We still don’t know when the Apple Watch will launch or exactly how third-party apps will work on the device, but that won’t stop eager graphic designers from attempting to show us just how gorgeous third-party apps might be on Apple’s first wearable computer. Mobile app design house Thinkapps recently decided to have a few of its talented designers dream up visualizations of some of the world’s most popular third-party apps and slap them on mockups of the Apple Watch. The result, as you might expect, is a set of images that might make Apple fans hungrier than ever for Apple’s upcoming smartwatch.
