MyGlass for iOS
By Google, Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
MyGlass allows you to configure and manage your Glass device. Use it to set up Glass, get directions on the go, screencast what you see on Glass to your phone, and add Glassware and contacts.
If you do not have Glass, then downloading this will be a waste of time. Sorry about that. Learn more at google.com/glass.
Great work so far....
It's still early days for MyGlass however the app runs solid and I don't get many disconnects if any at all. Screencast is a little laggy but great when you want to show someone else what you are seeing through glass without having to give it up. I would have liked to see support for 5Ghz wifi networks but I'm not sure if that's in the hardware at all. The ability to install apps sans a computer browser and now directly on glass is a welcomed change and makes upgrading glass's apps much more enjoyable and even simpler than before. Battery life is passable when you use the device simply as a quick email/tweet/Facebook notification check or a brief few web page views. The battery takes a beating when running the video recorder or using its playback feature for more than 10 mins and more importantly surprisingly heats the unit up to the point that even the OS tells you to "give it a break and let it cool down" as you will notice a definite slowdown in the interface when things get hot. On the whole the iOS MyGlass app is a welcomed addition and a must have to any glass / iPhone owners so what are you waiting for ? GoGetIt!
I personally hate seeing reviews that the MyGlass application is "Fantastic" and "Finally here!". Most reviews also show no signs of being upset that messages aren't supported.
First of all MyGlass is lightyears behind for iPhone. (They advertised it was compatible for iPhone when I purchased and MyGlass wasn't even available for iPhone). Pebble and other smart watches have made messaging possible by sending the message raw data through the hotspot or Bluetooth connection to the app and have it handle the SMS/iMessage. It is not a hard task and any basic programmer could achieve it.
If the limitations of the OS are holding Glass back, why not just use that solution stated above? It is highly unlikely Apple will change the guidelines for a company they cut ties with a few years back.
It’s finally nice to be able to manage my glass on the go, and add and remove glassware. It’d be nice to have iMessage support but I under that’s Apple’s fault not Google.
The biggest thing I was looking forward to was the Navigation, sadly it’s only decent, but it’s still a great start and I’m sure google will fix it over time. It would just be nice if i didn’t have relaunch the app each time I wanted to use Nav.
This is still a great app and very clean looking, looking forward to see what they do with it in the next update.
