The first 6 Android Wear apps already revealed

The first 6 Android Wear apps already revealed
Google finally took the lid off of Android Wear today and showed us what life could be like with Google wearables. The preview SDK had a focus on notifications, but the full SDK is pushing how to translate an app experience to the new form factor. Google had a good number of apps to show off. 

As was the message with the preview SDK, Google really wants Android Wear to be used for quick, glanceable information that doesn't require much in terms of interaction. So, it's not all that surprising which apps are the first to make it to Android smartwatches, including a cooking app, a song sharing app, and a taxi service app. All would be fast interactions for a specific purpose, and should work well on smartwatches. 

Without further ado, here are the six apps shown off first for Android Wear.

Very nice. Can't wait for this, and everything else Google unveiled at I/O to take off in the coming months.

Me neither I can't wait for the Moto 360. Beautiful desing. I'm really bummed that it is coming out yet, but I'd rather it be delayed than half-baked so I guess I'm cool with it.

Why? Google showed off some nice stuff, but nothing really groundbreaking. A bunch of stuff they showed off didn't even work when they demonstrated it. Do you need iOS users to be jealous to validate your choice? If so, then you made the wrong choice.
