So tomorrow, +Jacob Klinker and I will be releasing our newest project, Blur - A Launcher Replacement.

Yes it is free, and yes, it is, in my opinion, amazing. The possibilities are endless. You will see what I mean tomorrow though. I can say though that I think it is the coolest project I have worked on.

This is our way of giving back to the community that has given us so much. Thanks for the support for the past year and a half. Without that, our apps would never have gotten to where they are now.

You guys has given two 20 year old kids their start and a bright future. We are just hitting their stride, can't wait for what's to come :)

So see ya tomorrow guys, and no worries, I get up early. Hoping for a smoothish launcher, a lot of time has gone into this one 👌

Yay! They are coming!
 
With just a few weeks since the unveiling of the Android Wear SDK, we’ve already seen a number of terrific apps optimized for Android Wear. One of the main questions we’ve heard from you is, “will you support third party custom watch faces?” The answer: yes, for sure! Customization has helped Android thrive, and the same will be true for Android Wear. And to make sure that you’re able to create the richest experience possible, we’re hard at work on a custom watch face API.  

Custom watch faces are activities running inside another process. However, they have some special considerations due to interactions with the stream and always-on ambient mode--including using a shorter peek card, moving the status indicators for battery and mute, and rendering the faces differently in ambient mode. Right now, without an official API, making a really great watch face currently takes a fair bit of tweaking. 

We are working to make this as simple as possible for you so that it’s easy to make good-looking faces that work well across multiple form factors, conserve battery, and display the user’s card stream nicely. Some of these changes won’t be ready until we migrate Android Wear to the Android L release later this year, but don’t fret: they’re coming!

So, where does that leave us today? As we work on finalizing the API, we would suggest not posting your apps publicly to Google Play until there is a stable, published API (we’d suggest using Alpha or Beta channels, available through the Play Developer Console, in the meantime). These changes mentioned above are coming soon and will make it easier for you to create great watch faces, but the existing unpublished API may not be compatible with the next Android Wear release, and no one wants to disrupt the experience for users in the future.

I don't see what all the fuss is about regarding the Minuum keyboard on Android Wear. I can think of situations where I'm not going to talk to my device but I might want to respond to someone with a short message on my watch. Options are good. You don't have to use them if you don't want to.
