Awesome and unique, holds a lot of promise
This is the first of its kind app. Very, very ingenious. It pushes and defines a new boundary on how complications are used on watchOS. My favorite use so far has been to put the digital time on a watch face that is analog only. I’ve been testing, and the complication has stayed up to date. The only issue I have seen is that on my series 5, with the watch faced dimmed, the complication seems to update but is always 1 minute behind. I assume this is a result of when the dimmed face updates complications. Even so, digital time on any watch face that is within a minute or so of real-time is excellent for me. I’m looking forward to experimenting with the time-based complication swaps. I’m so used to switching between faces that I’m not sure if and how I’ll use that feature. David cares deeply about his apps, and I look forward to seeing how he can improve on this. I subscribed for a year without even thinking twice. After a year, I’ll re-assess. David is one of the few app developers I’d auto-subscribe to before demonstrating continued support for an app. I don’t know David personally, by the way. I’m just familiar with his prior apps and his podcast.
Not Quite Enough
I love the idea of having complications scheduled for certain times of day, and I admire what the developer has built here, but with what I can only assume are the limitations of WatchOS this app is extremely limited. The reviews are all glowing. MacStories says you can “create your own Apple Watch complications.” But in reality, there are a limited set of complications available that are mostly just different looking versions of built in complications such as weather, calendar, time, date, battery percentage, activity, and not much else. So if you want some slightly different versions of the basic built in complications, that’s great, but I’m not blown away by it. Like I said earlier, being able to schedule complications for certain times of day is cool, but I couldn’t even get that to work reliably. No matter how hard I tried it just wouldn’t show the complication I had scheduled. Others are complaining about the price, but $2/month isn’t bad to me if it worked reliably. Unfortunately with the limited complications available and the unreliability I cant recommend this app. Hopefully it improves over time and I can revisit it.
Shared calendar issue, weather issue, additional apps needed
Showing shared calendars that are hidden in the calendar app. It makes the calendar tool within the app bloated and not useful. I’m seeing my wife’s and my calendar at the same time. Something else killing the calendar complication = 24 timelines aren’t necessary for most people. For example, I only need to see 7am-7pm. Weather location stuck on LA. Yes, I’ve added a location in the app. Doesn’t update; even with a force sync or phone watch restart. The “how to” documentation needs help. I subscribed, but like other users, I need other apps added, otherwise it is very limited and defeating the entire purpose = I want one watchface that it use. I will pay for that, but not for 1/2 that. Adding AutoWake and AutoSleep would be a huge step in this direction.
This app has superbly innovative features. I love the ability to conditionally change the complications depending on time of day. I happily made the annual in-app upgrade to get the weather and tide feeds. Having an at a glance tide reference on my wrist is so helpful for boating in the shallow waters of the Chesapeake Bay. Kudos to the developer for an outstanding app and his responsiveness to a question I submitted.
Close but not perfect yet
One problem was that I had to reinstall a couple of times for the complication for the weather to update my location. It worked eventually but it seems like it needs work but it could be a watchOS bug. The other suggestion is for a HomeKit module. Take a look at HomeRun for a good simplistic UI/UX. I anticipate updating this rating to 5 stars soon.
A great concept where your complications can change on your watch at times you set during the day according to your needs. However it is very limited in what complications are available (not all your app complications are compatible) and most are locked anyway and require a subscription $2 a month or $20 a year. Not worth it right now but maybe down the road.
Very promising! Work week numbers?
The idea is very original and the app has a lot of potential for customization! Would it be possible to add also work week numbers to the options available?
Great App, Even Greater Potential Though!
Hello, I absolutely love this app and its capabilities! It is a very much needed third party addition to the device! So, so thankful to finally see something like this on the App Store! However, this has to be a solid 4 star rating because none of the corner complications are not curved text to match the rest of the watch face complications. It’s very distracting. A good example would be the digital time complication, it makes the text much smaller and harder to read. Please fix this if at all possible!! Thank you! Joshua
What I have been looking for.
If you, like me, find yourself frustrated by the rigidity of having to fit Apple’s complication model into your daily routine and needs, this is the solution. David is brilliant, this is brilliant as usual, and I’m grateful to have it.
I trust this is a nice app, so I’m giving it 4 Stars, but it is not easy to use. So un-user friendly that I have had it for a week and have not been able to use it
Best app ever for Watch
This is what we’ve needed for ages. I’m already addicted to the little activity dials. Looking forward to further development!
A Crummy Subscription?!
I’m done with the subscription model these software development companies are trying to force down our throats. If this app could turn water into wine, I’d subscribe. Short of that, I’m not interested. It’s a shame too. I was really excited about this product when I read about it on 9to5 Mac.
Weather paid? I was excited until saw this when setting up. Seems to me workouts or something else could be paid for if you must go that route. I get it. But, weather? Thanks, but no thanks.
Buy to Try
You have to buy to even try the full version. If you want to try a completely slimmed down version than you may want to try it. I read a review on a tech site but they didn’t see them mention the limited trial you get. Not worth it.
Not what I thought
Tired of subscriptions. Not entirely useful for the “free” version. I’m not willing to subscribe monthly to a complication selector that I can do myself for free with little effort by hard pressing on the watch face. Now if this allowed you to create your own complications then that would be cool. But I don’t see that. :/
