Unless you\u2019re Pharrell Williams or Tim Cook, you\u2019ll have to wait until April 24 (or later) to wrap an Apple smartwatch around your wrist. But many developers have already released updates to their iOS apps with support for Apple Watch. Here are three such apps specifically designed for productivity geeks. It\u2019s worth checking them out now, so you\u2019ll be ready to go when your watch arrives.\n[ Related: 16 awesome accessories for your new Apple Watch ]\nIFTTT\u2019s Do Button and Do Note\nThe \u2018Do\u2019 apps, released in February for Android and iOS (free), let you manually instigate an action by tapping a button. Example: Within the Do Button iOS app, you press a big button to \u2018Get yourself out of an awkward situation\u2019 (the recipe\u2019s actual name.) Using this recipe, the app calls your iPhone and plays a pre-recorded message. As you listen, you can nod your head, look concerned, and tell the person you\u2019re hoping to ditch that you\u2019ve got to go, something\u2019s come up.\n\nYou can have up to three \u2018Do\u2019 Button or Note recipes active at any given time. All three can also be set up as Today screen widgets, making them even easier to access.\nWith the latest Do Button and Do Note updates, the apps will also be accessible on your Apple Watch. Need to dictate a quick email reminder to yourself? Create a message in Evernote? Do it from your wrist. (The new Do apps will also support iPads, by the way.)\nI\u2019m an IFTTT fan, and I like Do Button and Do Note, though I wish you could have more than three preset actions available at any given time.\nWorkflow\nWorkflow, a $3 app for iOS, is similar to IFTTT, except that its workflows include more steps and, as a result, are a bit more complicated. They\u2019re also pretty cool, once you get the hang of them.\nExample: I take a lot of screenshots of apps on my iPhone. Workflow includes an \u2018Upload Screenshots\u2019 workflow that, when I double-tap its icon, will automatically upload screenshots to my Dropbox account and, if I want, delete them from my iPhone afterwards. That feature alone saves me multiple steps. Alternatively, I could use the \u2018AirDrop Screenshot\u2019 workflow to send screenshots directly to my Mac. There\u2019s also a cool \u2018Make GIF\u2019 workflow, just for the heck of it. And you can save any of your workflows to your home screen.\nOn an Apple Watch, you\u2019ll be able to tap to access your own workflows or choose one from among the gallery of prebuilt workflows. This could save you some time. For instance, though Uber has announced Apple Watch support in its iOS app, Workflow includes an \u2018Uber to Next Event\u2019 workflow. When you activate the workflow, it will automatically plug in your destination (if it\u2019s in your calendar appointment), tell Uber your current location, and specify which type of Uber service you want. All that, without taking out your iPhone.\nWe\u2019ll soon see if these apps are true time-savers when used on an Apple Watch, or if they\u2019re just a distraction, or\u2014this is probably the most likely scenario\u2014both.
