Oh, Snap! How To Shoot Images Using Your Pebble, Jailbreak-Free
Thanks to one brand new iPhone app, Pebble users can remotely capture images on an iPhone or iPod touch using the iDevice's camera and their Bluetooth-enabled smart watch. Called Pebble Snap, the application is available to download in the App Store for $2.99. As developer izen.me explains, "Pebble Snap is an iOS app that combines the wearable Pebble smart watch with the iPhone camera to enable taking photographs remotely with the click of a button." After installing the iOS application on an iPhone handset and installing the companion application on one's Pebble, users will be able to easily capture images on their smartphone using the smart watch.
