Ratings and Reviews
New + Existing Apple Watch Issue
First of all, thanks for having a watch app as it's much easier to tap my wrist to enter a building than pulling out my phone.
New issue: Latch complication does not appear for some watch faces that it used to. I've noticed it on the X-Large face but there might be others. There's a slight loophole if you recover from an old Watch backup but that is missing the icon and instead shows up as "--". If you try updating the face to another complication Latch disappears from the list and you can't add it back.
Existing issue: The watch app allows rotations but whenever it's upside down it doesn't seem to actually work. I suspect if the app didn't rotate at all it wouldn't be an issue.

A key would be better
My apartment building uses this instead of keys and it’s been a really bad experience. It’s a huge hassle to unlock my phone while wearing a mask and carrying groceries to unlock three different Latch devices to get into my home. I’ve dropped my phone a number of times trying to unlock doors while carrying things. I’d rather fumble with keys than a new iPhone. There’s a key card, which is a way better solution, but it doesn’t work half the time. Then of course the app doesn’t work sometimes. Having bluetooth on drains my battery extremely fast and before I got the key card I would be locked out of my home if my phone died.
Asking me to memorize codes to get into my home is absurd. When I’m tired and I want to go home, I just want a key. I’m not doing extra work when I could have just had a key.
If the key card was reliable this could be a really great solution and awesome for accessibility but it has major limitations as an app. If the app is meant to replace keys it needs to be a better solution than a key and it just isn’t.
The app works fine, but there are two things that could be improved:
1. The widget is a great idea, but on my phone (recent iPhone) it sometimes decides to show the "Set up" button even though I have already set it up in the app. Clicking on the button and then going back to the home screen is often sufficient to show the keys again in the widget, but it often takes a couple of back and forth between the app and the home screen.
2. When I search for keys in the app, the results of the search are hidden behind the keyboard, and I need to press the "Search" button in order to minimize the keyboard, often to notice I made a typo, tap the search bar again to edit the search, and tap search again to minimize the keyboard in order to select the key. It's a little bit tedious and it would be great to be able to see the first few results without having to minimize the keyboard.
