It’s been an exciting 2 days, but hold onto your seats...this is just the start! We can’t wait to show you more of the cool stuff that we’ve been working on.
Today, we’re releasing Developer Preview 1 of our Software Development Kit (SDK) for Pebble Time.
With our SDK, developers can start designing and building new color apps for Pebble Time, or upgrade their current Pebble apps to support Pebble Time. The SDK now includes an entire emulator (on cloudpebble.net or on your local machine) so you can get started on your apps before you get your Pebble Time. Documentation for timeline APIs is available as well.
Here's a small taste of what's possible with Pebble Time, built in just a few hours by developers who helped us test the Pebble Time SDK (GIFs here):
Hey, I'm not a developer! What does this mean for me? It means more great watchfaces and apps for your new Pebble Time. Developers are heroes in the Pebble community. They swoop in and create the beautiful watchfaces and apps out of nowhere, delighting everyone in their path. For example:
Already, we’re seeing some fantastic ideas for apps and faces for Pebble Time.
Feel free to Tweet, FB, Instagram or Reddit the watchfaces and apps you create. We'll choose some of the best to feature in an update. Can't wait to see what the world makes!
