This Is Google Maps For Android Wear Running On A Watch Urbane

Yep, Maps for Android Wear, it's happening! A few of you have already spotted the icon in your Wear launchers if you're running the new Maps 9.9 APK and Android Wear 5.1+, you should be able to get Maps for Android Wear fully up and running... mostly.

It's a bit crashy for me and certain things don't work sometimes, like nearby places.

Amazon Disables The Instant Video APK For Non-Sony Android TV Devices, Because They Hate You And Your Money

Amazon, cut this crap out. Seriously, I'm getting really sick of it. As someone who pays you for media on a regular basis, to say nothing of my recurring Amazon Prime payments, I feel like I'm more than justified in telling you to stop sabotaging your own damn products.

Samsung Gear Live No Longer Available On The Google Store

Did you remember that Samsung made an Android Wear device? To be honest, I had almost completely forgotten. It seems no one ever talks about that watch, and apparently not many people were buying it either because Google just pulled the plug on the device on the Google Store.

LG Watch Urbane Charging Cradle Now Available In The Google Store For $19.99

One of the problems with all these Android Wear watches is that there's not a standard charging mechanism. That means you (usually) have to use the cradle that comes with them. If that breaks, you better hope you've got a spare on hand. Now you can get another one for the LG Watch Urbane.
