Google Glass is offering its “Glassware” series of apps that include a list of famous news channels and magazine contents not to mention social network features. These apps will be part and parcel of Google Glass, the new wearable technology from the big daddy of search engine companies. In its I/O Conference, Google will be displaying the following workable apps on Google Glass:
Twitter: By connecting with contacts and sharing tweets and photographs, people can use Twitter as a proper social and chatting tool. Built for the chattering classes, Twitter is full of birdsong (metaphorically speaking) of birds of a feather who flock together. You may keep tabs on the folks that matter to you. Finally, the messages have to be kept to a minimum so as to be information-worthy rather than tedious to read.
Facebook: For the Facebook app you will have visit your My Glass page and activate it as well as go to the My Glass website in order to collectively view photographs. Facebook is the social networking site par excellence. Though reputed to be a place that is ideal for stalkers, there are some very constructive purposes it fulfils as well. At least, it has a much more freedom-loving and open environment than Twitter. Mark Zuckerberg’s baby just got bigger with its entry in the Google Glass pantheon of social apps.
Evernote: A note making site, this app will have you using the online equivalent of post-it notes and short shopping lists or dish ingredient paragraphs. The next step in the future of computers is wearable technology and it makes extra special use of this app that relieves the clinical depression of ordinary citizens by its list making features.
Elle: Being the #1 fashion magazine on the face of the planet, Elle comes under the patronage of Hearst Group which has other offshoots one of which is the modern feminist magazine known as Cosmopolitan. Elle includes in its purview: news, a TV channel and fashion snippets and important info. The app for Glassware that includes the stylish stuff that goes on at Elle is designed for the hip and lets them know what is happening.
Tumblr: In the capacity of a social mini-blogger’s site, Tumblr figures in the Google Glass equation too. It is where people post their small talk and short quips and excerpts of conversation. They may use its dashboard option too if they prefer. And while most of it is strictly adult stuff, there is some age-appropriate content too.
CNN: What is formally known as the Cable News Network was founded in the 90s by media mogul Ted Turner. This was the beginning of other spin-offs such as VOA and Fox News. It keeps you regularly updated as regards the news. Reporters from around the world give live coverage on the details of everything from war to culture to discoveries. This is a crucial app on the Glassware platform to boot.
According to TechCrunch, these apps will be available starting Thursday. These six worthy apps have made Google Glass even livelier than it was previously supposed to have been. It will be a wonder to behold when it comes into the market and a cinch to operate as well.
