Good Technology™ is now available as a native application for Apple Watch™ devices. Good Work for Apple Watch delivers the convenience and productivity enterprise users need right from their wrists, while giving IT the control to manage this new breed of devices. The app is available immediately in the iTunes app store.
Good Work for Apple Watch builds on the already supported email and calendar notifications to now deliver a rich app experience. The new capabilities include glances for new/unread email count and details on an upcoming meeting. Within the app, users can read emails on the watch and take actions, such as delete, flag or mark read/unread using the force press gesture. They can also scroll through their meetings for the day with a more detailed view that includes the organizer’s picture and any meeting notes.
“Enabling enterprise mobility means securing data accessed and used on all devices, whether smartphones, tablets or wearables,” said Christy Wyatt, chairman and CEO of Good Technology. “The Good Work app for Apple Watch extends our leadership in wearables, allowing greater productivity for employees while also providing complete policy controls for IT.”
With this new app, Good is updating policy controls in the Good Dynamics® Secure Mobility Platform for IT to be able to customize “wear-your-own-device” programs based on the level of security that’s right for their organization. IT administrators can easily enable/disable notifications and the Good Work watch app via a simple web based management console. For organizations that implement mobile device management (MDM) policies on devices, Good also supports the new Apple Watch wrist detection restriction.
