Current users of ETA iOS app can get to enjoy new features of the app now that it has been fully optimized for an ETA Watch counterpart. Considering that this iOS app does not come as a free download, the upgrade will be a big help for the users who have been trying to make the best out of the money they spent in downloading the app. Thanks to its developer, Eastwood, an ETA Watch counterpart will soon be available for users to enjoy.
If you haven’t heard of ETA iOS app in the past, it is a GPS-based app that serves as a personal driving assistant. Thanks to its intelligent algorithm, the app is able to calculate driving directions and travel times so you have an idea on how long it will take you to reach your destination. This is particularly important if you are new to a city and you are meeting someone important for a meeting. With the app, you’ll be able to give a somewhat accurate calculation of when you will be arriving.
The upgrade to the iOS app will provide basically the same functionality to the Apple Watch as the iOS app version. The biggest difference, however, is that there will be a smaller screen available on the Apple Watch as users get basic information such as driving directions and travel times. By simply raising your wrist, you can already get an idea of these information as supplied by the ETA app.
Considering there is a set of guidelines that third-party Watch developers need to honor, the ETA app for Apple Watch will display available locations through a scrollable list. This will give its users a quick overview of information for both travel and estimate time of arrival. Using the list, users simply have to tap on a location so they can get a more detailed look. Additionally, turn-by-turn directions have also been integrated onto the app from Apple Watch Maps.
As soon as the Apple Watch becomes available, the update for ETA compatibility for Apple Watch will become available as well. It will be a free update for existing owners of ETA iOS app. If you haven’t downloaded ETA iOS app, you may purchase it for $0.99 from the App Store. The app is compatible with select devices running on iOS 7.0.
