More Apps We'd Like to See on macOS Sierra
Health, an app specially designed for recording health and fitness data on iOS and WatchOS (Apple Watch), is suggested to launch it to macOS Sierra as an all-rounded tool for health stats accessing.

Clock is the most used app on iOS devices featuring Alarm, Stopwatch and Timer. It is quite great if it can be nailed on macOS Sierra to remind us of time for meeting, appointment and more, as well as counting how many seconds/minutes/hours exactly to do something.

We also hope to have a professional music app on macOS Sierra with a tight combination with Apple Music in that iTunes' large library for media contain too many contents and a dedicated music app seems to be essential.
