Type on your watch with the legendary four-button typing system.

If you want to leave your phone behind, or even in your pocket, there's a problem: you can navigate, pay, answer calls, run health apps, and get news and reports, but you can't type on your Apple Watch.... until now.

By reducing the keypad to four buttons, we allow you to type easily on Apple Watch.

With a design three years in the making, Modality has a layout that is easy to learn and memorize, because the letters are arranged by shape. You'll probably understand how it works the first time you use it. And you may even find it fun.

After we released Modality for Apple Watch, I sent out many, many texts in the first week - partly because of the excitement, but mostly because it's easier than reaching for a phone.

We thank you for trying Apple Watch Modality and invite you to give us feedback at

Download and use Modality for Apple Watch... and then get it for your iPhone or iPad too.

Great app!

Modality has made my everyday life so much easier, when I’m in a meeting and need to easily type to my kids without distracting this is the go to app I use. 10/10 recommend!

Thank you so much for this review! I also use Modality in meeting situations for those quick texts, as well as for longer writing when I simply don't want to take out my phone. Please contact us at any time at or on Facebook so we can get more specifics on your experiences as well as find out what suggestions you might have.

Works for any number of situations, and I can write very long texts.

I hope e-mail and note options come soon, but for now I can get any text to my phone through texting myself.

Very easy to learn, and pretty comfortable.

Modality should store new words that I type in single letter mode. I think that option is also on its way.

All in all an incredible solution for typing on a watch, and I end up using it a lot.

Thank you!

To respond quickly, yes, we want to expand to allow for e-mails and notes. And we also plan to "save" words that you would type in single-letter mode. These will come out, most likely in the next update.

Thanks again, and please keep us updated on Facebook or
