Pebble says Apple is to blame for the delay in listing Pebble Time's iOS app
Pebble says that Apple is responsible for the failure of the iOS Pebble Time app to appear in the App Store. Pebble says that it submitted the app to Apple on May 11th and requested an expedited review. The initial release was approved a week later on May 18th, and the watches were shipped on May 27th. Unfortunately for Pebble, bugs found on the first submission forced it to re-submit an updated version of the Pebble Time app to Apple on May 22nd. That version is listed as being under review by the tech titan.
Pebble is calling Apple's actions "obstruction" and the watch maker is asking customers to complain on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #FreeOurPebbleTime. Pebble says that those iOS users with a new Pebble Time watch should "borrow an Android device from friends or family to perform initial setup, add cool watchfaces, or install standalone apps that don’t require a paired smartphone." Eventually, the app will appear in the App Store and all of this will blow over.
