Earlier this week the MyGlass iOS app for Google Glass appeared online. It was available for download only for a short while before Google pulled it, promising that it would be released later in the week. A couple of days after that little incident, Google rolled out the XE12 software update for Google Glass, which not only brought a number of new features such as YouTube uploads and ability to take pictures by winking, it also brought support for this app. With the update having been rolled out, the MyGlass iOS app has finally been released once again on the App Store.
Google Glass is in the hands of a select few thousand “Explorers,” the company is expected to release the wearable device to the public next year. This app is vital for all Google Glass owners who prefer using an iOS device instead of an Android one, through the app they can add new Glassware applications, get directions, manage contacts, screencast what they see on the Glass’s prism onto the display of their iOS device and tweak a number of other settings. There’s feature parity with the Android MyGlass app, though that has been around for quite some time now, the iOS app is just getting to the party. MyGlass iOS app is free for download from the App Store, but you must have Google Glass otherwise there’s no use to get this app.
