Pebble Snap Snags Support For Pebble OS 2.0 And New 'Tap To Snap' Feature
Pebble Snap, the app that lets you remotely "snap" images on your iOS device's camera using your Pebble smart watch, has just been updated to version 2.0. As it happens, Pebble Snap 2.0 adds support for Pebble OS 2.0. Announced by Pebble last November, Pebble OS 2.0 includes new APIs that make for the development of a new generation of apps for the Pebble smart watch. The new firmware is required for apps to be included in the Pebble appstore, which is set to be launched later today, Feb. 3, via an update to the official Pebble Smartwatch companion app for iOS.

That is, you can now simply tap your watch to snap a photo. Alternatively, you can just shake your wrist to do the same. Pebble Snap 2.0 is available now in the App Store as a free update or as a new $2.99 download. It's compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.1 or later. Released in August last year for iPhone and iPod touch, Pebble Snap was updated with universal support for iPad in September. At the same time, it was updated with support for Instagram sharing, in addition to the social features it had gained through its first update, which arrived just a couple of weeks after its launch.
