Updated on My GitHub: “inPulse Magic 8-Ball: A Beginner’s Tutorial for Programming inPulse Smartwatch Apps”

by Joey deVilla on August 14, 2012

On my GitHub, I’ve updated my tutorial, inPulse Magic 8-Ball: A Beginner’s Tutorial for Programming inPulse Smartwatch Apps to include new sections covering the following:

  • Timers and pulse_register_timer
  • Using multiple timers
  • Cancelling timers and pulse_cancel_timer
  • The “Magic 8-Ball” app, written using timers instead of the main app loop

In case you were wondering, the inPulse smartwatch is the predecessor to the new hotness and Kickstarter darling, the Pebble smartwatch.

As I said in my earlier posting on the tutorial, if you’ve done at least a little programming and aren’t afraid to do a little coding in C, I think you’ll find this a fun exercise. If you’re new to C or just a little rusty, you should check out Stanford’s Essential C page.
