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.

Surprisingly easy way to make custom watchfaces for Pebble. Showing variables from Tasker is my favorite feature, it's a great place to show feedback from my smart home.

Easy to use/ Intuitive Steve Penna, you put together an excellent app that supplements the pebble. It is so easy to create your own watch face, and the amount of dynamic content you can add makes this easily the best watch face generator, period. The only feature request I can think of is a quartz font for digital time (like the kind you see in old Casio watches)
