Happy New User with A Question

Hey Hayden!! I love the app, I just got it yesterday for my iPhone and it is GREAT! I just loaded it with all the best local fast food places and restaurants. My boyfriend and I are both incredibly indecisive almost every single date night we try to plan together. This should be a fun fix to that!

However, I am having a hard time getting the app to work the same on my Apple Watch. How can I get the custom responses to come up on my watch, instead of the default ones? Is this possible yet, or do I just not know how to use my watch correctly? (I also just got my watch like two weeks ago..)

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! 😊👍🏼

Hi, I'm so glad you love the app! Sending custom responses to the Apple Watch is not possible right now, but I am currently working on that feature and it will be out soon!

Waste of time.

Start with settings that don't work and move along to the glaring spellings like "Yes spelled as Yess". Animations don't work on iPad Pro. The developer should review app before releasing it. Even free apps deserve quality control.......I just got a notice. The developer instead of checking out the bugs decided to insult me and post that i'm a liar. Apple should drop this developer for being so rude.

I have received another response from the developer. Quote "I'm sorry about the reply. You did come across as a little rude to me, but that was no way for me to reply" End Quote. The developer should have stopped with "I'm Sorry" . I have removed the app from my iPad and stick by my review which was not a lie. Some settings do not function properly and the app has spelling errors. The point of the review process is to make apps better.
