Pebble appstore now live!

135 likes

You’ve all been patiently waiting for the Pebble appstore to launch and the day has finally arrived!

We’re extremely proud to announce that the Pebble appstore is now live with over 1,000 apps and watchfaces. The appstore features separate areas for apps and watchfaces, with six app categories: Daily, Tools & Utilities, Notifications, Remotes, Fitness, and Games. We’ve made it easier than ever to find your next favorite app -- whether you’re tracking your workout, managing your music, or controlling your thermostat.

The Pebble appstore is a centralized location for apps and watchfaces with actively curated lists that bring you the best apps and watchfaces every day. Our new locker feature stores your favorite apps and watchfaces, giving you a quick and easy way to load and unload apps from your Pebble.

Download the new Pebble app for iOS to access the Pebble appstore today. We're still working on the public release of the Pebble app for Android, so stay tuned -- it’s coming very, very soon. To get a sneak peak of the Android app you can access a BETA version on our developer blog

We hope you enjoy the appstore and Pebble on!

      When is the ESPN app for the pebble going to be available? I keep checking every few days on the Pebble App Store for it.

    2. Creator Jon on February 10, 2014

      @Mary Buckley

      If you are having problems with your watch you can contact Pebble Support through the Pebble phone app.

    3. Creator Mary Buckley on February 9, 2014

      How can I contact someone from kickstarter since my watch is not working. Thank you Mary Buckley

    4. Creator michelle kelley on February 9, 2014

      Not exactly sure what all the griping is about, I like the update. Seems much tighter and well rounded now. Though seriously, we need some controls on the notifications. I don't want to get all my emails all the time.

    5. Creator Herpaul Lee on February 8, 2014

      My pebble stopped work and the help center would not even respond to my email. The pebble does not last long. If the pebble only last a few months then it's not worth the money.

    6. Creator Mary Buckley on February 6, 2014

      My watch is not working. please respond. 2nd notice.

    7. Creator Eric R Benson on February 6, 2014

      Very good job, thank you

    8. Creator Jim L on February 6, 2014

      It would be freaking FANTASTIC if you include a tool to swap out the bands!!! Here's hoping they do when they finally ship the Matte Blacks!

    9. Creator Marco Eltze on February 6, 2014

      Most user unfriendly update ever!!! I expected something better but this could have come from Microsoft. I can't believe that I was forced to update the pebble and also that I was forced to activate the annoying notifications. For me the watch is useless now.

    10. Creator Shane Conder on February 5, 2014

      Is there access to the appstore from the web anywhere?

    11. Creator Matúš Koprda on February 5, 2014

      Nice, this is pretty much what I was expecting from Pebble when I backed it, so I'm happy it finally got there!
      However, the app is extremely slow on iPhone 4 (5-10 second freezes), so that spoils the experience a bit.

    12. Creator Roger van Velzen on February 5, 2014

      @demure If linux had the amount of market penetration as android by comparison and if linux was a game system then that comparison may have held up.

    13. Creator theo c on February 5, 2014

      Wait, what? Oh, right, pebble... Yeah, it's in a drawer somewhere, collecting dust. Given I'm an android user, that seems to be its future for a while longer. Have really regretted backing you guys, way to fumble an impressive(sounding) product...

    14. Creator Allan S. on February 4, 2014

      Impressive interface. Slow and probably needs optimizing in future revisions but well organized and thought out. Hasn't crash despite slowing down quite a bit a few times but overall impression: excellent!

    15. Creator Luke Garratt on February 4, 2014

      Oh grow up kids. iOS has been balls for a long time whereas Android has gone pretty well since launch. Completely acceptable that they nail the iOS release this time. Doubt Android will be too far away.

    16. Creator Thomas Burich on February 4, 2014

      Excellent upgrade. Easy to download watch faces & apps. Can't wait for my Pebble Steel

    17. Creator Anthony Pelosi on February 4, 2014

      Well done with version 2.0 an the appstore. For iOS users at least, it is no longer a beta product, it is truly ready for mass market now. Kudos.

    18. Creator Iain on February 4, 2014

      When Google or Apple come out with their wearables I can't see this company lasting long. They had a good lead and seem to have squandered much of it. This beta app is awful and barely usable. If you don't have it, don't say you do.

    19. Creator demure on February 4, 2014

      To all the pissed off android users:
      Now you know what it's like to game on Linux/Mac, and wait for games/updates to come out.
      Would you rather they hold off on releasing the updatey-goodness just because you can't play with it yet?

    20. Creator jamezpolley on February 4, 2014

      Awesome and exciting :) one of my workmates was on the beta and I've been listing after 2.0 ever since he gave me a dwmo. Does not dissappoint!

      It's particularly exciting that iOS and the iOS pebble app have finally matured to the point of having close approximations of features that Android has fully supported since the pebble was first released. It's the first time I've ever seen a pebble capability come to iOS first - such a nice change!

    21. Creator Madlyb on February 4, 2014

      It is a little disingenuous to state the App store is live, when for a large number of your customers, it is not.

      Perhaps a little better wording would have been...Pebble Appstore for IOS is Live...

      ...just saying.

    22. Creator Shane Grant on February 4, 2014

      This update made my pebble go I to recovery mode and it wot update. It keeps looping, reinstalling the update, then the pebble reboots back to recovery mode.

    23. Creator Noella Soares on February 4, 2014

      Very disappointing that the Android appstore is a beta release. You sure know how to disappoint your customers. I think I will look elsewhere for my next watch.

    24. Creator Josef Ferguson on February 4, 2014

      Douglas Shieh, I read the update. My point was that, since they've been working on this for so long, there's really no reason they shouldn't have released the Android and iOS update at the same time. Instead, they chose to (yet again) relegate Android users to 2nd-call citizen status.
      I was considering upgrading to the Steel, but now I'm thinking I'll probably just wait and see what the competitors come up with.
      Very disappointing.

    25. Creator Joe Hinderer on February 4, 2014

      Not feeling any Android love here.

    26. Creator Djlee on February 4, 2014

      Very slick, intuitive. Great update.

    27. Creator Henk-Jan Jansen on February 4, 2014

      Hmm, lots of sour comments...
      So far I really like the new app store. Found some great new watchfaces and was able to install these quick & easy. Nice!

    28. Creator Cal Ng on February 4, 2014

      The yelp app keeps telling me it can't load any data, anyone else having the same problem?

    29. Creator Stephen Holinaty on February 4, 2014

      >Pebble app store is...

      no. it isnt. why wouldnt you wait and release IOS and android at the same time!?

      --pissed off android user

    30. Creator Andrew McGlen on February 4, 2014

      Well I love the idea of the app store and there is some real promise with the new apps and watch faces. Unfortunately the reality seems far from expectations at this early stage. As an iPhone 4 user, I'm finding a few problems...

      1. Scrolling through long lists of watch faces etc. causes the app to get slower and slower to the point where it becomes unresponsive on a regular basis.
      2. Some watch faces don't have the requisite add button!
      3. Some watch faces just don't work!!! e.g. Pebble Light which only ever gets as far as 'Waiting for iPhone' or On11 which is even worse with 'App is not yet supported!' ...fantastic!!!
      4. First day of use and by lunchtime my phone battery was at 30%!!!

      Fingers crossed for some rapid updates because there is real potential here and the promise of a revolutionary step forward. I am really worried that the glitches may put people off and damage the positive reputation you've been building.

    31. Creator Jeremie Lariviere on February 4, 2014

      I'm enjoying the Android beta... the store is a bit slow (too many people accessing it, i'll bet), but looking forward to the final version!

    32. Creator Phil Sainter on February 4, 2014

      Looking and working great :)

      I had great customer service, my Kickstarter edition screen failed and a replacement was sent to me ASAP.

    33. Creator Dipish on February 4, 2014

      I downloaded the Android beta but the app now tells me my pebble firmware is out of date. However, when I try to "check for FW updaes", it says that I have the latest version

    34. Creator Fozza on February 4, 2014

      Can you let us know your plans for Android users please. Thanks

    35. Creator Douglas Shieh on February 4, 2014

      If Pebble has no interest in supporting Android, why are they creating an App Store for the OS? You did read the update, right?

    36. Creator Andrew Glazier on February 4, 2014

      @JasonPearl - I'm in the same boat. Case #: 146061

    37. Creator Eugene Yagrushkin on February 4, 2014

      The Pebble Appstore and pebble apps are great but the iOS app itself is bad. Seems like it was built using non native tools. UX is bad, app is slow. It cannot remember previous states and all transitions looks unnatural.

    38. Creator Jason Pearl on February 4, 2014

      Very exciting! This would have been useful to write a tracking app for my broken pebble watch that I shipped you via your TWO MONTH LONG RMA process and then you kept, and refuse to email about. Case #:108934

      WARNING: PEBBLE SUPPORT BASICALLY DOES NOT EXIST

    39. Creator Tim Rodriguez on February 4, 2014

      Pebble is growing up. The new Appstore is amazing.

    40. Creator Josef Ferguson on February 4, 2014

      You should really change the name of this project from "... for iPhone and Android" since it's obvious that you have no real interest in supporting the watches owned by Android users.
