This app does Apples job for them.

I would love to see the airplay controls, up next, and dots from the stock now playing screen, but I’m still happy to have at least the basic play/pause and skip buttons accessible from my watch face. Thank you to the developer, and an open letter to Apple: why is the stock now playing not available on all watch faces? Why????????????????????????


I don’t see the time saving…

Downloaded this app due to a recommendation heard on MacBreak Weekly. Was hoping the complication would bring me to the stock Apple Now Playing app, but it doesn’t. Instead the first tap brings up an unnecessary splash screen; a second tap brings up the Now Playing+ screen which isn’t as good as the stock Apple app. So that’s two taps to get a so-so useful UI.

Contrast that to my default action: (1) press the crown to bring up App View (2) tap icon, which I purposely place near dead center, for stock Apple Now Playing app. So, yes, still two steps, but result is a more powerful result, imo.

I'm back to loving this app

Thank you developers for reaching out to me about the workaround if I already downloaded the app to my watch! I'm so glad to have this awesome back in my complications list!

Developer Response ,

If the Apple Watch app is deleted on the device, you cannot re-install the app using your iPhone (it shows a grayed out PURCHASED button). This bug has been reported to Apple.

The workaround is to re-download the app on your watch - it's easiest to search for "Iconfactory" then select the download icon for Now Playing Plus.
