Pebble the company behind the Pebble Smartwatch, just announced the launch of its Pebble Developer Portal. This Developer Portal will allow developers to upload apps specifically made for the smartwatch. Wondering what the best part of all this is? The fact that Pebble plans to launch an app store in early 2014! If Pebble can truly develop and execute an open marketplace (app store) like it plans, it will give its smartwatch a huge advantage against its current competitors.
When it launches in early 2014, the Pebble appstore will be a first-of-its-kind wearable technology application directory—giving Pebble users a one-stop-shop for searching, browsing, and installing Pebble watch faces and apps directly from the iOS or Android Pebble smartphone app.
Now let’s take a step back and realize the significant shift that this will create in the industry. Not only are we moving forward with wearable technology but can you imagine what an app store on your wrist will feel like, think about it! Lets say you’re out and about shopping and you find yourself wondering what your bank balance is. With a simple swipe and a tap of your wrist you could instantly retrieve it. I’m sure all of you can see where I’m going with this, the possibilities are just endless!
If you’re in the market for a smartwatch the Pebble could be the perfect fit for you. You can pick up a Pebble Smartwatch from Amazon today!
