The company said in a blog post,

The Pebble appstore is more than just a centralized location for apps and watchfaces. We're actively curating the appstore to bring you the best apps and watchfaces every day.

The new appstore also includes a locker feature that stores your favorite apps and watch faces for quick download and fewer steps when swapping out apps on the device.

Pebble owners will need the new iOS-based Pebble Smartwatch app from Apple's iTunes-based App Store. An Android version of the app is coming soon.

Good news, Pebble owners, you finally have a centralized place to find apps and watch faces. Apple set an expectation that there should be a single location to find apps for our mobile devices, so it isn't any surprise that the big name in the smartwatch market is doing the same.

Hmm. I’m still not convinced of the utility of a “smart” watch. Guess I’m not the target demographic, but I can’t help but wonder how many of that 1000 applications are just variations on a theme; watch faces, social media, alert notifications; basic monitoring tasks.
