Developers Launch New Android App That Makes Pebble 'Sideloading' Possible On Modern Devices

Mar 29, 2021

Certain Pebble apps are no longer recognized on modern iPhones and Android devices The latest app makes sideloading of Pebble apps and firmware possible on Android devices A team of developers recently launched a modern Android app that can make the apps on the discontinued Pebble smartwatch "sideload" easily and work on new Android devices. For the uninitiated, "sideloading" is the process of downloading and installing apps onto a mobile device from an unofficial source. An Android application developed by Rebble developers Alice Grey and Lavender Glaab, the "Sideload Helper" helps Pebble stay functional for newer Android devices as it provides access to Pebble files that are usually not readable to modern device releases, said  a blogpost by Rebble. Pebble was famed for its long battery life, a large variety of applications in its library and open software capabilities. This fame paved way for the launch of several other models. Ever since its closure in 2016 due to lack of funds, Pebble, the first modern smartwatch developed by the Pebble Technology Corporation, relied on Rebble to remain alive with updated software. Rebble is a community-run project that aims to maintain and advance the Pebble functionality even without the company by restoring most of the features that the Pebble community uses. However, modern Android devices do not recognize the Rebble-maintained Pebble app as handlers for Pebble files. This hinders transferring applications and watch-faces from a modern Android device to a Pebble watch. In a September Twitter post, Pebble's founder Eric Migicovsky admitted the problem after experiencing the issue himself. I just tried opening the pbz in astro, but same issue (no applications found for this file type)
