One of those "right in the feels" Google ads. This time for Google Glass.

I made a Melbourne public transport timetable GDK in C# with Xamarin. I open sourced the code on GitHub https://github.com/longzheng/PTVGlass

I'm sure every Explorer has had their fair share of frustration with the speech recognition on "Get directions to". Although it works sometimes, it's too inaccurate for addresses and especially place names.

I've just made a web Glassware app that lets you Google Maps from a browser/on your mobile to search for an address and send it to Glass for navigation.

Check it out at http://map2glass.com/ (you can pin on your phone's home screen for easy access)

Feedback welcome.

Hey +Long Zheng  - great work, really. It's an awesome idea. But it takes up to 10 minutes until I receive the notification. Is there anything I could do to speed this up?

Over the past few weeks I've been spending a lot of time researching and figuring out how to get iPhone notifications to show up on Google Glass reliably.
 
Unfortunately as I've found out, previous methods of getting iOS notifications to show up on Glass is actually the result of an iOS Bluetooth bug. I won't go into too much detail but that method was too unreliable. https://gigaom.com/2014/04/29/how-to-get-all-notifications-from-ios-on-google-glass/
 
I decided to tackle using the proper method, which is the Apple Notification Center Service API in iOS 7. Since XE16 added KitKat and Bluetooth LE support, the foundation was there.
 
As of a few minutes ago I finally got it all working in a prototype. The GDK app has a low-frequency LiveCard which sits on the left of the clock and always displays the latest notification.
 
It runs in the background so new notifications are updated in real-time and a sound effect notifies the user (even if the screen is off).
  
I'm working on this as an open source GitHub project https://github.com/longzheng/glass_ble_ancs since I'm actually new to Android and Java development. If any experienced devs would like to help (there are a lot of bugs and quirks), please let me know on Twitter/Github/here.
 
There's still a while to go before I can release an APK, it's still too buggy when setting up the initial Bluetooth LE connection, and I need to actually put in a design for the card output.
 
Hope all the iPhone owners out there are as excited as I am.

I've found that for IFTTT you would need a recipe for each and every single thing that you wanted to send to Glass.  However, for some things, like twitter and Facebook, once you activate the glassware, you get the notifications.  There's a ton of workarounds, just nothing seamless.  Unfortunately I have no developer skills, but I wish you luck!

If there are any other Melbourne Australia Google Glass Explorers, I made a public transport timetable app. You can say "buses near me", "trams near me", "trains near me", "trains departing, Southern Cross"
