    Hi everyone!

    I'm an independent iOS developer and I would like to show you my first "serious" app: Jay - a Twitter app for Apple Watch.

    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/jay-...mUvbUpU3114551

    Jay has the essential Twitter functionality like tweeting, retweeting, liking, and following users. It also supports watch face complications, gifs, videos and even image zooming.
    It's not a full-blown Twitter client (no DMs, tweet threads, etc.), but I continue to work on new features and I've put a lot of effort into making it as simple, fast and responsive as possible.

    It's totally free – the in-app purchases are just a way to say "thanks" and do not unlock any additional features.

    Check it out and tell me what you think: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/jay-...mUvbUpU3114551

    Cheers!

    I was just on the hunt for a Twitter client for my Apple Watch. I'll give this a whirl.

    Thanks so much for your app! It has been fun to watch the fast paced development of it since I first discovered it. I wanted to love Chirp, but for whatever reason, I've never been able to make the in-app purchases work on either of his apps, nothing happens. And, he hasn't really done much at all to try and help fix it for me. One of the biggest features I loved about his app was being able to see what's trending on twitter currently for your region. You have any plans on adding this functionality to Jay? He of course has it limited to like 5 items and you have to have the Pro version to see all which I'm unable to purchase. Love to check those out on my watch when away from my phone. Thanks so much!

    Thanks for the kind words!
    I've received several request to implement "What's trending", so I think I'll do that. Just not quite sure when.
    I'm trying to concentrate less on having as much features as possible, and more on making the current features smooth and usable. Fitting everything to the small screen often presents a challange

    EDIT: Speaking of new features, version 1.4.1 is now in the AppStore and it has support for searching for users and tweets.

    Ha ha, you're fast!
    That's right, I've released version 1.5.0 yesterday and now Jay shows Twitter Trends. You'll find them under the "More" menu item.

    Thanks, man! For whatever reason, the watch app never updated when my iPhone did. Deleted and reinstalled and now I have Trending. Love having this capability! Thanks so much for adding it!

    Thanks!
    Glad to hear that you managed to solve it. Sometimes Apple Watch bugs-out :/ Rebooting the iPhone usually helps.

    Hey everyone!
    I'm back with a big update – you can now save tweets on you Apple Watch and later read them on your iPhone!

    Open links in Safari, and tweets, profiles and hashtags – in your favorite app: official Twitter app, Tweetbot or Twitterrific.

    Hey! I'm back with a new update

    Version 2.10 is live in the App Store and now it's easier to follow the conversation because Jay shows replies to a tweet and the tweet being replied to.

    And I'm back again with version 2.2.0!
    I've improved VoiceOver support both for the Apple Watch and iPhone apps. Also right-to-left scripts like arabic and hebrew are now displayed correctly right-aligned.

    And I've fixed a couple of embarrassing bugs:
    - a hashtag with certain symbols would crash the iPhone app;
    - Tweetbot integration was totally broken;

    I'm back with one more update!

    You can now view your own profile and tweets by using Force Touch, selecting "More" and tapping on "Profile".
    I've also added a simple video showing how to use Force Touch, because apparently people don't know that such a thing exists on Apple Watch, so feature discoverability was quite poor

    Hi Annie!
    Just use Force Touch (Press strong) on the main screen, a context menu should show up. Select "More" and then tap on "Profile".

    OK Great. I'll try that as soon as it's off the charger!

    Some news regarding Jay:

    Released a new version with iOS 13 Dark Mode support and more optimizations for WatchOS 6.
    It now is a paid app. If you've already downloaded Jay, this does not affect you in anyway. For all future users, buying the app unlocks all of the functionality. I left the in-app-purchases just in case someone wants to leave a tip.

    Back with another update!

    Jay v2.4.1 fixes some iOS 13 & watchOS compatibility issues and also I have fixed video and GIF playback.

    Video & GIF support has always been a bit hit-and-miss and it seemed like it was working worse with every release of watchOS when finally with watchOS 6 it became completely unusable.
    Finally I fixed it for good. The downside is that it's a bit more limited than before: no pause, skip or volume adjustment, but I'll try to figure something out for the next update.

    Here's the link to the App Store one more time: https://apps.apple.com/app/jay-for-t...432449486?ls=1
