Independent watchOS Apps

Speaking of watchOS apps, it looks like developing a full fledged application running entirely on watchOS is not yet possible: there is no networking to speak of on watchOS. 😔

If you need anything beyond basic HTTP or CloudKit, the only option is to use WatchConnectivity framework to funnel all networking through the extension running on the iPhone. 😢

The only hope is that it will be added in the future.
