WeatherCat RCP app for Apple Watch??(with complication)
« on: January 10, 2020, 03:55:26 pm »
Would dearly love to see Weathercat RCP work with Apple watch (it does install but shows a black screen with no info) and to add a complication as well. That way I could monitor
at home conditions on a real-time basis on my watch...

Would also be happy to beta test if needed and pay for the outcome too!

 [woohoo]

You need to wake up WeatherCatRCP on your iPhone to get it communicating with WeatherCatRCP on your Apple Watch.

If you get the black screen on your watch after selecting the WeatherCatRCP watch app, open WeatherCatRCP on your iPhone and go to Settings. After a few moments, you should see a line of green text along the bottom of the Settings screen: "Watch installed: Y  paired: Y  activated: Y  reachable: N" At this point, the WeatherCatRCP watch app will display. Once you have "awakened" WeatherCatRCP on your iPhone, you should not need to repeat this step to see in on the Apple Watch until ?

I understand that you would like to see a WeatherCatRCP complication on your Apple Watch. I would too. I never could figure that one out.  [blush]

Don't forget that the WeatherCatRCP Apple Watch interface can be customized using WeatherCatRCP on your iPhone. Select the "Classic" screen in WeatherCatRCP/iPhone. Your watch mimics the order of the channels on this screen. You can move and hide channels on the Classic screen and they will change the corresponding order and appearance of the channels on your watch. For example, if you want "External Temperature" to appear first on your watch, move "External Temperature" to the top of the table on your iPhone.

After you've edited the "Classic" screen in WeatherCatRCP?iPhone, you can move on to the other screens in WeatherCatRCP/iPhone and your changes to the Classic screen will be saved.
