accuWeather

 

AccuWeather App for Android has received an update which enables it to work on Android Wear Smartwatches. The update is currently undergoing a phased rollout, so if you have the app and don't yet have the new version, it should make its way to you within a few days.

 

AccuWeather won't simply show you weather notifications on Android Wear. Instead, it has full support for the wearable platform.

 

That means you can open the app from your watch, check out current conditions, the daily forecast, precipitation levels, and you'll even get weather alerts on your wrist. You can use voice recognition to open the Wear app, and you get to the different sections of AccuWeather by swiping.

Google Play Services 7.3 is currently rolling-out with various bug fixes. If you've used Android Wear with your phone, you'd have noticed the annoying persistent notification that sits in your phone's notification drawer forever.

 

With this latest Google Play Services 7.3 update, Google has gotten rid of the notification. This means there isn't another notification sitting permanently in your notification drawer that you couldn't get rid of anymore.

The update also brings an updated UI for configuring Trusted Places, the feature that allows your phone to stay unlocked in a certain location. You can now choose on a map the location instead of simply typing it out and it shows the area with a blue dotted circle on the map that is the safe zone. The update also adds a new pull-to-refresh animation in the Google+ app.

 

If you don't want to wait for the update to hit your device, Download the Official APK below. To figure out the right version of Google Play Services for your Android device, go to Settings -> Apps -> Google Play services, and look at the last 3 numbers in the parentheses. You'll see something like -XYY where X is 0 for pre-Lollipop and both 4 and 7 for Lollipop+, and YY is a specific variant id. -738 means you need the APK that has -738 and so on.

Notes:
It seems that -7YZ builds became -4YZ with Google Play services 6.5. If you were on -7YZ before, you should now install -4YZ.
Looks like -8YZ builds are for Android TV.
Examples:
-014 for Android <5.0 armeabi CPU 240 DPI device
-438 for Android 5.0+ armeabi-v7a CPU 480 DPI device
-876 for Android TV x86 CPU 320 DPI device

Pearl

 

The most amazing thing about the just released Apple Watch, is the User Interface. Well, Even if Apple Watch will not be available until early,2015. You can get this incredible UI right now on your Android Wear Smartwatch and its customizable too.

 

It turns out that someone has already copied the home screen of the Apple Watch, with all those circular icons, and made it available for Android Wear devices. Note that this is just a watchface. Hence, the icons don't do anything, you can't tap them to enter apps or the likes.

 

Wear

 

The design is still there, though. What you see above is called the "Pear Watchface", and it can make it to your Android Wear watch by using the WearFaces app which you can find on Google Play. As you may have guessed, this app lets you install many different watchfaces on your Android Wear powered smartwatch, and now Pear is one of them.

Moto 360

 

Yesterday, Google announced Android Wear a modified UI for wearables. Today, Motorola officially present the first Smart Watch with Android Wear. It's called "Moto 360" with a very attractive design and functionality.

 

moto 360

 

There aren't a ton of details on how Moto 360 will work even the video is mostly about the design and reminding you that it's freaking round. According to Motorola, Moto 360 will allow you to see alerts and notifications with a "twist of the wrist." That seems to indicate it will have a screen that is off, but wakes up when you move your wrist in a way that indicates you are looking at it sort of like the Moto X. It also has "Ok Google" built in.


moto 360


Still, there were a few small gems in the mix, including a big one one everyone's mind: will it work with all Android devices, or just those manufactured by Motorola? Motorola's answer was very clear: it will work with all Motorola devices, as well as on all others devices running Android 4.3 and above. So there you go it doesn't matter whose phone you're using, if it's running 4.3 or higher, Moto 360 will work with it. Which is very awesome.

pocket

 

Android Wear is new move for Google to bring Android to wrist. Many developers is trying to optimize their Apps to work on Android wear SDK. Pocket has the same aim which is integrating links from a huge amount of sources, so the best way to do that is to make sure users can easily send those links to Pocket App from their Smartwatches. Check the Demo (.gif) below.

 

Wear Pocket Demo

 

Pocket has created various APIs to make it easy for other developers to add a "save to Pocket" option. Not all platforms offer a universal sharing menu like Android, and that actually includes the new Android Wear. Screen real estate and interaction limits on a smartwatch necessitate a more focused set of options. So, Pocket has created an API to let developers more easily add a "save to Pocket" option in their Android Wear apps.

 

Like most functions in Android Wear, the work isn't actually done on the smartwatch itself. The button will just initiate the action on your smartphone.

Samsung Gear Live

 

Today, Android Wear build KMV78Y is rolling out to the Samsung Gear live, which is was also released to the LG G Watch too.

 

Gear live

 

The update is staged, so it will show up on your watch whenever it shows up. However, the OTA URL has been captured and can be found on XDA (Source link below). Simply download the update and install it with ADB sideload. There are no guarantees this will go off without a hitch, though. Waiting for the real OTA is probably reasonable, especially considering we don't know what this update does yet.

Wear Forum

 

Google's official Android Wear Help Forum has now launched. There are many places to go online to get help with using your new smartwatch, but this Google Group is the place the company would probably prefer you go. It's also a location where you have a reasonable chance of getting an answer.

 

This forum isn't just a place for newbies. If you're an expert or at least reasonably informed, you can take to the site to answer questions and help one another out. A forum is only as good as the people who frequent it, and we would love to see this turn into a valuable resource.

Android Wear


Microsoft is working on a keyboard for Android Wear devices. The company has now released a proto-type version of the keyboard, which can be downloaded from the company's website.

 

The Microsoft keyboard is a bit different than the ones we have seen so far, wherein it doesn't have actual keys but uses the screen to let you draw characters on the screen, which are then converted into actual characters.

 

I suppose this is a better way to enter text on your watch but if you stop and think about it, you are still that guy who enters text on your smartwatch. Why you wouldn't use voice or just use your phone is beyond me.

flappy bird

 

The simple, but highly addictive game "Flappy Bird", was pulling in a ton of advertising cash each day, making developer Dong Nguyen wealthy. But Nguyen decided to pull the game, fearing its addictiveness. At least that was the reason he gave when asked about his actions. Perhaps he was worried about the addictive qualities of the game leading to the downfall of modern civilization. Still, it was a once-in-a-lifetime oppotunity for the developer, and someday he just might rue his decision.

 

Flappy Bird is back, and available for your Android Wear powered Smartwatch thanks to Android developer Corbin Davenport. The process of sideloading the game requires you to use a modified version of the apk, and an Android Debugging Bridge. You can read the instructions posted by Davenport by clicking on the sourcelink.

 

You can view a clip of Flappy Bird doing his thing on a Motorola Moto 360, by clicking on the video below.
