The makers of the Pebble smartwatch have announced plans to open an Appstore in early 2014. App categories featured in the store will include Sports & Fitness, Daily, Remotes, Games, Notifications, and Tools & Utilities. The company also recently released a 2.0 version of its software development kit (SDK) that makes it easier for developers to create apps for the device.
However, before developers get too excited about creating apps for the new Pebble Appstore, they should note that all apps in the store must be available for free. However, developers will be able to charge for companion iOS or Android apps if they choose to offer them.
