Glance for Pebble – Android 0.9, Pebble 1.5.1x (SDK1) / 1.5.3 (SDK2)

A new version of Glance!


This version has a load of bug fixes and supports some new features – a watch face editor, menu editor, a choice of location providers, better calendar handling, better gmail handling, a lost phone finder and more. See the grid below for compatibility.

Some features are SDK2 only and some are unlocked from an In App Purchase – feel free to buy it even if you don’t want the features. Thanks.

Once you upgrade you Android app, it should guide you to the right watch app based on the firmware version on your watch. If you haven’t gone to SDK2 yet (or don’t know what this is) then you will want version 1.5.1x

If you are coming from the current production build of 1.5.1 you will notice some of the information screens like calendar and weather behave differently – the up/down buttons are overloaded to both scroll (single click) and go to the next item. There is a help screen that can be dismissed from the menu.

Here are the links if you need to force it to the right version: SDK1 SDK2. As ever you might need to try Firefox, or even launch the pbw from a file manager to kick off the Pebble installer.

Thanks to everyone who provided feedback, suggestions and bug reports, particularly the beta test group.
