The most interesting thing about the Android Wear that most aren’t quite aware of just yet is that developers can create standalone apps for the device. This removes the dependency of the gadget on a smartphone – it basically can work alone without a phone. The recent Google I/O conference demonstrated one of these type of apps. The Eat24 app allows the user to order food directly via the Android Wear powered watch.
It seems developers have used this demo as a green light to start moving on creating their own apps for the device. Two apps by Marian Zorrilla have surfaced on the Google Play Store and both are activated by the user’s voice.
The first of the two apps is the Wear Compass which seems to be a copy paste of a pre existing app that comes with the device. It basically is a minimalistic compass for the smartwatch. The second app is called Wear Calc which is a calculator app for any square shaped smartwatch for example the LG G Watch.
These two apps are not really original but it is worth noting their existence. It seems that these apps are just a stepping stone to something much more mind-blowing. We cannot wait to see what developers will come up with in due time.
