Third-Party App Notifications on Your Pebble Watch - If You Jailbreak




With the Pebble smart watch now making its the way into the hands of Kickstarter backers who funded the project with over $10 million, users are looking for ways to increase the functionality of the device.

As noted by iDownloadBlog, developer Conrad Kramer has created a new app for jailbroken iPhones that can push notifications from any Notification Center-enabled iOS app to Pebble. The expanded notifications mark a significant improvement in utility over the standard set of notifications supported through Apple's official tools.
Quote:
The tweak is called BTNotificationEnabler, and it's created by Conrad Kramer, the same developer behind tweaks such as Graviboard, Gesturizer, etc.

The description for BTNotificationEnabler promises that you'll never miss a notification again. That's thanks, largely in part to its ability to send all Notification Center notifications to a Bluetooth device. The Pebble watch, obviously, is one of the first things that comes to mind
Users on iOS 6 interested in trying out the expanded functionality with their Pebbles will need to jailbreak their devices using the new evasi0n jailbreak tool and download BTNotificationEnabler from the Cydia marketplace.

I have my Pebble and already get updates from Instagram, Tweetbot, and a bunch of third-party apps without jailbreaking. Almost everything that pops up on the lockscreen as a push notifications. You just have to reset the notifications in the settings.

I'm disarmed by this and reassured that it's harmless.

We still have a constitutional right to bare arms after all.

Least I'm not the only one that thinks these are silly. I feel they will go the way of the bluetooth earpiece, great for a small segment of people, but for the majority they'll just look foolish.

Bluetooth earpiece usage is widespread where I live. It's also a basic requirement if you make calls in your car and don't have in-car Bluetooth.

MetaWatch

I have tested this with my MetaWatch and is working correctly.

The latest update to BTNotificationEnabler now allows you to select per-app which notifications you wish to push via BT. Pretty cool.

Also, with the price of free, happy with that.

I just got my pebble yesterday. I am only getting text notifications. How do you reset the notifications in the settings? just turn them on and off again?
