Pebble's big announcement: A new phone app, partnerships, developer tools and better notifications

New Pebble software will support any notifications your iPhone can display in its Notification Center.

November

You can watch recorded video of the smartwatchmaker's announcement at getpebble.com, or read a detailed rundown on Engadget or MacRumors — but those are the highlights.

The improved notifications are probably the biggest deal, in my eyes. If all works as advertised, you'll be able to get notifications on your wrist for any app that gives you notifications on your phone. The app partnerships sound pretty nifty, too. It's been a while since I cared much about Foursquare (although I used to play with it a lot), but if I can check in somewhere without taking out my phone, I might take another look.

The new Pebble app should be coming to Apple's App Store early next week.
