Feel The Wear Android Wear App

Top Apps for new Android Wear Owners

Getting started with a brand new Android Wear smartwatch can be a little overwhelming if you aren't sure where to start. These are going to be helpful apps to make using the watch must easier and even faster! 

Let's start with a launcher. Using a launcher is always helpful to get to your apps and settings much faster than having to scroll through and keep going through different menu options to get there. With one swipe, you will have everything at your fingertips. My favorite launcher is Wear Mini Launcher.

Communication on your watch doesn't seem too tempting until you have a great app to help you do it! Coffee SMS is an awesome app that will allow you to send and receive SMS messages easily right from your watch. A quick demo is given in the video, but you have an easy way to find your favorite contacts to send a message to or if you receive a message, the app makes it a cinch to respond! 

Next is an app to help customize those notifications as they come across your wrist! The majority of notifications have the exact same vibration, therefore, you seem more interrupted by wanting to look down at your watch to see what the notification was. With Feel the Wear, you have the ability to set vibration patterns of your choice to particular apps. Life just got a LOT easier! 

More Android Wear videos are coming, so if you want to see something specific, please let me know!

November: Top Android Wear Apps

Notifications on your smartwatch are always great, but what if you could make them better? How would you do that? Well, through customized vibration patterns to help you distinguish one app from another. This month, my two featured Android Wear apps will help you with that as well as bring in some fun with the Shazam app for music!

Feel The Wear app is here to save the day when it comes to notifications. The app is free, however, I did pay for the premium version of the app to get the full experience. I'm glad I did as it allows you to create custom vibration patters right from the phone's screen. Plus, Quiet Hours are available to help minimize the amount of notifications you receive during a certain part of the day and/or night. This helps out a lot if you don't charge your watch every day.

If you are a music lover like myself, I always love using the Shazam app to find out the title and artist of a song that I'm hearing while I'm out or even if I hear it on the radio. Now, I can have the app right at my fingertips as Shazam launched their Android Wear app. Find out the name of the song, the artist, and even see the lyrics move in real-time with the song. 

Each month, I've featured two to three new apps for your Android Wear device, so if you've missed any of them, you can find them on the Android Wear App playlist on YouTube and I've also placed it below. It does start with the newest video, but just skip around to the one you would like to watch.
