Android L apps

Every app that you can use and improve functionality via your Android Wear device

Android Wear is finally a reality in more than just concept videos and presentations. Yes, we can actually purchase Android Wear devices, and that means Google has opened up the Play Store flood gates to app updates that now support the new wearables. There are a full 24 apps available at launch that support Android Wear in some way, and while the number will grow and functionality will improve, this is the best place to start if you're interested in Google's new wearable initiative.

Here's a complete list of apps that are compatible in some way with Android Wear. Each app name is a link to the Play Store to install it, and you can find associated stories from Android Central about the app next to it.

worknman says:

Along with Slacker :) But since those guys never added Chromecast support (AFAIK), I'm not holding out hope.

Francois Roy says:

I still cant beleive they didnt put a speaker on these things. =(

crxssi says:

What? There is no speaker? That is crazy....

NoNexus says:

Wow Andrew you are gonna get exhausted if you drew the short straw to keep it updated

I made sure I was doing something else when this was discussed :)

Experience and wisdom > Youth and good looks everytime lol

NoNexus says:

Yep at this rate anything outside of Android Wear will become obsolete IMO

NoNexus says:

Android wear is a complimentary thing, not a solution

Zig261 says:

Hopefully some developers will add some amazing fitness apps.

aitt says:

Exactly. People are hopping on this and it haven't even hit. Google has done in one week what the other smartwatch company couldn't achieve with developers. This is going on the right path.

Jonneh says:

You meant "complementary" :-D

Posted via Android Central App

NoNexus says:

Yep...I did

tdizzel says:

At what rate? You act like they've already sold millions of smartwatches. And to say everything else is obsolete because of Android Wear when we haven't even seen what Apple will come with is silly at best.

aitt says:

Android Wear will make Pebble Sony smartwatch Toq Tizen and other OS pointless . I thought that was obvious my point. Obviously not... No one is barely developing applets for these OS and there's already 24 for an extension that hasn't even hit yet. No one is talking about Apple. That will be a success in its own because of the fanboys.

NoNexus says:

I kinda think here that Android is doing what the iPhone did in '97. Hitting a new market first, and doing it damn well. iWatch will be playing catchup instead of the other way

TheNexusMan says:

His comment was in regards to the rate that developers are jumping on the Android Wear Platform. Not sales. He then, was making a prediction, IN HIS OPINION (IMO) correlating the early development, momentum, and no doubt, early excitement and probably his own personal like of the platform, to Android Wear eventually dominating the market.

aitt says:

Thank you.

JoeShmoe says:

Seems like you missed Trello

Posted via Android Central App

Bound to mis one (or seven). Added.

NoNexus says:

You had one job! One job to do.....

TheNexusMan says:

Even the official Playstore Android Wear page is missing some.

I'm wanting android wear now...just waiting to see the moto 360.

Posted via Android Central App

coolbreeze78 says:

That's what everyone is doing, i.e. buying the LG or Samsung, then selling it the instant the $299 Moto launches. Yes, it will cost more. That's obvious. Their marketing knows.

Impulses says:

I'm just waiting for it outright, and betting on $250. Might actually just get the LG if the 360 is actually $300, or wait some more for other options.

NoNexus says:

I still hope for 250, knowing it will be 350

/then the next week 325
//then 299
///then 287.50
...and so on

TheNexusMan says:

If you're waiting for a $250 Moto 360, you should just spare yourself the disappointment and get one of these watches, now. Gonna be closer to $300.

Cubfan says:

I'm waiting for all of you to buy the 360 and dump your old watches. I don't want that huge round thing with the wart on the bottom.

TheNexusMan says:

Then don't buy. But the majority of us are LOVING IT!

NoNexus says:


TheNexusMan says:

FYI, this list is not even comprehensive! Level Up, one of my fave mobile payment apps, has also added support, for instance.

noahk17 says:

How do you get Level Up to work exactly? When I say "open level up" it just opens the app on my phone, it doesn't give me the QRC.

Dizfunctions says:

U personally won't be getting Android Wear for now, but as a developer it's important to know what's going on in the tech world.

Gracias :) We shall indeed!

TheNexusMan says:

Thanks for updating so quickly!

TheNexusMan says:

There's also Wear Calc and Audible.

moosc says:

Audible was just updated to work with smart watches

Posted via Android Central App

Where can I find the update for audible.

steven booth says:

Anyone know if stock email (exchange) works with wear? As in you can read the whole email and not just get a notification? Thanks

Cubfan says:

The Android Wear watch I want will be coming about March. Don't know what it is yet, but the second gen ought to have many stellar choices.

havesomejoe says:

That's great they are just flooding right in.

I really like Photo4tune for chatting on android. It has better privacy features than whatsapp and has a great user interface.

deeshwar says:

Tinder just got updated for Android Wear support.

th3gh05t says:

There are two that I are not in this list that are exclusively Wear apps.

Wear Calc:

Wear Compass:

Harley Watts says:

There is another option to avail android app development

nyijedi says:

Still nothing relating to Tasker, huh? I've gotten used to running Tasker tasks like turning my lights on/off from my Pebble.

Thang Fozika says:

Android app stores offer wide ranges with many advanced features diverse. Moreover, the software uses very soft

JKasten says:

Released Quick Calculator for Android Wear today, it uses a 3x3 layout with swiping gestures so your input is more accurate than Wear Calc.

ahmedxking says:

These apps are enough at this moment.

droppedD says: app to lockdown Wear so it doesn't get activated by accident.

sq0nk says:

Strava was just updated to support AW:

Version 4.1.4:
Strava now includes support for Android wear. Use voice control to start and stop your activities, and get stats about your runs and rides without taking out your phone.

tangtungai says:

We had just released an Android Wear companion app for InstaB, Social network for new parents.
Currently the companion app allow parents to browse the latest feed (baby photos) as well as promotional item. On top of that, parents can ‘like’ the feed from their friends directly from their watch too.
