Some preliminary sketches for a new watch-face (favorites) smart auto layout I’ll call “split”. It’s designed
►to work with the digital clock (single line / transparent bg)
►dynamic bubble arrangement based on number of bubbles assigned to favorites
►layout will adapt to square, circular and flat tire screens
You can already do this manually using the Layout Designer, but a smart auto layout would make it much more flexible, convenient and precise.
►keep the time in the center or slightly above center (allows for largest digits on round watches)
►uniform bubble sizes above and below (but the two groups can differ)
►Fit more bubbles by using the “diagonal” layout
►Margin and bubble spacing applies
►As with all other smart-auto-layouts, it can be tweaked using the drag-n-drop Layout Designer…
I plan to supply extra font packages for the digits. I am still thinking about pricing.
►a collection of several simple fonts can be packaged together for a minimal price ($0.99),
►more elaborate (colorful / styled) digits (including background texture?) might be charged for each
This, with the new AW2.0 standard “complication bubbles” could turn Bubble Clouds into a pretty versatile watch-face option, competitive with other watch-face engines, but with the added utility of the app drawer.
