Google's official Glassware selection has a new member today - Pandora. As Carl Edwards explains in a post to the official Pandora blog, the addition of Pandora to the Glassware page of Google's MyGlass interface is the result of Pandora's semi-annual 72-hour hackathon. "It was such a hit," the blog says, "that we decided to show it to Google."
In keeping with Google's UX vision for Glass, the Pandora app is exceedingly simple.
Soccer app FotMob has accrued millions of downloads over the course of its time in the Play Store, and now the popular program is expanding its reach to Android Wear. Its latest version shrinks scores, plays, and other information down enough to fit comfortably on a tiny smartwatch display.
Developer NorApps has released a video of the new feature in action. The functionality looks pretty straightforward: swipe up and down to see various matches, and swipe to the right on any given game to view more details.
In a move to shamelessly match Google's highly-aggressive Drive storage pricing, cloud drive favorite Dropbox has finally lowered the pricing and upped the storage of its Pro plans on a massive scale: the company is now offering 1TB of storage for $9.99 a month. That's the same price you'll pay for Google Drive, and even less if you opt for the annual subscription, at $99 per year (17% savings).
That's just getting you to put your wallet on the table, though - Dropbox isn't done yet.
Any miniscule tap will wake up an Android Wear watch and make it start doing stuff, and there's no lock screen option built-in. Baby Time was one of the first Wear apps that sought to solve this, but Shower Wear is on another level. It's like the standard Android lock screen, but it's on your watch.
We've been testing Shower Wear recently to see how it works in practice (we listed it in the last Roundup too).
Back in June, PushBullet devs added SMS functionality to their already-powerful client. The only catch was that compatibility was limited to EvolveSMS. Now, just a week after the update that brought universal copy and paste, PushBullet is getting another version bump that brings the ability to reply to SMS messages from a PC regardless of which client you're using.
It's super simple, yet incredibly useful: upon receiving an SMS message, PushBullet will send a notification to your PC (you'll need either the Chrome extension or Windows Client installed).
If there's one thing I've learned from working at Android Police, it's that Artem can be a hound when he wants something done. It looks like Koush Dutta, the developer of AllCast (and much more, as I'm sure you're aware), is starting to get a taste of Artem's dedication to making things perfect, especially after looking at the most recent AllCast update.
Android Wear does a lot of things well, but operating with multiple devices is not one of them. If you've ever wanted to pair with a new phone or tablet, you've probably found the process pretty agonizing. Wear usually requires a reset of the watch before it will see a new device, but Android Wear BeeLink does it in a single step from your wrist.
Mobile technology has done a lot to simplify life in many ways, which includes sending money and paying bills. As much as it sucks to hand over all those moneydollars, Square's Cash app eases the pain a little bit by making it a painless process. Today's update brings the app up to version 2, which adds a handful of new features and improvements.
Everything is better in Cash 2.0!

Dear football fans. Remember that makeover that you were too insecure to get? Well one of ESPN's many sports apps is getting it done for you. Not only does the network's College Football app look like a whole new person, it has a new name to boot. ESPN Championship Drive, despite being version 4, wants you to view it as a separate individual.
The world is rife with cloud storage providers who would be happy to hold on to your data so you can share it with others, but you have to give up a little control to keep your files on a server you don't own. BitTorrent's Sync service offers an alternative "cloud-free" solution, and the Android app has just been bumped to v1.4 with a number of new features.
