Great utility, but not perfect. It lets me import my boarding pass, vaccine card, etc. onto my watch, however the 'import image' manual crop works intermittently at best. To import my Southwest boarding pass reliably, I had to save the boarding pass as an image, then manually crop it before this app would accept it. On the topic of boarding passes, one small feature that would greatly improve this application would be the option to add an expiration time to a QR Code. ie: When importing a boarding pass, you would tag it to automatically expire/delete after 24 hours.

Exactly what I was looking for!!! Since Google pay on wear OS doesn't support loyalty cards, this is the next best thing. A place to store my loyalty cards for Quick Access when using Google pay on my Fossil gen 6. A couple of missing features would be folders on the watch app and the ability to display JPG image for codes that the app doesn't recognize.

Works great. I wish it was possible to automatically jump into a pre-defined default qr code so that I could simply press one of the watch buttons to bring up my personal identity number. It is more or less the only number used where I live.
