Pebble app store launches for iOS; Android coming soon

We’ve known that a Pebble app store was in the works for a while now, and back at the CES the company shared its plans to have the service active by the end of January. Since then we’ve had the chance to go hands-on with a pre-release copy of the app store, and over the weekend Pebble teased the app store’s launch for today – granted, missing that January schedule, but pretty close, all the same. Today we see the service go live, though not for every platform we were expecting.

Despite tweeting an image of the Pebble app store for Android on Saturday, as of right now the service is only available on iOS devices. Pebble says that it’s currently “fine tuning” the Android version, and that a release should be in the cards “very, very soon.” Such emphatic language has us hopeful that we could see it land within the week, but for now there’s no assurance.

Pebble owners will find an assortment of over 1000 Pebble apps and watchfaces in the store, and once users start getting a hang of this new way to pimp-out their smartwatches, we’d imagine developers will take notice and that number will start growing quickly.
