Google’s Glass app directory now has six more apps users can easily install on their device. The new apps are Shazam, Goal.com, The Guardian, Zombie Game & Star Chart.
The company reviews apps before approving them in the directory, unlike on the Play Store, where they are approved automatically. Due to this and the fact that there aren’t too many developers for Glass, there are only 60 apps in the directory for the moment. Their number will grow significantly once the customer edition Glass gets released, but for the moment you will have to stick with those and the unofficial ones that can be found in our own app directory.
You can read about each one of the six apps and find links to them below.
Shazam is an app that can recognize a song that’s playing in the background. In order to use the app, you can say “Ok, Glass, recognize this” and Shazam will return the name of the song and artist.
