Google Glass Goes iOS with Release of MyGlass for iPhone

iPhone Apps Google Glass

After a brief appearance earlier this week Google’s MyGlass app has made the official jump to iOS. That’s great news for Glass-wearing iPhone-users since it means more functionality than iOS-users previously enjoyed from Glass. That includes getting directions, capturing screencasts, and more. We’ll see how the iOS version stacks up over the next few days and report back.

Having a father who was heavily involved in early laser and fiber-optical research, Dan grew up surrounded by technology and gadgets. Dan’s father brought home one of the very first video games when he was young and Dan remembers seeing a “pre-release” touchtone phone. (When he asked his father what the “#” and “*” buttons were his dad said, “Some day, far in the future, we’ll have some use for them.”) Technology seemed to be in Dan’s blood but at some point he took a different path and ended up in the clergy. His passion for technology and gadgets never left him.

  1. Unfortunately the iOS version requires you to pay for Personal Hotspot in order to be able to use cellular data with Glass. The Android version passes data through the Bluetooth connection for free.

    • Plus the lack of texting abilities makes it a far second from what I’m already seeing. A bummer for sure.
      On the other hand… The blink to snap a picture update is pretty great… But that is platform agnostic.
