User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.
*NOT WORTH $2.99* The idea of this app is very cool, but putting it to work it seems it has been a little bit difficult for the developers. You don’t receive notifications from this app. When you get a message from the original WhatsApp, then you gotta go to this app, wait for it to refresh so you can see the latest messages and then answer them. Is it better than the original WhatsApp? Yes, because there is no WhatsApp for Apple Watch as of now, you can only instantly reply from the notifications, whenever you get a WhatsApp message. Is it worth $2.99? Hell to the no. This app should cost $0.99 just to support the developers because of the idea and the work they certainly did. But no more than that. It needs work. When this app gives you the ability to receive notifications (replace or duplicate WhatsApp notifications) and do replies without entering the app, then this app would be worth it.
This is an excellent app but it can be better. The developer has done a terrific job considering WhatsApp hasn’t put this out for us using Apple Watch and is improving it quickly. Notifications are done through Apple Watch notifications and WhatsApp. Sure you can respond to a message this way but you can’t see an entire chat or prior message once you’ve responded. Using this app you can see a chat with pictures and recordings. You can see all of your chats and choose which to respond to. You can’t do that without this app. It is definitely worth the $3 and I’m sure it will get better. Give the developer time and suggestions. Refresh can be faster. Can notifications be better? how about when receiving a notification, having a button that takes you directly to the chat? Right now if I get a notification and I want to read the thread I have to get out of notifications and open watch chat to see the conversation and respond. Thanks.
Here are things you can and cannot do with this app on your watch: you will get all notification perfectly, you can open all the conversations you have, open a voice message, type a message (only in English unfortunately), record a voice message to become a typed message (also in English only), replay with any emoji you want, open and zoom a picture, send a quick reply (you can set your own), send a scribble. You cannot: make a voice call (but you will get a notification after someone call you), type or record a message other than English (very sadly). For me, this app deserves a 5 star for having these amazing features, but i still really wish if i can make a voice call or at least type or record a message in my language (Arabic). I hope Arabic language will be add soon by the developer. I hope you guys find this review helpful!
I just bought the app and honestly would have asked for a refund if I could. The app takes for ever to load voice messages and when they start playing they suddenly stop. Also I can't lower my wrist as the minute the apple watch screen turns off the voice message stops playing. Basically the voice message feature is broken in this application which is one of the main reason to purchase the application. Also application constantly freezez and I have to relaunch it to get it to work. Finally the UI is extremely unpolished for an app that costs $3. It has potential but needs lots of improvement. Also doesn't ring when you get calls. Can't leave voice messages. Finally it didn't support gifs. Deffinetely not worth the price.
It was irritating to learn that the WhatsApp app folks have not yet modified their App to be fully compatible with the new Apple Watch I just purchased. Getting WhatsApp notifications on my watch is and was something I want and need. Fortunately I discovered WatchChat 2. It pretty much does everything I need and want it to - and it works well. A huge plis is being able to get thoughtful and quick feedback from the developer. I had a few questions regarding installation, use of, and access to the WatchChat app - and the developer answered them quickly, thoughtfully and articulately. Bottom line - not only is this a functional and incredibly useful app - but customer and technical service and help directly from the developer make it a great one, in my opinion. I don’t normally take the time to write detailed reviews - but the quality and usefulness of this app - combined with the intellogent and helpful customer support from the developer - mean a lot to me. I’m seriously recommending it.

- use a variety of different keyboard layouts*
- view pictures (and zoom into them in native resolution)

Setting up the app for the first time only takes 4 simple steps:

- scan the QR code that will appear on your Apple Watch after 10-30 seconds
- if a popup comes up, just try again, it will work out eventually :)
As this is a 3rd-party-app, I would really appreciate if you had suggestions for further development so I can take your ideas into consideration. If you encounter issues while using the app, don't hesitate to contact me, I am more than happy to help.
Please keep in mind that, as the app isn’t officially affiliated with WhatsApp, available features and functionality are subject to change. To keep up with everything, the app has been updated more than 50 times since its release in 2017 - I am always looking for ways to offer new features or improve the existing ones.
