Now you see it, now you don't
Google realizes that Glass Explorers come in all shapes and sizes — even the shape and size of an iPhone user. Today they have released the My Glass companion application for Google Glass to Apple's appstore, at least for a little while.
The application is very much like the Android version (we got it installed while it was available) and allows you to setup your Glass, manage data networks and applications, and add or remove contacts. The app was of course, free — as any app to manage a $1500 item should be.
There's some speculation about why it was pulled, and we think we have a clue. The screenshots in the Appstore show the XE12 firmware installed, and on the current version (XE11) the application will not actually connect to Glass. We think users are going to need the latest monthly update for Glass before they can use the app. Hopefully, we get that update soon and can know for sure.
All we can do now is wait. Here's the link where the app should be when it reappears, and a couple screenshots are after the break.
