Apple watch feature demo: Using the Now Playing glance to control BlindSquare GPS app automated menus on the iPhone.

In this demo, I show you how to use the Now Playing Glance to control the BlindSquare GPs app running on your iPhone.  Simply press the Play/Pause button in the Now Playing glance to start the automated menus, and press again to make your selection.  I also discovered if you press the Previous button in the Now Playing glance, this will give your current location without going through the automated menus.  If you have being using the Now Playing glance and your watch locks, pressing the digital crown will return you to this glance: if not two finger flick up from the clock face screen will return to the current glance, if its not the Now Playing glance, just two finger flick left or right to locate the Now Playing glance and off you go.  In the demo, I put BlindSquare GPs to sleep via the automated menus, to wake it up again, just press the Play/Pause button in the Now Playing glance to take BlindSquare GPs out of sleep mode, and your fine to use the automated menus again.  The Music app on the Apple watch will not control BlindSquare GPS, it is only Now Playing glance that actually works its magic.

In this demo, I give you a bit of a taste of what it is like to use Siri on the Apple watch either using "Hay Siri" or holding in the Digital Crown, waiting for the vibration, speaking command, receiving a conformation vibration, and then listening to the response back from Siri via VoiceOver.  In this demo I demo asking for a country time, making a phone call, sending a voice message, using the Timer, open the Settings folder and an application, and asking Siri to tell me a joke.

How to come out of power reserve mode on the Apple watch without being able to use VoiceOver

In this demo, I show you how to enter power reserve mode on the Apple watch (from Side/Friends button held in for 2 seconds) or from the Settings glance.  As power reserve only displays the time, no other functions are running on the Apple watch: including VoiceOver.  So with the assistance of the light detector app running on my iPhone 6 plus, I show you what  happens when you press the side/friends button in. The light detecter emits a higher pitch as the time appears on the top right hand side of the screen and then goes away after a second or two. If you hold the side/friends button in for 4 seconds, again with the assistance of the light detector,the  Apple logo lights up in the middle of the screen, stays on, and the Apple watch is restarting back to the clock face, full functionality, and of course VoiceOver.

This demo was more for myself as a bit of a record before seeing the Apple watch itself and how access will have moved on with VoiceOver.
