Android Wear App Update Adds A Confusing Way To Report Bugs To App Developers, Support For Ambient Light Sensors

Update: A Google representative reached out to inform us that the bug report feature only appears if your phone is also in developer mode (tap repeatedly on the Build Number in the "About Phone/Tablet" menu).  You may need to enable developer mode on Android Wear as well, as one commenter points out.

Update 8/27/14: The new features are now out of beta and available to everyone, just 5 days after the beta release.

Today's beta update is a good example of why: it brings some killer new transition animations and app drawer search for those who just have too many pages of apps to swipe through (*cough* Artem *cough*).

Google Gives Thumbs Up To Official Pandora Glassware

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.

FotMob's Latest Version Brings Soccer Scores And Updates To Android Wear Devices

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.

Dropbox Goes Straight For Google Drive's Throat: 1TB Of Storage For $9.99 A Month Or $99 A Year, Plus Huge New Features

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.

Shower Wear Brings A Better Lock Screen To Android Wear

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).

PushBullet 14.8 Update Brings Desktop SMS Replying To Any App, Not Just EvolveSMS

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).

Pretty Big AllCast Update Rolling Out, Brings All Sorts Of New Stuff

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.

First things first (I'm the realest), there's an update to the AllCast Receiver Chrome extension.

Android Wear BeeLink Finally Lets You Pair Your Watch With A New Device Relatively Painlessly

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.
