Swatch began as an aimless design exercise - messing around with a few layout ideas without having any goal in mind. It soon developed into an all-absorbing project, with a prototype and then full application following quickly.
The entire app is written with web technologies, but it’s optimised to feel and react as if it were native app. Check it out on the app store and tell me if you agree. Below are some screenshots from the project, as well as the app’s features.
