Won’t let me write my name
This app has a great concept and it’ll be wonderful when they get the bugs out. But it’s not useful to me right now because it’s very inaccurate. My name is Jonny, but it repeatedly spells out Jimmy, no matter how I try to adjust where I’m typing. I finally managed to type out “Jo” but when I tried to add the “n” it changed the “Jo” and spelled “kin.” Trying to type other words gives the same sort of problems, so it’s unfortunately not at all functional for me. Worked perfectly on the video review I watched, but not for me. I look forward to the update, and will revise my review if it starts working for me.

Great keyboard, but not useful yet.
I was amazed at how well the typing works and how easy it was to correct and edit words. As a keyboard, this app is the best for Apple Watch. As a useful tool, however, this app still needs some work. Replying to a message shouldn’t require opening the keyboard separately, it should be integrated into messages. There biggest problem I see though, is that you can only reply to individuals—there’s no functionality to send or reply to group messages which makes this app useless for me. If those two things were fixed, I’d rate this app 5 stars easily.

The idea of this app is great as many have stated: HOWEVER, the predictive text/auto-correct makes it very hard to use. The punctuation and Capitalization options don’t work as demonstrated in the videos and if you want to type in a name other than John and Jane you’re going to get frustrated really fast. I wish I could just type the letters i want to type without them automatically changing to what the app thinks I want to say.
