For those of you who own a BlackBerry and a Pebble, the number of native applications meant for both is small. While that may be true it does not mean that a few talented developers haven't found a way to bring additional functionality for those of us who carry both. This includes the person behind Cast for BlackBerry and MediaX.
If you are not familiar with these applications, Smart Watch Companion is the Swiss Army Knife of Pebble applications. It brings an array of features and notifications to your wrist, courtesy of the integration with Talk2Watch Pro. Users may access weather forecasts, bitcoin/litecoin/stock quotes, generate authentication codes for various websites including Lastpass, Google, Amazon, Evernote, and Facebook, access RSS feeds, set NFC tags for features, and act as a Plex Media Center Controller. If you do not own a Pebble then have no fear, Companion (with NFC) offers the same functionality but optimized for BlackBerry 10.
Both of these applications offer smooth, native experiences for your BlackBerry 10 device. Whether you connect to your Pebble smart watch or choose to use the standalone version, they combine several handy features into one application you do not want to miss.
Normally priced at $2.99, the developer is giving away 100 copies each of Smart Watch Companion and Companion (with NFC). All you have to do is follow the instructions below and enter in the promo code.
