Pebble OS gets another update with SDK available for developers


You all know probably Pebble Watch, the fruit of Pebbles Kickstarter funded project that has had a huge hit among gadget freaks the past few months. Well Pebble stuck ti its word and released recently a new software update for the watch, that includes Watchface SDK for developers. From now on, developers will have the chance to get creative with the watchfaces that can be shared and downloaded to Pebble.

The Pebble team also released an OS update today to build 1.10.0 for both iOS and Android app.  The new software brings support for watchfaces created by the previously mentioned Watchface SDK, helps increase battery life on iOS devices, include an improved battery indicator, and more. They also solved a lot of bugs, all of which we have listed below.

What’s New

  • Added support for third-party watchfaces created by the watchface SDK (see the SDK release notes for more details).
  • Resolved power-savings issues causing impaired battery life when connected to an iOS device.
  • Improved the responsiveness and power-efficiency of several system applications.
  • Improved battery indicator to be more responsive and accurate.
  • Added an option to disable turning on the backlight using the accelerometer.
  • Added an option to disable the vibrating motor when a notification arrives.
  • Factory reset now removes all non-system applications and watchfaces.
  • “Allow Pebble to communicate…” pop-ups occur much less frequently on iOS.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a crash that occurred when an email is sent over MAP on iOS with an empty subject.
  • Fixed a crash in the music app that occurred when Bluetooth was disabled.
  • Fixed a crash in the music app if tracks were changed too quickly when paired with an iOS device.
  • Fixed an issue where non-fullscreen apps that aren’t animated don’t render properly.
