. Color CC
Seeking to choose a colour scheme? Pair Adobe's Color CC app with the Apple Watch and you can turn on geolocation to reveal colour themes that were captured nearby. This app now enables you to view the theme, name, distance, and map location of each colour theme.
03. Creative Cloud
You may have spotted the latest update for Creative Cloud app for iPhone on the Apple Watch TV commercial. It means you can set up your Apple Watch to monitor activity on shared Creative Cloud files, view and reply to comments on a file, accept or decline invitations to collaborate, and more.
