Top 5 must have apps for your Google Glass

The Google Glass is Google’s new wearable technology gadget that will make life simpler, but Glass it self is very limited in its capabilities and relies on Apps for the awesome additional features and to make it compatible with all the other Apps you have on your smartphone to for example get notifications.

    Hi Rakshit, thanks for sharing. Can´t wait to see the first Google Glass and how it works. I am searching for one thing, is that i don’t see anything with 1 eye. Can I still use google Glass for example ?

    • Hello John, (Since Rakshit Garg hasn’t replied to your question, i will do so) As of now Google Glass can only be used with your right eye, if you have limited visibility with your right eye, there is currently no way you can use Google Glass. But we might see this change in the future, i think sooner or later Google will make a left-eye compatible Google Glass.
      Hope this solves your question :-)
