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

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.

Prompt customer service! Cult of Mac recommended the app which definitely will be handy (Having a heavy New York accent sometimes makes it difficult for Siri to transcribe my use of proper names). I had a question about adding it to my watch and got an email response from the developer within 10 minutes! I’m Right now you have to access the app to type and then send but hopefully  will give us the option to add it to messages in the future.

The Shift Keyboard app is the perfect keyboard solution for your Apple Watch & iPhone.

*As featured on Cult of Mac, AppAdvice & iPhon.fr*

Shift Keyboard on Apple Watch provides you with access to a full set of keys (a to z) so you can

start typing messages to your contacts straight away without relying on Scribble or Voice Dictation!

As well as letters, you can also input numbers, symbols, foreign characters and emoji! If you prefer the more traditional input methods, then you can use Scribble and Voice Dictation directly in the app.

Once you've typed out your message, all you have to do is tap Send and you'll be redirected to the Messages app for sending to a contact of your choice!

For quick and easy access to Shift Keyboard from your wrist, simply add the Complication to your Watch Face and you'll be able to launch the app at a raise of your wrist.

If you're enjoying the Apple Watch app, why not add the iPhone keyboard too?

Shift Keyboard for iPhone allows you to replace the system keyboard app with a slick and clean one! Shift Keyboard contains all of the letters a to z, numbers and a wide variety of symbols.

To add Shift Keyboard to your iOS device, simply go to Settings > Keyboard > Keyboards > Add New Keyboard... and select Shift Keyboard. You'll then be able to start using the Shift Keyboard in text entry fields across any app on your device.
