Track Your Cat’s Eating Habits With Some Cardboard And A Spare Android Phone

Screen Shot 2015-09-21 at 5.06.55 PM My favorite thing about Disrupt is that you never know what you’re going to find in the Startup Alley. I walked through the Taiwan Pavilion and found a company called CatFi. They make a product called CatFi Box that uses 3D facial recognition to track how much your cats are eating. If you have more than one cat, you’re going to love this one. Say you have 5 cats, one of them is… Read More

Developer hacks Apple Watch to support custom watch faces

apple-watch-apps

Well respected developer Hazma Sood, who earlier this month helped us discover hints at an upcoming more powerful iPad mini, today has shared his latest tweak: the ability to use custom watch faces on Apple Watch. Sood posted a video to Twitter, which can be seen below, showing two custom watch faces running on his stainless steel Apple Watch.

Sood has shred the source code that he used to create the custom watch faces to GitHub. For those curious, Sood’s Apple Watch is running the watchOS 2.0 beta. The developer was able to completely integrate his custom watch faces into watchOS, allowing them to be seamlessly chosen from the first-party interface. Sood’s tweak also takes advantage of the Digital Crown, allowing him to change the color of the watch face by moving the crown, similar to how many of Apple’s own watch faces work.

The lack of support for custom watch faces on Apple Watch has been one of the long running complaints regarding the device since its launch earlier this year. It’s unclear at this point if Apple has any plans to support such a feature down the line. watchOS 2 adds several new first-party watch faces, but still lacks support for faces developed by third-parties. Earlier this year, developers also hacked Apple Watch to run UIKit apps on watchOS 1.0.
