'Chill' is a new messaging app that makes it easier to text on small screens. Despite the rising popularity of wearables, there are still many limitations to using these devices to send lengthy messages. This app makes it easier to use wrist-bound devices by substituting emojis for written text.

Chill is an app that specifically addresses the issue of communicating via wearable devices. The app is only available for wrist-bound devices such as the Apple Watch because it is intended to be used as a simplified messaging service. The app relies on a system of simple emoticons to help users send messages quickly and efficiently. The emojis can be decided upon by the two parties, meaning certain symbols can stand in for entire phrases. The meaning of each emojis is flexible and can mean different things to different users.

The service ultimately provides a quick and efficient way for users to text on small screens.
