Pebble’s standalone app store has officially launched, and the company is doing a lot to help developers begin producing useful apps for the up and coming smartwatch platform.
In fact, Pebble is starting its own “Pebble App Challenge,” which will award $5,000 to the first place app developer, and a Pebble Steel for each of the top 16 finalists.
The contest will accept submissions from today, March 10, until 5 p.m. PST on March 23. The public, developers and Pebble owners will be able to vote for their favorite apps between March 24 and March 27, with the top 16 moving onto the final rounds.
In April, Pebble users only will be able to vote for a different “app matchup” each day until one app, the winner, is left.
