Pebble, the first watch built for the 21st century, has just received its companion app which enables users to customize the appearance of the gadget with cool watch-faces and useful Internet-connected services.
The Pebble connects to your iDevice via Bluetooth to alert you with a silent vibration when you’ve got an incoming call, email, or SMS, a Facebook message or a Twitter update, etc.
The minimalistic Pebble app acts like a dashboard for your Pebble smartwatch. It also notifies you when software updates for Pebble are ready to install.
The developers note that the app is intended to be used with a Pebble smartwatch, meaning you’ll have no use for it without the wearable gear. To buy one, visit www.getpebble.com.
The app is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. It requires iOS 5.0 or later and is optimized for iPhone 5.
