Pebble 2.0 arrives, bringing Pebble App Store and much more
While the Pebble appstore has been available in beta form since early last month, today the Pebble 2.0 app and accompanying firmware are leaping out of beta and onto the stable track!
Upon downloading the latest version of the app, Pebble will prompt you to connect your watch and it will start downloading firmware 2.0. Once complete, you’ll find that the Pebble app’s interface has been completely redesigned, with the center focus being the ability to easily find and install watch apps and watchefaces without having to search various 3rd party sources to get the apps you want.
Another major feature in the latest version of Pebble is the “Locker”. While Pebble still limits the amount of watch faces or apps installed on your watch to just 8, the locker makes it possible to easily switch out your apps for new ones.
