How are apps managed on PineTime?
#1
Can a PineTime user manage apps (adding / installing, removing, updating / upgrading)? Maybe to how package management works on Linux?

Or do we have to flash a new image via OTA to get newapps or their latest versions?

And how does app management differ on the different PineTime OSs?

Thank in advance. Please continue the great work. Smile

I believe the apps are currently baked directly into the main code base and there is no container of any type for dynamically loading them as such. I suspect this is something that might be more possible in the future.

To upgrade apps you will need to upgrade the entire OS.

With the InfiniTime OS the apps must be built into the kernel. With Wasp-OS however apps can be downloaded to the watch with the Wasptool application.  This is documented here: https://wasp-os.readthedocs.io/en/latest...pplication
