Limitations:
- Pebble does not yet support persistent storage. This means that every time you select the 'Pebble Canvas' watch-face on your Pebble, it must communicate with your phone before it can display anything. After this, it will continue to display all non-dynamic content even if connection to your phone is lost.

A little overwhelming, but powerful and flexible. Some users may be a little confused with all of the available options, but if you're prepared to put the effort in, you can churn-out some pretty flash watch-faces for Pebble products, with Canvas for Pebble... On a side note, I'd love to see this made available on a computer, for users of Linux-based operating systems (such as Ubuntu) - some people may claim that "mobile devices are the future", but tasks like this are always easier on a computer!

This is a great program! Allows you to have your watchface EXACTLY how you want it. So many programs today do not allow you to set it up the way YOU want it. Canvas allows you to have it your way. The only slight problem I am having that after finishing, sometimes old faces come back that I have deleted.

There REALLY needs to be a way to search the screen store. Even when I upload my design to the store I can't find it after I reload a new ROM. And it won't load screens saved to disk.
