    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.
    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 think I'd rather just not buy one of these useless things in the first place...

    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.

    That is definitely an arm!

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

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

    Haha I had to do a double take :)

    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.

    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?

    Reset the notifications in the settings? Care to elaborate please?
