Customize the complication on your Apple Watch!

Do you need to remember somebody's name? A phone number? How much you spent on lunch? A security code? Want to give yourself an inspirational message?

Complicate It.

Complicate It allows you to (very) quickly set your Apple Watch's complication to anything you can say or type.

If you're worried about putting secure information on your clock face, fear not. When you lock your watch, the app hides whatever you've set as your current complication. This is to allow you to feel secure in whatever you choose to set as your complication. Nobody will see it but you.

The app supports the Modular Large, Utilitarian Large, and Utilitarian Small complication sizes. The Modular Small complication can be unlocked with the Badge in-app purchase.


In-App Purchases:

- Random Complications: Allows you to create a list of phrases for your watch to cycle through.

- Countdown: Allows you to set a time up to seven days in the future. The complication will be a countdown towards that time.

- Scheduled Complications: Allows you to create multiple complications and choose when you'd like them to appear on your watch.

- Badge: Allows you to set an image as the Modular Small complication for your watch face! Please note - images must have transparent background and be smaller than 400x400. Also, the watch app MUST be OPEN when sending the image in order to receive it.

Warning: THIS APP IS USELESS WITHOUT AN APPLE WATCH. Unless you like typing text and watching it disappear. If this description fits you, feel free to download.

Other warning for iPhone 4s users: Please don't try it. Just don't.

Blank complication


So far, the only time I ever see text in the complication is the first time I wake the watch after setting the text from my phone. Every other time the complication is blank.

Side note: You can see what the text is currently set to by opening the app on the watch. It would be useful to be able to see what the text is currently set to within the phone app too!



It worked the first time and when I tried to change the message, it goes blank and I have been unable to get another message to display. Also, when I was able to display the first message on my watch, it showed once and randomly disappeared from my watch screen. I was looking forward to an app like this one but it is unreliable. I only hope it gets better with future updates.

Not Bad!

I was looking for an app that would allow me to put phrases or sayings on my Apple Watch, and this seemed to be one of the best. It allows you to type just what you wish, and it will show up on you watch! All in all, I would recommend this app. 4 out of 5 stars.
