Love The New Password 8 Apple Watch (Beta) App, But...

The new watchOS app for 1Password 8.x.x is great, and I have a little feedback, but to be honest, I'm happy it now exists.

  1. App Always Shows Passwords In Large Туре
    When viewing the contents of a field, such as tapping on a password or passcode to reveal it, it automatically shows in both small print and in Large Type ( see: https:// imgur.com/a/hNTy9QK ). But I'd liked to have perhaps a button (or a setting of some sort) for showing/ revealing the contents in Large Type, that way can limit it to only showing the small print.

  2. Favorites Aren't Visually Separate From The Rest Of The Items
    I really like that Favorites are included up top, but I'd like to see a thin separation line (or the equivalent), if possible. Just to clean it up a bit.

  3. Fast-Scrolling Doesn't Show The "Speed Dial" Interface
    When fast-scrolling through the items on Apple Watch, the "speed dial" interface, which skips based on letters of the alphabet, isn't available in the app.

    Hey @nimvio. Thanks so much for chiming in with your experience with the new Apple Watch beta app. We really appreciate the input on what changes you'd like to see. I've already shared them with our teams internally. Some of the initial feedback was that there doesn't appear to be an obvious way to do this on watchOS using SwiftUI:

    🤔

    But I did see that the Contacts app has a pretty nifty UI for scrolling quickly alphabetically. Is that the sort of thing you're looking for? In any event, we'll keep an ear out for further feedback on all of these points, and hopefully we'll be able to incorporate it into future iterations of the app. Thanks again for trying it out and taking the time to share your input!

    One area that could do with improvement, reducing the displayed url length for an item. Some items have really long url’s and this can take a while to scroll past. It’s obviously made worse by the small screen.

    Done! I hadn't noticed this. I'm ridding your coattails on this one. Hopefully, all the way to the finish line. 😁

    Thanks.

    @ag_tommy , @Ben , thanks for the reply. And yes, @Ben , the example you used of scrolling in the watch Contacts app is what I’m referring to.

    @chris55 , thank you for the added input. I like your idea, but I hesitate to fully commit, because my worries were that they’d change the UI interface to cut off long text fields (such as in a simple text field, which I use to save my secret question questions) in 1Password 8, and those came true.

    @nimvio the thing is, a long url is useless piece of UI on an Apple Watch. Long text fields wouldn’t be. My suggestion is just for url fields.

    @nimvio

    My feature request that was filed was specific to the URL as @chris55 described.
