    What’s your favourite watch app?
    Well, I’ve seen “whats your favourite iOS and now iPad OS app?” And macOS apps get aired a lot but I don’t think we have discussed Apple Watch apps much.
    Obviously a lot are aimed at fitness, personal organisers, timers and calendars many of which I use myself but there are other slightly more obscure apps.
    I have an app called Cheatsheet for iOS and Watch which has a face complication and stores info I use frequently that changes regularly such as key locker codes, wifi passwords, ATM card PIN numbers an any info that I need quick easy access to for a short time.
    So what’s your favourite “handy” app?

    Wallet. I like not having to drag out my credit cards to pay for things when the stores have NFC readers. And I use the Accuweather app for one of my complications. Finally, with baseball about to begin again, I use MLB's At Bat app to get alerts for games I cannot see.

    Yes wallet it really useful, I simply don’t need to take my phone out nearly as much.

    Did you see the article from Apple news that claims folks can use their AW to activate the auto turnstiles at the New York Transit system (subways and metro lines)? Supposedly you can do the same thing with your Apple credit card. I really don't know how much easier that is rather than using your Metro Card which you have to swipe.

    I believe you can do the same thing with the Washington DC metro system.

    Charlie, that is handier than you might believe. If you keep the  watch ready, two clicks and a wave at the sensor and your are done. And you can do the two clicks up to a minute early, I think, so you can get to the turnstile and just wave the watch at the sensor and go. The new NFC credit cards can do the same thing, but you have to either just have one, or take it out of your wallet to use. The various prepay cards do the same thing, I think.

    To be honest, I'm slightly surprised by how much I use my  watch to pay for things. Most stores take Apple Pay now, so it's really convenient.

    I just became fairly decent with using wallet on my iPhone. The watch is my next step....baby steps...

    My new favorite - the Noise app. I like that it will notify me if the music gets loud during church and I can adjust it. I am so busy I don’t always notice.
