Developing Custom Apple Watch Apps: A Hanson Demo

You already know that the Apple Watch is Apple’s entry into the blossoming smartwatch and wearable category. It works like this: the computer-on-your-wrist has a symbiotic relationship with your iPhone. Health data read from the watch sensors flows to your phone’s activity tracker. Incoming notifications for apps on your phone are routed to your watch, where a click glance removes the need to pull the phone from your pocket.

How do you create custom watch apps that enhance existing iPhone apps? Let’s walk through the process.

What Does Being a “Top Workplace” Mean to Us?

As you may have heard, Hanson was recently named to The Blade’s Top Workplaces (for the second year in a row).

What We Know Now: Connie Calmes

We’re always eager to learn something new here at Hanson, which is why one of our core values is “stay curious.” Because of this mantra, we’ve held an ongoing series talking to fellow Hansonites about the words of wisdom they might today give to their past selves. Today we’re talking to Senior Account Manager Connie Calmes.

Exploring an Empty TMA

Late last year, Visual Designer Ben Morales was among a handful of the region’s top mobile photographers to be invited to participate in The Toledo Museum of Art’s Exploring an #emptyTMA event, an opportunity to explore this world-class museum on a day that it was closed to the public. All of us at Hanson thought this was pretty cool because not only is the museum one of our client partners, but Ben is a very talented photographer. I recently talked to Ben about what he got out of this exclusive experience.
