Apple Watch app for tracking custom tags

A simple Apple Watch companion to Exist for iOS to let you quickly track custom tags (that you’ve already created) for today. Please vote for this if you’d find it useful, so we can gauge whether it’s worth the time and effort.

    Maybe this could work through Workflow and the Exist api?

    As posted on forum:

    At the moment, I find it so hard to keep up with the custom tracking throughout the day, and since getting an Apple Watch a little bit ago I’ve been doing a lot more ‘little things’ like that throughout the day like to do lists and the like. I feel like an Apple Watch app which maybe either does at minimum:

    A quick reminder on the watch which pops up as a notification and then hard force touch on the notification to bring up options to rate from 1-5 once or multiple times a day (I know the multiple times per day thing is actually planned… so making this work on Apple Watch would be extremely convenient for that purpose with a tap on the wrist). Pop up notification is the least effort compared to clicking into the app, but obviously can still do that if wanted. or

    rating(s) + quick on/off switching or highlighting of frequently used tags like we do have when we click into tags rather than typing them. So it would appear as a list you could scroll through and you just quickly tap on the relevant ones. Sort of like the current to do list apps for Apple Watch. To keep the app basic it could be limited to those already entered but obviously custom enter is a +++ Definitely would upgrade to a higher (optional) membership pricing if this was introduced for those this would be helpful to

    This seems hugely pragmatic. I just got an Apple Watch to help me do useful stuff and help track things and it makes me sad that I can’t do this yet

    Belle has done some great work on the iOS exist app to provide an action you can use in the shortcuts app to add a tag to the day. You can make a new shortcut for a custom tag, then in the search for apps and actions at the bottom, search for “exist,” then tap “Update Exist custom tag.” Tap the tag name and choose which tag that shortcut should add. Then tap the (i) at the bottom of the screen and select “Show on Apple Watch” and Done. You can rename/customize the shortcut at the top of the screen and tap Done. When you open the shortcuts app on the watch, it takes a moment to sync changes but then you can just tap on a shortcut and it adds the tag to your day.
