LightFlow Update Adds Pebble Support For Notifications, Makes Possibilities Mostly Endless

pebble lightflow android

LightFlow, one of our favorite notification apps, received an update this morning that added support for the Pebble smartwatch (our review). In the app, you’ll now see an option to “Send to Pebble.” If checked, your Pebble watch will vibrate with a notification from your phone, through LightFlow. As you can see in the photo above, it’s even showing me comments on Instagram, something I wasn’t expecting it to do. 

You can also attach dozens and dozens of other apps, as LightFlow is constantly adding support for more. For example, I now have Twitter notifications from HootSuite coming through, though they aren’t displaying the message, but just notifying me that I have a new message to view. I think the amount of info displayed depends on the app and what the notification shows in your notification bar.

If you backed Pebble or purchased one after the Kickstarter, I highly recommend picking up LightFlow to help add more notification options than you’ll know what to do with.

    Kik Messenger does not work with this or with the pebble notifier.

    If Pebble can support a heart rate monitor or work with a fitness app to display HR, I’ll throw money their way.

    But in the review, didn’t you guys say that it can only one notification at a time and can’t go back? Wouldn’t giving it the ability to receive even more right now hinder it? I know it won’t be a problem in the near future when they fix that, but just a thought…

      Why would you need to go backwards, you view them as they come in. If you need to look back then there’s probably more you’re looking to do and you pull out your phone anyway.

      • Shane Redman

        True, but I remember when DL reviewed it, they said it’s not great if say you get 2 incoming notifications coming in at or around the same time. When one comes in, it pushes the other out of the way never to be seen again.

        • Danrarbc

          Oh yeah, that’s troubling if you’re reading.

    That’s awesome news. Just waiting for them to shop my Pebble now… :(

    Been doing this with the Pebble Tasker plugin since last week – glad to see Devs supporting this platform though. Cannot wait to see the possibilities this opens up.

  • yodatom10

    tried it with my coworkers pebble early it works great.

    I haven’t gotten my pebble yet, but I recommend checking out the pebble plugin for Tasker and (my personal favorite) Llama. You can have it send absolutely any notification to pebble based on the app, or have a blanket “send all”. I’ve got it all set up and now I’m just waiting for the watch.

    I just checked the second page of the forum, looks like the dev is putting out an app that works without tasker.

    I am still waiting to see the possibilities of the Pebble, this expands things considerably. I may have to save up some cash for one.

    Still waiting on my Pebble, but am glad that I have LightFlow already. It looks like the extension of functionality is great.
