I’m starting this topic so we can discuss the latest Galaxy Store update, which will remove “Watch” section from the main bottom menu.
My main concerns:
- The new Store has only “Games” and “Apps” in the bottom menu.
- When you tap the “Apps”, once again you can’t see the “Watch” category, it requires sliding the top menu to reveal it.
- When you finally find the “Watch” menu, it’s hard to get to the top charts
- The main top chart no longer exist - it is instead broken up into each of the watchface categories, requiring even more tapping, browsing and sliding through the Store to find content.
This version of the Store layout is not visible yet in all countries, so currently most developers are not aware of these changes and are not seeing the effects in terms of downloads and sales.
But if this does in fact go live globally, it will mean that the wathcfaces are burried deep within the Store submenus. I am seriously worried this will have a negative effect across the board, for all developers and for everyone’s sales.
I’m asking watchface developers to join in the discussion so we can hopefully influence a change before this becomes permanent.
