What's New in Version 1.2.1
- Firmware 2.0 support
- Various bug fixes
Like the bundled watchfaces
Having bought both Smartwatch+ and Smartwatch Pro, I prefer and use Pro because I like the Modern Calendar and Simplicity watch faces (installable from inside the app) better than anything available for Smartwatch+ — they put my next appointment (and location on Simplicity) and the time on the screen without trying to jam in more information that becomes cluttered/less readable.
Either + or Pro will stay running in background pretty consistently on iPhone 5 with my normal usage.
This app fit the bill for my Raspberry Pi home automation needs. Its http request feature allows for POST requests were the "+ app" I had been using didn't. When I posted a question on the Pebble forum the author replied back with a solution that same day.
Does what it says and does it well.
Note you must install the app to the pebble from inside the app. Click install app the save to Pebble. Email the creator and he can give you the steps.
