Pebble is releasing a new upgrade to the beta firmware for Android users. This brings us up to Beta11, and to hear Pebble tell it, “it fixes the most annoying bugs.” Because, you know, getting those fixed are kind of important. The list isn’t terribly massive, but here’s what they’ve been able to clean up for those who were experiencing some troubling issues in Beta10:
- PebbleKit JS localStorage is now sandboxed for each app
- Many improvements to onboarding and FW installation
- Issues with sideloading apps in some circumstances have been fixed
- Some issues with loading JS configuration views after the app has been quit have been addressed
- MyPebble now loads faster
They’ve also said this upgrade significantly improves stability, which is something we always like to hear. The upgrade doesn’t come without minor pitfalls, though, as Pebble has noted that a known issue does still exist.
Namely, some users may experience issues pairing their smart watch with their smartphone while onboarding. The quick fix, at least until they address the issue in a future upgrade, is to exit the Pebble app, remove the pairing settings from your Pebble and Android app, then pair the devices manually.
Pebble is currently gathering feedback from the great community surrounding the device, so be sure to sign up and drop your thoughts if you run into any issues or have any suggestions for improvement (but, of course, not before downloading the latest Beta APK right here).
