Add a T9 style keyboard to your Apple Watch with Retro Keyboard.


Developed by the creator of the Shift Keyboard app, and a perfect alternative to Scribble or Voice Dictation, Retro Keyboard makes it much easier to type and send messages from your wrist by going back to a tried and tested keyboard design.


Retro Keyboard contains these great features:

T9 KEYBOARD

Before the iPhone, everyone was typing on keypads that only had 9 keys. Retro Keyboard brings that retro feel back - this time on Apple Watch!


SUGGESTIONS

As you’re typing, you can complete words using the Suggestions bar above the keys.

Tap on a suggestion to replace the current typed word with the full suggestion. Great for improving speed on the small screen!

Access all suggestions by tapping the ellipsis icon next to the first two suggestions.


OTHER CHARACTERS

Retro Keyboard has full support for adding symbols, numbers and other special characters.


EMOJI

Unlike the built-in Messages app, Retro Keyboard supports adding an unlimited amount of emoji to a single message!

Simply select the emoji you’d like to add from the emoji picker and it’ll be appended to your message.

Your top 10 most recent emoji will even be suggested the next time you tap the emoji button.


MESSAGE PREVIEW

Before sending your message, just tap the text field to view a full preview of your message.


SENDING

Retro Keyboard uses the built-in Apple Messages app on your Apple Watch to send messages to your contacts.

Type out your message, tap the send button and you’ll be taken to the Messages app with your message ready to go!


HAPTICS

Choose to receive Haptic Feedback on actions like key presses and button actions.


COMPLICATION

For quick and easy access, you can add the Retro Keyboard Complication to your Watch Face. Just tap and the keyboard will launch.


AUTO CLEAR

After typing out your message and sending to a contact, you can choose to automatically clear the keyboard so you don’t have to clear it yourself.

If your message gets cleared, you can easily get it back by holding down on the text field.


CURSOR

Whilst typing on the Full keyboard, you can see exactly where you are with the pulsing blue cursor.


SETTINGS

Customise Retro Keyboard your way.

Access the Settings menu by using the options button on the keyboard and you’ll be able to toggle settings like suggestions & haptic feedback.


APP STORE

No need to install the iPhone app, you can get Retro Keyboard directly from the App Store on your Apple Watch.

Troubleshooting steps are available on iPhone.
