Glass First! How Do You Build Apps For the Tiny Google Glass?

Building engaging apps on the small mobile screens is challenging enough, but how do you build “bite-sized” apps for the Google Glass?  We collaborated with our partners at dSky9, a publisher of best-in-class apps that encourage outdoor play.  We presented several Glass App concepts at the MoDevAsia Disruptathon competition in Hong Kong.  We won the award for the ideas with the most “Viral Potential” (voted by the audience).  Our apps included:

  • UltraRun – an training app for runners
  • gCompass – a 3d navigation app get back home when you are lost
  • gLife –  an app that helps you keep healthy all day
  • StarFinder, a social game for star gazers
