Snapchat 'Micro' will be coming to the Galaxy Gear

When Samsung announced the Galaxy Gear it rolled out a solid list of well-known apps that will be supported on the device, and now Snapchat is announcing it will have a "Micro" version of its app for the smartwatch. The spontaneous use of Snapchat really does lend itself to the always-on nature of a small camera on your wrist, and it's good to see Samsung getting together with popular app makers to have these types of apps ready for launch.

There's no indication of how Snapchat Micro will differ in terms of functionality from the full version of the app on Android, but we have to hope it'll be a full experience. We won't have to wait long though, as Samsung's latest wearable device is ready to hit retailers in just a few weeks.
