Email Notifications now work from iOS devices!
Today we released an update to the Pebble iOS App with the long awaited email notification feature! Now iOS users can receive email notifications from any IMAP or Gmail account on Pebble.
Unlike other notification types on iOS, email is not a push notification. Instead the Pebble iOS App checks for new email every 15 minutes and sends any new email notifications to your Pebble. Like other notifications if you receive more than one email, they will be presented in a stack that you can scroll through.
To set up email notifications, update your Pebble iOS App to version 1.2 then set up email notifications for any IMAP or Gmail account right in the Pebble iOS App. You can temporarily disable individual accounts if you prefer to only receive notifications from one of your email accounts.

Pebble Developer Retreat
Calling all Pebble Developers!
We're hosting the first ever Pebble Developer Retreat from August 29th-30th at the Pebble Headquarters in Palo Alto.
Join us and be among the first to use new APIs, learn more about the future of Pebble, prepare your apps for the future and get direct support from Pebble developers.
We'll be presenting improvements to the SDK and soliciting feedback from visiting developers. This is a chance to shape the future of the Pebble SDK!
Participation is limited to developers who have already published an application for Pebble, or created a smartphone application that works with Pebble. Due to limited space, we'll be selecting participants from near and far to come work with our team. We'll even cover travel expenses for a select number of participants, so don't let distance deter you!
The first round of applications will close August 6th.
We're focused on improving the developer experience and providing better development tools so you can bring your wearable app ideas to life. Your participation will help us create the best possible platform. We hope to see you here!
Thanks and keep on Pebbling!
