Apps are easier to open on your wearable, using the Android Wear Mini Launcher

0. phoneArena 12 Jul 2014, 02:10 posted on

If you want to load up one of the installed apps on your Android Wear powered smartwatch, you can either try to launch it by saying the name of the app to your watch, or by scrolling to the bottom of the options list. Not that either method is overly taxing, but you might like an easier way to launch an app from your timepiece...

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.
