Pebble appstore now live with over 1,000 apps

The Pebble smartwatch now has an official appstore in iOS, featuring more than 1,000 apps.

The Pebble appstore has also been released as a beta APK so it should arrive on Android "very soon", Pebble says.

The store is the first time Pebble apps can all be found in one place - previously apps and watch faces were dotted about the place as they cropped up from third-party developers. This appstore works as you would expect, with six categories: Daily, Tools & Utilities, Notifications, Remotes, Fitness and Games.

The Pebble smartwatch can hold up to eight apps at one time.
