I was wondering if the iOS Stack Exchange app was planning to add Apple Watch functionalities, or what's going on in that regard. I haven't seen anything about this, so I thought I'd open a question where some info may come to light.
Note that I'm not fully expecting anything concrete to be going on, however any ideas, information, etc. could be brought up and discussed here.
These functionalities could range anywhere from viewing questions to perhaps writing comments (answers might be too long and difficult to write from the watch, although it's possible for basic answers). Additionally, a handy capability would be to view "Favorite Questions" and your own questions from the watch, as you could view answers and comments on the go and not necessarily need to check your phone or computer. You could then view the comments and answers while deciding if it's necessary that you check the question immediately. Also, you could periodically check questions you've favorited (that need an answer) for an answer. These features would be more or less helpful depending on which site you're using.
Why it might not work
Of course, there are probably some reasons as to why this couldn't work/isn't worth prioritizing. The best I could think of would be the fact that answers could not be written well, formatting would be difficult on the much smaller screen, and maybe the heavy workload of loading all the information onto the watch.
Obviously this isn't too important, as most people don't have the Apple Watch, but I'm rather curious to know if there's a reason why it hasn't happened, there are plans for it in the future, or if it's just not a priority yet.
Feel free to share your opinion and/or correct me if I'm missing something completely obvious.
