It's just me the fishes and the Pebbles.

My holiday-hack-a-thon is in full swing. EARLY yesterday morning I uploaded the first fruits of my labor to the official Pebble app store. Fingers of Time is now ready for you to download. There's still some things to clean up (like improving centering and scaling when there are a lot of fingers) and additional features to add, but it's good enough to unleash on you die hard Pebblers. Go to the Pebble app store and load Fingers of Time on your Pebble now. While your at it please give it a ❤️.

 

What's Next in the Holiday-Hack-a-thon?

My goals for next week are to add minute and seconds markers, date, and battery life to the the three faces that are already in the store – Then I'm going to try to get the basic graphics complete for UPtime, Sidealog, and Hungry. It's ambitious for 1 week, but some of the work is already done, my schedule is clear, and I'm in a groove with the Pebble old-school-C-style! {+ some Python scripting}

Pebble App Store Forever?

A few people have asked if the Pebble app store will be closing soon? When Fitbit bought the Pebble assets they committed to keeping the Pebble services running until the end of 2017. I know they have done a lot of work on revising the Pebble apps for Android and iOS to work with minimal server infrastructure. I don't know if or when they may pull the plug on the remaining infrastructure. We shall see. If the official app store goes away, rest assured that I will post my apps on my own server and make sure you can download them and get them onto your Pebbles.

There has been a team of independent Pebble enthusiasts (Rebble) working on an alternative store, phone app, and firmware for Pebble. It seems good progress has been made on the alternative app store, but it's not yet up and running. If that becomes live I will upload my apps there.
