Pebble 2.0 App for Android Released

Pebble has finally released Pebble 2 App for Android (iOS version has been around for a while) and the updated Version 2 Firmware. New FW adds couple of handy features to pebble: The ability to see Power remaining and Bluetooth Connectivity status. Although to use these you may have to use a custom watchface. Also the watchface will invert colors if the connection with phone is broken. Apart from these cosmetic changes, the new app brings in the 'Pebble Appstore' enabling you to install custom apps. As you can see, Evernote, everyone's favorite note taking app is already present in the new Appstore. The app store has some really cool stuff and is worth a detailed exploration.

Although Pebble delayed the launch of android app to make sure that all major bugs are quashed, there still seem to be some remaining. The app seems to be sluggish (on my Nexus 5) to respond and seems to be stuck in "Installing App" screen. Hope they will fix the remaining bugs soon
