The Globe and Mail To Showcase New Apple Watch App at FITC Toronto

FITC attendees will be the first to see The Globe and Mail’s new Apple Watch app, developed by TWG. The app will be presented as part of an interactive wearable technology showcase, curated by We Are Wearables.

The Globe and Mail will be one of the first news organizations with an app on the new Apple Watch. Acting as a cousin to the Globe’s iOS application, its role is to provide instantly accessible news hits and drive users to other platforms for a deeper, richer content experience. The app will be available in the Apple Watch App Store on April 24, when the Apple Watch launches to the public.

FITC attendees will be able to see a live demo of the application, showcased via Apple’s iOS simulator, and chat with the team from The Globe and Mail and TWG that created the app.
