Petey 1.1.2


We are excited to introduce Petey your AI assistant app for the Apple Watch! With this app, you can now interact with the famous GPT model right from your wrist.


With Petey on your wrist, you can easily access a vast source of knowledge and communicate with an intelligent computer in real-time. It’s like having a personal assistant on your wrist!

Via John Gruber:

I’ve been using it for a week or so and it’s occasionally been genuinely handy, especially if you keep it on an easily-accessed watch face complication. With other devices, you can just search the web for answers to questions. Oftentimes, when you ask a question to Siri, you get redirected to a web search. But if all you have handy at the moment is your watch, a web search is useless. Petey gives good answers to a lot of questions.

Note that this is a watch-only app. It doesn’t even show an icon on iOS.

Ken Case:

It’s great that the developers […] don’t collect any data from their app. But is that App Store privacy label misleading, when ChatGPT itself collects everything you ever enter into it?


Apple’s guidance is pretty clear in stating that the app privacy label should identify “all of the data you or your third-party partners collect” (emphasis added).

So any app using ChatGPT really ought to be declaring ChatGPT’s data collection in that privacy label (unless the app meets all of Apple’s “optional disclosure” criteria, including being “not part of your app’s primary functionality”).

What is the long term business model here? If this is to become a useful tool in the long run and not just a novelty, there ought to be a subscription to cover the API cost.

I bought this app and can’t see it anywhere - I looked at the apps that are available for the watch and it isn’t there. Any suggestions?

@Caz For me, it automatically showed up in the list of apps on the watch.
