Pebble to launch an app store next year
Pebble is working on launching an app market for developers to build software on their platform. The Pebble Appstore will be launching early next year and will be integrated into the iPhone and Android applications for the Pebble.
Third party apps and watch face discovery tools that already exist, like MyPebbleFaces.com, will continue to exist. But the Pebble App Store will be the best way to promote and distribute Pebble applications to users.
The Pebble app store will not have paid apps upon launching, but developers can charge for their companion apps on iOS and Android. Developers can publish apps to the Pebble App Store through a web-based portal that is free to use. Apps will be chosen and featured by the developer support team.
There will be seven categories for apps: Games, Notifications, Remotes, Daily, Tools & Utilities, Sports & Fitness, and Watchfaces.
