Now I've made more progress with the app I've started thinking about features and tweaks I can make.

Today I've been wondering about vibrating feedback: when a new finger is added; when the countdown completes

I'm worried that I might just be adding features for the sake of it now.

This change would make the app require its first permission at install time, so even if it defaults to Off there would still be done impact on end users.

What do you think?

Definitely no need for vibration. It may want more features, but think long and hard about what ones. Don't just crowbar them in for no reason. Get the app out there live, and get it thrown around a few board game blogs etc

I've written about the app's evolution and growth. 
Over the last few days I've been working on improvements to the Android app I released last year. The driving force for this has mostly been a co-worker regularly asking me when I'm going to add "start order" to the app. I've...

It looks like we have "competition".

With Player Start Positions currently in beta I'm not convinced about their claim of being "the fastest app for choosing a first player when playing a tabletop game."

I find the whole "two to the left" slightly weird and over complicated. 
Pinnacle Game Labs, LLC is raising funds for FastFirst (an Android version of Fast First) on Kickstarter! An Android™ version of the quickest app to choose a start player for your tabletop board or card game.

This is my second watch that's started doing this. It comes and goes. I'd love to understand the underlying cause.
Any ideas?

I have 4 Pebbles (1th watch - Pebble kickstarts) with same symptoms. In next week I'll get 5th (sick!) RMA from Pebble. This is crazy :-( 

PS: today I ordered lg w r, fed to the teeth!

If you're upgrading to the Nexus 6, be aware that it uses a nano SIM.
The Nexus 5 uses a micro SIM; unless you're proficient in cutting a SIM down to size you may wish to pre-order a replacement.

Has anyone seen this before? I reinstalled my phone and every since the pebble/app behaviour has been very strange.

I got a blank screen on the "Update Apps" step of the connection in the app.
It keeps saying that I have nothing in my Locker.
I went as far as removing the app, resetting the watch and trying again.

Now the app thinks I have nothing in my Locker but when trying to install a previous watch face, the app store thinks I already have it installed.

I've got the latest firmware on my Pebble, the latest version of the android app, and Nexus 5 running 5.0

don't read a whole lot into benchmark results. My S3 benchmark lower on my custom slimrom than the OEM TW, but the phone ran circles around the OEM S3 and S4.

That roughly equates to $850 for the 64GB version! 
It's been almost a month since Google officially unveiled the Nexus 6, but UK fans have been left in the dark over a price and a release date. Today, we

UK pricing includes VAT I think, which would account for the difference. Don't different states have different tax in USA? Is it added to the sale price?
