Last Week’s Listener Feedback Question

  • What would Apple have to do to sell you an “iWatch” on Day 1?

  • Tweets:

    • @Rockerchick tweets: @clayrussell @iOSDocked it would have to be a sexy piece of tech that didn't look like a watch and did a lot more than my phone can.

    • @Rockerchick tweets: @clayrussell @iOSDocked Unicorns. Apple has to manifest unicorns for me to buy an iWatch 😆

    • @Rockerchick tweets: @clayrussell @iOSDocked  The remote app to control my AppleTV & ability to read my pulse/Ox level and vibrate to wake me if it's too low.

    • @WPT_Bill tweets: @iOSDocked Can’t remember the last time I wore a watch. Haven’t heard any rumors making me want an iWatch either poop

    • @ifthefacef1tz tweets: @clayrussell @iOSDocked don’t call it an iWatch for starters!! #Fashionable #longbatterylife

This Week’s Roundtable/Listener Feedback Question

Fleksy's Predictive Touch Keyboard with Gestures Now Available to All iOS Developers

The question is this. Is this the start of a 3rd party keyboard movement on iOS? Will Apple open up new API’s to support 3rd party virtual keyboards? Or will this all end up going nowhere?
