Alpha Software intends to release a product for quickly building small apps for the Apple Watch called Alpha WatchBench. WatchBench will be free and runs entirely on the iPhone; no external computer is needed. The tool was created by Alpha Software’s CTO, a man you know of but might not know by name. Dan Bricklin, who created WatchBench, is also the inventor of the first spreadsheet software called VisiCalc in 1979.
