    I'm looking for an app that'll let me send/receive Morse Code on an Apple Watch. Is there such an app? If not, is there a way to suggest that one be made?

    Why not use digital touch to tap your message?

    I heard that Digital Touch allows only short taps ...

    I heard that Digital Touch allows only short taps ... Morse requires short AND long taps.

    Well, an app could have two buttons, for long and short morse, like a keyer.

    Where would you want the code to be sent? Sounds like it wouldn't be all that hard to make an app like that.

    You could use digital touch and draw long and short symbols with it (using the line drawing) I suppose.

    I found this comment on another thread about someone who is using touch for morse code "we've been sending Morse taps to my dad, who's a longtime ham (W6RY), and it works-ish. There's no way to send a long tap, but you can space out the taps accordingly — we've taken to tapping the top of the screen for dits, bottom of the screen for dahs."

    Seems long taps would be a good suggestion for a future update.

    Morse code would be nice, I was playing around with doing double taps for dahs. The only problem is, I'm not sure if theres a way to replay tap messages after leaving the app. I haven't found a way to do so at least overtime I get one.

    I'd want the code sent in a message, as audio, as Digital Touch, or as an email attachment.

    For those that are still looking for a way to type in morse code on your Apple Watch, I just want to let you know about my app I just released today. Here's the App Store link, feel free to check out the app preview video too:
    The app is called Morse Code Keys - Type in Morse Code (With Sound Effects).

    Hopefully some will find this useful!
