Apple Watch App Store

If you’re running iOS 8.2 or iOS 8.3, you can view the Apple Watch App Store right now. Simply open up the Apple Watch app on your iPhone, and tap the App Store tab. If you don’t yet see the App Store interface, you can use our refresh trick to reload the interface to view the Apple Watch App Store.

Just how many Apple Watch apps are there? 3051 as of this post, with more on the way:

3000 Plus Apple Watch Apps

The Apple Watch App Store is basically the normal App Store with an Apple Watch spin. Apple Watch app screenshots and icons are prominently displayed, with iPhone screenshots being displayed underneath. It’s basically the reverse of the standard App Store.

Since there are no standalone Apple Watch apps, all of the apps downloaded from the Apple Watch App Store are iPhone apps with Apple Watch support. Hence, if you’ve already purchased a particular iPhone app, that app will be available for download free of charge.

The Apple Watch App Store is a way for people to easily discover apps that feature Apple Watch apps; It filters out any app that doesn’t. Again, the Apple Watch App Store is accessible via the Apple Watch app on devices running iOS 8.2 or iOS 8.3.

    Not many apps?

    • tons. 3,000~

      • Jamessmooth

        That’s one of the things I actually liked about this launch. Apple made sure there’d be tons and tons of apps readily available to folks when they get their watches.

        Unlike Android Wear *cough*

      • George

        What’s the point when all the reviewers said 3rd party apps are terribly slow.

      • Jamessmooth

        Because according to Apple, the review units ran slow. Should be fixed by launch tomorrow.

      • George

        We will see I guess.

    • It just shows some apps Apple decided to promote.
      Search for “Apple Watch” on regular App Store app and you will find over 3000 aps 😉

  • hkgsulphate

  • Noohar

  • Ken Love

    I just updated to 8.3 to be watch ready for tomorrow… OMG what have I done, 5 minutes in and I am already missing my JailBreak. The phone seems so slow and it is just not the same. I hope the watch is worth it and I hope that there is a new JB just days away!!!

    • Martynet

      “The phone seems so slow ” ?
      You must be doing something wrong. Phone should be much faster after the restore…

      • wiety

        well i guess it was maybe meant that on JB phone you are able to speed up the animations of the UI and phone in general. I have such tweaks and when i get hands on a non JB phone, it feels like everything takes forever :))))

      • Martynet

        I have the animations off on my iPhone without jailbreak

      • wiety

        that might be true, but i said speed up, not turn off 🙂 just imagine how does it look like now when you activate the switcher, or go through settings app or whatever, and speed that up several times and you get the effect im talking about 🙂

      • Ken Love

        Yes, I had tweaks to speed up the UI, it made it very snappy and quick, without the JB it just feels slow.

  • Piyush

    There is no gap between watch screenshots when you see them in full screen.

  • Dante Arellano

    Fuckk 3 moths with the same shitte of apple wactch

  • Alexander Sundiev

    Vey impressive! Can’t wait till June.

    • Victor Molina

      Same here. Lmao

  • Joseph A. Ahmad

    Awesome stuff. Oh, and in regards to shipping, I’m actually expecting mine sooner than I thought. I was supposed to be getting my Apple Watch between May 14th – May 28th, but I’m actually getting it tomorrow… talking about over delivering! I chose a 38 mm which doesn’t look to be as popular as the 42 mm, but hey, I don’t have diesel wrists so I suppose it’s all relative to what fits your best. Hopefully some of you folks on here will get yours sooner than expected, too.

  • -= J$@ =-

    Goodbye jailbreak, I’ll b wearing my watch in 5 hours…according to the delivery tracker & I can’t wait!!! 8 D

  • Alberto Espinal

    Android wear is a joke together with all the crap watches they release to beat the  watch, Samsung and Google “ is making a watch ok lets beat them to the punch lets make one ourselves before they came out with theirs so we can say we were first, ok ok lets do that! But wait a minute we never thought about the apps uuupss!!!

    • Mr. Right

      You buy a $1000 phone and a $400 watch so you can do everything on a small screen? The watch will be good for 1 month then people will get tried of it because it doesn’t offer anything new that the iPhone already does.

  • Samir

    Just about 3,500 Watch apps and counting.
