As promised, the companion app to Google Glass, MyGlass, got a big update today. The bump from version 2.2 to 3.0 allows for sharing from Maps directly to Glass, but is otherwise purely aesthetic. Users will enjoy a slick new interface centered around a slide-out menu, which breaks out the Glassware Gallery, your active glassware, device info, and selected contacts into separate views.

This arrangement is infinitely more friendly than the previous interface, and glassware is now displayed more richly, with example screenshots in each listing along with a brief description and rundown of permissions. We've yet to see the long-awaited "Boutique," but in the meantime, the few official pieces of glassware available through MyGlass are now shown off better than ever.

The update also evidently brings some bug fixes to the app.

Of course, as the Play Store description says, "if you don't have Glass, then downloading this will be a waste of time." If you want Glass, though, it's still available to those in the US for a hefty $1500 fee. Those that have Glass should grab the update by hitting the widget below.

    Anyone care to share the APK for those of us outside the US?

    Wow, there are over 50-100k Glass users out there? I thought it scared off enough people to have only a 1/5 of the number of users.

    Things might get interesting once the final product comes out for mass release.

    That's all what came out of Google's Update Wednesday? Disappointing. Especially with 3rd party Google Voice clients shutting down today (May 15th here). Shouldn't there be a Google Hangouts update...?

      Its only 6pm PST, there is still time for them to release more updates.

      Entitled aren't we?

      But I hope the next Hangouts update finally makes it as seamless as iMessage and Google Voice integrated.

        Well, I personally don't care about Google Voice but you can be sure the whining will be loud if they shut down the 3rd party apps and they got no substitute for it.

          Last fall, they had promised full Hangouts and Google Voice by early 2014. Looks like some a-hole at Google popped an artery since then and no one's been checkin' on him.
