Double Tap on my Apple Watch

Since Double Dap was announced I’ve wanted to use it on all my Apple Watch apps. Though it has some problems, namely that it has a lag and doesn’t respond as soon as I think it will, it’s a cool feature that I want to build a habit around. 

Because Apple is sometimes a bit slower to release public APIs on things, they’ve spent the last year allowing it on their own apps—and per WWDC’s announcement, plan to launch as a public API this Fall. I don’t know if the feature is actually good enough to really build into my way of using apps, but I’m intrigued to find out.

Most of my audio listening is done via Apple Music, Audible, and Overcast. That means 2 out of 3 of my top used apps on Apple Watch don’t benefit from Double Tap. I’m excited to see if I can actually use this feature.
