Add a fully functional keyboard to your Apple Watch with Shift Keyboard. * As featured on 9to5Mac, Cult of Mac, AppAdvice & iPhon.fr * Typing messages on your Apple Watch can be chore - Scribble doesn't always work and Voice Dictation isn't great in public spaces. What’s wrong with using a traditional keyboard? By adding a full QWERTY, AZERTY or QWERTZ keyboard to your Apple Watch, you can easily reply to your iMessages quickly and privately. Shift Keyboard contains these great features: FULL KEYBOARD Add a full QWERTY, AZERTY or QWERTZ keyboard to your Apple Watch. Keys are easy to press and there’s support for key previews as you swipe along the keyboard. SWIPE KEYBOARD The first swipe-to-type Apple Watch keyboard is now in Shift Keyboard! Haptic feedback will confirm you’ve entered a character and you can use the Digital Crown to scroll through possible words. It’s available in QWERTY, AZERTY or QWERTZ layouts too. PRECISE KEYBOARD If you’re finding the other keyboard layouts too difficult to use, you can switch to the Precise layout instead. Available in Alphabetical, QWERTY, AZERTY or QWERTZ layouts, you can scroll through a larger set of keys for maximum precision. SUGGESTIONS As you’re typing, you can complete words using the Suggestions bar above the keys. Tap on a suggestion to replace the current typed word with the full suggestion. Great for improving speed on the small screen! Access all suggestions by tapping the ellipsis icon next to the first two suggestions. CORRECTION Whilst typing, if you make a mistake, Shift Keyboard will automatically replace the incorrect word with one it thinks is correct. If it guesses wrong, just turn the Digital Crown to select another one - or your original typed text. OTHER CHARACTERS Shift Keyboard has full support for adding symbols, numbers and other special characters. EMOJI Unlike the built-in Messages app, Shift Keyboard supports adding an unlimited amount of emoji to a single message! Simply select the emoji you’d like to add from the emoji picker and it’ll be appended to your message. Your top 10 most recent emoji will even be suggested the next time you tap the emoji button. MESSAGE PREVIEW Before sending your message, just tap the text field to view a full preview of your message. SENDING Shift Keyboard uses the built-in Apple Messages app on your Apple Watch to send messages to your contacts. Type out your message, tap the send button and you’ll be taken to the Messages app with your message ready to go! HAPTICS Choose to receive Haptic Feedback on actions like key presses and button actions. COMPLICATION For quick and easy access, you can add the Shift Keyboard Complication to your Watch Face. Just tap and the keyboard will launch. GESTURES Use a swipe left gesture for backspace or a swipe right for a space for quick typing. Full keys for both of these functions are also available too. AUTO CLEAR After typing out your message and sending to a contact, you can choose to automatically clear the keyboard so you don’t have to clear it yourself. If your message gets cleared, you can easily get it back by holding down on the text field. CURSOR Whilst typing on the Full keyboard, you can see exactly where you are with the pulsing blue cursor. SETTINGS Customise Shift Keyboard your way. Access the Settings menu by using the options button on the keyboard and you’ll be able to change the layout and toggle auto correct, suggestions & haptic feedback. APP STORE No need to install the iPhone app, you can get Shift Keyboard directly from the App Store on your Apple Watch. Troubleshooting steps are available on iPhone. Get in contact: Email: info@adamfoot.dev Twitter: @adamfootdev Website: https://adamfoot.dev Please note, a supported Apple Watch is required for full app functionality. Currently, sending messages in the Apple Watch app only supports the built-in Apple Messages app using iMessage or SMS.

i read about shift keyboard on a cult of mac article and i was very interested to download it for my apple watch, because i don’t love speaking to text in public and writing out my texts is pretty tedious. it seemed like a great idea, and it is, but it’s just not easy enough to use. you have to scroll to access the last half of the alphabet - and then writing out my words because just an easier task. plus, it’s kind of annoying to have to enter an entirely different app than Messages to send the text! overall, it’s a great (and needed) feature, but the eduction is just poor

I’ll say I was excited to see a full keyboard available on Apple Watch, but like the title says, this app is not what it seems. The app is NOT integrated into the native Apple Watch OS Messages app like the emoji keyboard is for example, even though it does integrate into the Messages app on the iPhone OS. To use this you have to go into the Shift app on the Apple Watch and “create a new message” every time. It doesn’t matter if there is a previous text conversation on the watch or not, you still have to go through the Shift app to use the full keyboard. If you receive a text and want to reply to it, you have to memorize all portions of the text and then leave the Messages app and open the Shift app to reply using the full keyboard. Also, you can use this app with the Messages app only, and no other messaging apps. I will say that the keyboard is pretty accurate and has a few user settings available, outside of that it was a waste of the $1.99 that it costs. I’d like to get my money back, but I’m guessing that’s not going to happen, especially since the price of the app has doubled in the last few months. So if you’re looking for a full keyboard app that is integrated into the Apple Watch Messages app, SAVE YOUR MONEY, BECAUSE THIS IS NOT THAT APP. This app could’ve had so much potential, but in my opinion it fell on its face.

At some point you’re not going to want someone to hear the text you’re sending & a “smart response” just isn’t going to cut it. The keyboard is big enough to see clearly and for “fat fingers” to type on & if you’re old school it is reminiscent of the old original keyboard options on the flip phone screens (except wayyy easier). I have nothing but positive things to say. The only thing that could make it better is a second “space” key on the 1st half of alphabet for added convenience (when your word is covered in the 1st half of the alphabet). I never leave reviews but this app is worth every penny of the 99 cents.

Really useful app , took me awhile to find a format where I could tap to text on my watch. This is a really simple , straight to the point app. It has everything it says it would, doesn’t exaggerate any features for advertisement purposes. Only complaint I have is that I wish the entire keyboard was visible along with the send button without scrolling up and down to find the letter you’re looking for. Other than that, this is probably the best type to text app for the Apple Watch ! I understand you’re limited in space for a small screen, but it almost contradicts the speed factor that’s advertised. I guess that’s just the trade off.

This is exactly what the watch has needed since day one!! Simple to use & intuitive. Takes a bit of playing with to figure it all out, but it does pretty much everything the phone’s native keyboard does, but on the watch! Brilliant! So many times I’ve gotten a message and wanted to send a quick reply from the watch that wasn’t covered by the pre-programmed replies, and I wasn’t near my phone right then. This app lets me send a reply from anywhere in the house without needing to haul the phone all over.
