Update: If you want to flash this new version of Keep, you'll need the latest GMS (Google Play Services) package, released yesterday, as well - you can get it here.
Just one day after Google's expanded introduction of Android Wear at I/O, one of the apps demonstrated in the keynote is being updated to support it. Most of us can't get our hands on the LG G Watch or the Samsung Gear Live until July, but for those who actually attended I/O, and who have one or the other as some awesome swag, the latest update to Google's Keep notation and reminder app will be a welcome one.
The Play Store page hasn't been updated yet, but Keep tends to let users know what's new in a one-time alert when they open the app. The only item in the alert for version 2.3 is Wear compatibility. If you happen to have a Wear device, Keep alerts should appear on it automatically.
Looking at the changed code, we can see the specific additions required for Wear functionality in the AndroidManifest.xml file.
<meta-data android:name="com.google.android.wearable.beta.app" android:resource="@xml/micro_app_desc"/>
<activity android:name=".activities.RecentRemindersActivity" android:parentActivityName=".activities.BrowseActivity" android:theme="@style/KeepAppTheme">
<meta-data android:name="android.support.PARENT_ACTIVITY" android:value=".activities.BrowseActivity"/>
There's also a single string dedicated to audio playback, but since it's all by its lonesome, it may be groundwork for a future update.
<string name="ga_action_playback_audio">Play Back Audio</string>
The APK is signed by Google and upgrades your existing app. The cryptographic signature guarantees that the file is safe to install and was not tampered with in any way. Rather than wait for Google to push this download to your devices, which can take days, download and install it just like any other APK.
