- Apple World's 5 Best Apple Watch Apps
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 allows you to (very) quickly set your Apple Watch's complication to anything you can say or type.
You can use your iPhone or the Apple Watch app to enter text. The Apple Watch app has an option to use the popular FlickType keyboard.
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 Basic version of the app is free, allowing you to type (or say) basic phrases and display them on your Apple Watch. Anything else will require an in-app purchase to support further development.
All features can be used from your iPhone or directly from your Apple Watch.
- Random Complications: Allows you to create a list of phrases for your watch to cycle through.
- Countdown: Allows you to choose a time. 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 choose a pre-selected image to display in one of your complication slots!
- Doodle: Allows you to draw small pictures to display in one of your complication slots!
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.
Introducing the Doodle complication! You can now draw a small picture to display in a complication slot on your watch face! You can draw in both the iPhone app and the Apple Watch app.
Also added a help section for the Apple Watch app.

Ratings and Reviews
the app simply doesn't work. when on Apple Watch, tapping the app icon, it opens briefly then crashes. complication does not work either. I've been having trouble with other WatchOS apps though, perhaps this is why... until then, 1 star.
EDIT: so it’s been like 2 years since I’ve used this app. today, I got a response from the developer which prompted me to redownload the app, and I gotta say, it’s a good update! stable, and functional! perfect!
Developer Response ,
Hi there, does the app still crash for you? I've pushed out some updates that improve the stability of the app. Let me know what you think!
Simple and perfect
This app is so simple it’s perfect. Something you think I won’t ever really use it then you find yourself really liking it. At least I did. Developer was very quick to respond and help. That speaks volumes now a days. Well done great app.
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!
Developer Response ,
Hi there, are you still having issues with only seeing text the first time you wake the watch? I've pushed out a few updates since reading your review, and I hoped they have fixed the problem!
To comment on your side note: I have just sent in an update that will make the phone app remember your phrases! It should be live any day.
