Starting with Pebble Time Round, we are moving towards communicating with Bluetooth Low-Energy only. This means there are some updates to PebbleKit iOS to support this. Here are the major changes and steps to take to support the new BLE connection.
- Companion apps have dedicated, persistent communication channels
- Start mobile apps from Pebble
- 8K AppMessage buffers
- Swift support
Our first steps down the red brick paved Pearl St in downtown Boulder Colorado set the tone for the weekend. The streets were bustling with activity. Street musicians were setting up their stage. Students and locals alike were just getting started with their Friday evening, funneling into the many restaurants and bars that lined the street. We had a different target, Galvanize-Boulder, the coworking space that was the venue of Pebble's first hardware hackathon, Pebble Rocks Boulder. This would prove to be one of the most successful and worthwhile events we've had the pleasure of attending. Here are 5 ideas on what made Pebble Rocks Boulder great.
We'd like to share a blog post from our friends at Strap on how to add analytics to your Pebble app. Strap is an analytics platform targeted at wearables and helps to gather valuable metrics to help developers with their projects. We hope you find this valuable and follow the links below to try it out:
There are an increasing number of users downloading your Pebble watchfaces and watchapps, but there is really no good way for you to figure out where those users are coming from, how long they stay, and what they do with your app. You can now gain these insights and more with Strap Metrics, the world's first analytics platform built for wearable developers. Strap Metrics has spent the past couple of months in private beta, and we are excited to go public today with support for both PebbleKit JS apps and Pebble companion apps on iOS and Android.
We'd like to share with you a blog post written by our friends at KimonoLabs. Their service allows you to build a JSON API from any website. In this guest- post, they show you how to create a stocker tracker watchapp in less than 10 minutes! This was originally posted here (http://blog.kimonolabs.com/).
Updated Apr 23rd: "COMING SOON" bug is fixed.
Updated May 14th: We will now make most updates available right away. Your update will be available to both iOS and Android users at the same time if your JS app was previously approved. Newly submitted apps still have to wait for the next version of the iOS app to be made available and will be marked "coming soon".
