Pebble

The Pebble is easily one of the highest selling smartwatches in the market today, despite the presence of competitive offerings like the Sony Smartwatch 2 and the Samsung Galaxy Gear from last year. The company however might be looking at a grim 2014, as Google announced its own wearable OS dubbed Android Wear a few days ago.

Pebble-Appstore-Android

Following its launch on the Play Store on Tuesday, Pebble is now pushing out a minor stability update for the public version of its Pebble 2.0 application for Android. The upgrade doesn’t bring anything new in terms of functionality, but, thankfully, it does transport some much needed stability improvements, in addition to a fix for a very annoying issue where some users found themselves stuck at the splash screen.

Pebble AppStore

The latest 2.0 update for the Pebble smartwatch will finally bring the much awaited Appstore to the Android version with tons of apps and watch faces to choose from. This new update also completely revamps the user interface of the app, allowing users to browse between several popular categories and even search for popular titles.

Following its launch on the Play Store last month, Pebble is now pushing out its third major update for the beta version of its Pebble 2.0 application for Android. The upgrade doesn’t bring anything new in terms of functionality, but, thankfully, it does bring fixes for nearly all of the ‘most annoying bugs’ and only leaves one known issue unaddressed.

Sony has reportedly teamed up with Garmin to develop a new navigation app for the SmartWatch 2, and it’s expected to get its unveiling at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week. The app will provide users with turn-by-turn directions on their wrist, negating the need to walk around with their smartphone out.

Many Android users weren’t too pleased to see the new Pebble appstore rolling out on iOS — and only iOS — earlier this month. The company had promised that Android users will get the same “very, very soon,” but almost ten days on, the update is still nowhere to be seen in Google Play.

Pebble’s lead software engineer, Kean Wong, has now taken to the company’s blog to try to explain the delay.

The official Flappy Bird might well be dead, but if you thought that was the last you’d see of it, you can think again.

Since the game’s creator announced it would be pulled over the weekend, countless clones have been popping up all over the place. Even the Pebble smartwatch has one called Tiny Bird, and it’s available now for free through the Pebble appstore.
