What started off as a crowdfunding campaign is now one of the best selling smartwatches out there. From its very humble start, Pebble has made a name for itself and the company continues to improve their product, making it truly a strong competitor in the wearable device market. Recent improvements include the launch of a steel model as well as the addition of Watchapps, which are basically apps for the smartwatch. The Pebble 2.0 app for Android has finally been released, it brings the Watchapp store and a bit more.
The Watchapp store doesn’t run on Pebble smartwatch itself. It exists inside the Pebble 2.0 app which is to be installed on any Android device. With apps like Yelp, Foursquare, Plex, eBay and more, users have a lot of choice as they can browse through different categories to find the apps they like. The storefront also includes new watchfaces which can be installed with one tap.
This updated app also brings a new Watchapp locker through which users can easily manage all of the apps they have installed on their smartwatch. There’s a revamped user interface as well as a list of previous notifications that are stored on Pebble. The app comes a month after Pebble 2.0 was released for iOS, it too is available for free, albeit from Google Play Store.
