Pebble updates watch firmware, apps on iOS and Android, adds Pandora watch app

As the launch of Android Wear draws closer, Pebble (the manufacturer of undeniably some of the best smartwatches on the market right now) is continuing to step up their game. Today, they’ve announced updates for the watch’s firmware, the companion Pebble apps on iOS and Android, and have announced the debut of the Pandora Internet radio app on their app store.

The watch’s firmware has received a couple of minor, but indeed welcome, changes. First of all, you can now hop into Settings and then Notifications to clear your notifications. The rest of the update brings bug-fixes and improvements for battery monitoring, Bluetooth, and the like.

The Android app no longer crashes for some users, while the iOS app has seen more JavaScript apps available in the app store.

Pebble’s other news from the day comes on the front of adding new apps. The latest major addition to the Pebble app store is the Pandora app. The app works with Pandora’s latest iOS app, and lets users “view and change stations; see track info; thumb songs up or down; and skip, pause, or resume tracks.” Download the app by clicking on the second source link.

The Pebble updates are most certainly welcome, and the Pandora app is also nice to see. Pebble users, feel free to update everything — it should all be live at this point.
