The advent and rising popularity of smartwatches have often times thrown up a number of questions relating to the need for a smartwatch when there is a phone. But the Samsung Gear S3 is one smartwatch that is silencing such critics with its array of feature, and the flexibility and ease of the Tizen OS which it runs on. So too, app developers are coming out with interesting apps which would function on the Gear S3, providing users with useful apps that make the smartwatch a great companion. Yet another amazing app for the Gear S3 has been released on the Samsung Galaxy App Store named Hindi English Phrasebook.
The Hind English Phrasebook is the brainchild of Speak Up and the app was launched as the company’s first mobile app for Tizen smartphones almost two months ago. Fast forward to the present, the Hindi Phrasebook app quickly became very popular on the Tizen Store in the Travel and Education Categories.
The company has now revealed that it has been working on a new version which is targetted for smartwatches. Developing such an app for a smartwatch with a small display could be challenging when compared to the display size of a smartphone. Rightly, the company hinted that they found it challenging finding the best way to present the content of the phrasebook in a user-friendly manner but thankfully, they managed to do it. The app is also going to be the company’s first app for smart watches on the Tizen platform.
