After months of waiting, Pebble owners can finally pair up to their BlackBerry 10 devices with their Pebble smartwatch. The pBBl app is now available as a free download from BlackBerry World, and while it's not the app we saw shown off during BlackBerry Live (this one's from a different developer) it does give BlackBerry owners some basic Pebble notifications and is welcome with open arms.
To use the app just pair your Pebble via Bluetooth with your BlackBerry Z10, Q10 or Q5 then open the app and connect. You'll see a few quick settings for alerts from SMS, phone calls and emails and you can toggle them on or off as you see fit. Just leave the app open in an Active Frame and it will drop your notifications to your Pebble as they arrive. There are a few catches for now in that pBBl can't send BBM notifications or the names of callers and you can't control music, but it's a great start.
I'm already loving this app now that I can use my Pebble with my BlackBerry and hopefully it will bring more functionality down the line. If you're a Pebble owner you can grab the app free from the link below.
