Pebble team has begun pushing some apps. An email blast was sent out earlier this morning highlighting a few Pebble apps. Two of the three were for Android and one in particular caught our attention. The app is called MusicBoss and as the name would suggest, it deals with music control.
Pebble smartwatch has been expanding over time. And as of today, it looks like the smartwatch has arrived with yet another retailer. The latest is Amazon and they have the watch available in two colors and as a Prime eligible item.
Pebble began teasing some updates earlier in the week. Basically, they announced an event that is scheduled to take place at 10AM PST on November 6th. And while that event is just getting underway, it looks like the bigger side here is going to be for iOS users. The folks at Pebble have said the smartwatch is now fully integrated with iOS 7 and that it works "seamlessly" with Notification Center. But along with the iOS 7 news, Pebble has also shared some numbers and some details on version 2.0 of the SDK.
Pebble smartwatch, it does seem like it has been some time since an official software update has arrived. But with that in mind, it looks like we are going to get something software related from Pebble next week.
Pebble smartwatch has a decent amount of functionality straight out of the box, however there are more than a handful of apps available by way of the Play Store to expand upon that. We have taken a look at some of these in the past. One app was Canvas for Pebble which allows users to create dynamic watchfaces. Today though, we are looking at an app called Pebble Locker. And as the name implies, this deals with locks. In this case, the lockscreen of your phone.
Pebble smartwatch had a rather successful run on Kickstarter. Those watches then arrived for direct sales from Pebble and with big box retailer Best Buy. And moving forward, it looks like the Pebble will soon be available with AT&T. In fact, AT&T has announced they will be the "exclusive carrier" for the Pebble. The watch will be available beginning this weekend.
Pebble smartwatch owners can choose between thousands of watchface apps to personalize their experience a bit. They can also build completely custom watchfaces if they wanted. And while both of those options are nice to have, it looks like an app called Canvas for Pebble will give users an experience that falls somewhere in the middle. Basically, this app allows you to design custom watchfaces using nothing more than a smartphone or tablet.
Pebble have come forward with another update and this time around they kicked things off with some talk of numbers. Specifically, it was said the total including Kickstarter now accounts for 275,000 Pebble smartwatches. Taking the Kickstarter group out of that total and that leaves 190,000 pre-orders. And to throw in an even larger number, Pebble users have downloaded more than 1 million watch apps.
