Apps are easier to open on your wearable, using the Android Wear Mini Launcher
Well, the good news is that a simple gesture from the left edge can call up any app on your smartwatch, from any page. But you will need to first install the Wear Mini Launcher from the Google Play Store, to make it happen. With this app, you can swipe in from the left edge of the timepiece, and scroll through the list of apps on the watch.
In a loud area, voice control isn't perfect, and who wants to scroll through pages until they reach their desired app? This would seem like a perfect solution for those who plan on using numerous installed apps on their watch. And at the low, low price of "free," you are going to be hard-pressed to find a better deal.

As if asphalt 8 will look any good on a 1.65" 320x320 display. My finger practically covers over half the display. I am sure other apps will come. They already have flappy birds for wear.

Nice app. The only negative is that it sometimes doesn't register that you are swiping from the left. It either doesn't respond at all or thinks you are swiping from the top. It seems like it can be easily improved though.
Wear has grown a bunch in just two weeks and I can't wait to see what it will be like after a full year. I am pleased with my Gear Live purchase and am excited to try new apps.
