    Does anyone have any idea when the FreeCaddie app will be available on Pebble?

    EDIT: 05/01/13 - Free Caddie for Android now works with Pebble.

    I don't think anyone knows really at this point.  It was a promise and it doesn't look like they've backed down on it so it will come eventually.  Personally I'm waiting for Runkeeper support.

    I was actually emailing the FreeCaddie team back and forth a couple of weeks ago and was told that their developer was working on Pebble support. They didnt give a timetable but at least they are working on it.

    Indeed they are definitely working on it - I emailed them today about something unrelated but s I mentioned I was looking forward to Pebble support..they included this:

    "We are also in the thick of Pebble integration.  We just received new software from them, so hopefully there will be progress soon.  The Android version is first but iPhone is next in line for Pebble integration and if things go well we might have both Pebble and Google Maps in the next iPhone release."

    I was asking about getting Google Maps integration back (as the apple maps are awful quality when zoomed in on golf courses!), so fingers crossed this is all in place for June/July when my Pebble is likely to arrive.

    Anyone know if it's available or when it will be?  It's golf season and I would really love to use it on the course.

    All the way back at a terrifying 290 yards :)

    This is back in Waterloo, and I just stopped by on the way back from the range to get this picture. Haven't got to try it out for real yet, since as you can see the conditions aren't great.

    Awesome! FreeCaddie and Runkeeper just in time (hopefully) for summer activities in Seattle.

    Its in the hand of the developers, FreeCaddie. Check their website and email them.

    Do what I use to do go drive the boss around and make an excuse for a nice relaxing day on a golf cart not in the office. Sadly seldom happens lately. :(

    The Freecaddie android app is available in the play store, free version at the moment.

    Here is what George emailed me

    On the Android front, I have big news:  Dave actually pushed the app to Google Play this afternoon, so the Pebble-compatible free version of FreeCaddie has just been released:


    So you can now try the app with your Pebble.  Here is the basic process to follow:

    1) Get your Pebble watch.

    2) Install the Pebble app on your Android phone.

    3) Run the Pebble app, connect to watch, do any upgrades that the app suggests/requests (you may need to select 'Check for FW Update' from the menu).  I think the required watch firmware for FreeCaddie support is 1.10 and later.

    4) Install and run new version 3.0.0 of FreeCaddie.

    5) Under FreeCaddie settings check "Enable Pebble Support" box.

    6) FreeCaddie app on the Pebble  should appear.

    I can not wait until June to upgrade my phone and switch back to Android. They get all the good stuff. lol.This app is one of the main reasons I backed Pebble. As soon as I get my watch and FreeCaddie is on iOS, I will be on the golf course. The anticipation is killing me.

    John, I agree with you regarding FreeCaddie - not switching to Andriod ;)  I'm playing Sunday and of course, can't use the app/watch.

    Does anyone know of an ETA as to when FreeCaddie will be live for iOS?

    Has anyone used the Freecaddie app connected to the pebble yet? I'd be interested to know how well it works.

    I set it up on mine.  It works great.  I like that you can switch holes with the up down butons on the pebble.  Now if only they could get it to keep score too!

    If only FreeCaddie would work on iOS :(

    I love it! Just downloaded, works seamlessly, and easily. Now, my house is 10,000 yards away from the par 4 first hole, but that's beside the point.

    Just received this direct from freecaddie. We continue to work on the Pebble compatible version of the app for iOS but we don't have a firm release date yet. It should be in the next few weeks but might be earlier or later than that, depending on the maturity of the iOS support on the Pebble :( Anyone know an inside man?

    Thanks Abruno - at least that gives me something to look forward to.

    Those who have used FreeCaddie on Andriod, are you using the Free app or the Paid app?  Anyone know if there's a difference as it relates to Pebble (e.g.: more info on the Pebble using the Paid app)?

    I have the free version and it works perfectly with my pebble. Don't really know the difference between the paid version and the free, though.
