Owners of the Pebble smartwatch device that originally launched on the Kickstarter crowd funding website last year, might be interested in a new application designed for the Pebble smartwatch called Purr.
The Purr Pebble app has been designed by developer James Brooks and has taken its inspiration from another device called Durr which was recently featured on the Verge technology website and vibrates every five minutes.
The new Purr Pebble app is currently in development and will be launching with the new upcoming Pebble 2.0 operating system. James explains:
“I’ve started writing a Pebble app that replicates the functionality of Durr. It’s using SDK v2.0 since that’ll be coming soon and it’s nice. Purr is open source and there are a couple of issues open that I intend to fix and close.”
The idea behind both the Durr and new Purr Pebble application is to subtly remind you that 5 minutes has passed and that you need to make most of passing time. Check out more information on the new Durr wrist worn device over on the Verge website.
