I've always said (to anyone who will listen) that Google Glass is a device unlike anything you've ever used before and there are specific uses for Glass that will be really make this device shine. One example I use is WordLens – an app that is useful on a phone, but infinitely more useful on +Google Glass, as you remove the need to pull out your phone, turn it on, unlock it, launch the app and point it at the sign/words, as opposed to simply saying "Ok Glass, Translate.

Today there have been even more apps (Glassware) released that make Glass even more useful and will make demo's that much cooler. musiXmatch is awesome and will make Karaoke that much easier, or help me win arguments with my wife (if that's even possible) when we disagree on song lyrics, while 94FiftyBasketball looks like a great use of technology as well (although I don't have the basketball with the sensors to test it out (yet).

All in all, there are some great apps here that will make your Glass experience even more amazing so anyone with #googleglass  I'd strong recommend you check them out.

Any favourites that stand out?

Just in time for I/O… brand new Glassware

You probably didn’t expect us back with another update so soon, but we’ve got a few new Glassware coming your way. Well, 12 to be exact. 

Runtastic is your personal trainer. You’ll have a collection of workouts to help whip you into shape or push you to reach your fitness goals. 

94Fifty Basketball works with the 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball to help you with your game. It measures muscle memory that the human eye can’t see. You’ll get feedback after each shot to help you shoot like Ray Allen. (ok, maybe not Ray Allen but maybe it’ll help you make varsity.)

Allthecooks is no stranger to Glass, but they’ve added some new features to keep your hands free while cooking. You can now use voice commands to switch between recipes and directions. 

Zombies, Run! Because let’s face it, running is more fun when you’re being chased by zombies.

Shazam on Glass can tell you the name of the track and artist of a song that’s playing around you. Just say “OK Glass, Recognize this song.”
