    Impressive from a prototyping standpoint, but I can't imagine the UX of this kind of interface being good at all in practice. To me, this feels like 52 card pickup: a big ol' mess of icons you have to sift through to find what you're looking for.

    Better yet: go check out the github repo here to play with it on-device: https://github.com/lmmenge/WatchSpringboard-Prototype

    Looks pretty cool, and works smooth as hell. I can really see this working, even from a UX point of view. Imagine having a universe of apps, where you can pull apps of of a group and create their own. Then you'd have small planetary systems that stay in a certain spot. This in conjunction with spotlight would totally do it for me!

    This is so interesting, I wonder what it would feel like if you could have some kind of interaction to switch between running apps and all apps, or some other filtering methods to help you navigate around. Would also be cool to place a folder view, would start to get really interesting as you drill in and out.

    Imagine if siri (search) "attracted" contextually relevant apps to the middle of the screen over time or based on frequency of use. you could apply this kind of "gravity" to apps that are used together most frequently, and then the UI would organize itself!

      As a counter to your idea it would also be interesting to group apps into quadrants, so that you have all your games in one quadrant, social media apps in another so that you start creating muscle memory to go scroll to certain quadrants. Within each quadrant though the more popular apps could be closer to the center. Really interesting.
