Browse the Pebble App Store from a Computer

Quick Solution

Go to https://apps.getpebble.com/?access_token=0. Click "Cancel" when prompted "Request failed. Try again?"

Search by going to https://apps.getpebble.com/?access_token=0#/search/watchapps to search the app store.


I’m not currently a Pebble Smartwatch owner, but I decided I wanted to start exploring smartwatches and backed the Pebble Time Kickstarter. While I’m waiting for my watch, I decided I wanted to look at the apps that are available. A quick Google search and Pebble Forum Post brought me to a reddit post which indicates that you can access the Pebble App store from a computer, but it requires a Pebble.

Looking at the link in the reddit post: https://apps.getpebble.com/?access_token=[MY_TOKEN]&platform=android∓uid=, I wondered if there was a workaround to the access token.

I tried:

  • https://apps.getpebble.com/ resulted in "Not Found"
  • https://apps.getpebble.com/?access_token=&platform=&uid= resulted in an expanding orange circle
  • https://apps.getpebble.com/?access_token=0&platform=&uid= resulted in a dialog indicating the request failed.
    • Clicking OK, just kept bringing up the same dialog.
    • Clicking Cancel, initially brought up the expanding circle I’d seen previously, but suddenly the app store appeared.

Playing with the URL more, I removed the platform and uid parameters and it still worked. access_token appears to be required, but it can be set to any non-null value.

I found the search link by blindly guessing https://apps.getpebble.com/?access_token=0#/search/ the URL after seeing the format of the category URL (https://apps.getpebble.com/?access_token=0#/categories/5261a8fb3b773043d500000c). The search URL I entered automatically redirects to https://apps.getpebble.com/?access_token=0#/search/watchapps
