24 Hours After App Store Submission

None of my close friends or family own a Pebble smart watch and a lot of the HGV drivers I work with do not even have smartphones. With this is mind I was not very optimistic with the success of the Driver Timer app in the Pebble app store.

The Pebble app store offers a dashboard for developers where they can view their submitted applications and view statistics about that. One of the statistics is the current number of installs an app has, note this is current installs, if a user wishes to delete the app after installing it, this number will decrease.

To my surprise, 24 hours after submitting my Driver Timer app, I currently have 13 installs. I’m am yet to get any feedback from these users but I hope to get some eventually.
