[COMPETITION] PebbleWear - A homescreen replacement bringing powerful notifications
Well, this could have gone a lot better. This app ended up being a larger project than I initially imagined and was filled with bugs that were hard to track down. I'm releasing a limited version that only displays notifications (no interaction) so I can release something mostly functional. This is a project that I really want to see finished, so my work on it will not be stopping.
Either way it's 4am here. So I need to sleep.
is a replacement homescreen for Pebble.
With Pebble Wear your notifications are always accessible right below the watch face. Notifications are mirrored exactly as they appear on your phone and are shown as a list of cards packed with glanceable information. (Text, images and icons)
Notifications are sorted by priority and only vibrate if they would on your phone.
The functionality doesn't end there, by pressing the back button you can dismiss a notification (also dismissing it from your phone) and by pressing the select button you can view additional pages and even trigger actions on the notification.
Version 1 will have at least the following functionality:
- Basic digital watchface
- Notifications mirrored
- Support Android 4.4+
Possible future functionality:
Pebble Wear, App for all devices (see above for details)
- Customisable watchface
- Notification Pages
- Specific Android Wear notification functionality (eg quick reply actions, extra notification pages)
- Expandable notifications
- Support Android 4.3 (if in demand)
