Motorola's Moto 360 stole the Android Wear spotlight when Google's smartwatch operating system was first revealed. But it's not the only tech-filled timepiece to sport a circular display, with this, LG's G Watch R, hot on its heels just a few months after the Moto 360's release. Depending on your aesthetic taste, the G Watch R may well be the best smartwatch yet. But just because the hardware is ready, doesn't necessarily mean that the Android Wear software is too.
What Is It?
A circular, £220 (~$350) smartwatch running Google's wearable operating system, Android Wear.
Who's It For?
Those that can't be bothered to take their phones out of their pockets to check on every Android notification as they come in. Fitness fanatics who want a wrist-based heart-rate tracker. Fans of Casio G-Shock watches. People who hate right angles.

Android Wear Devices won’t be iOS or Mac compatible this year

Android Wear Devices won’t be iOS or Mac compatible this year

- 9to5mac.com

Google invited us to check out their new line of Nexus products running Lollipop earlier today.   The Motorola Nexus 6 is about the size of the iPhone 6 Plus with a slightly bigger screen and thicker/heavier profile. On the other hand, the HTC Nexus 9 is smaller than the iPad Air with a 9-inch display and stereo speakers. Both run Android 5.0 Lollipop which has a new Material Design. The new products will go up against Apple’s iOS devices for global electronics consumers’ holiday shopping money.
However, one set of devices won’t be competing for Apple users’ shopping dollars. An Android Wear project manager told me that there were no current plans to make Android Wear compatible with iOS but that they were continuing to evaluate other platforms because they wanted to get Wear devices into as many hands as they could. When I pressed and said something to the effect of “if ever there was a time to sell these to Apple users, it was the holiday season before the Apple Watch is released”, the product manager said something akin to  “Our Christmas lineup of announcements is set and over”.
On one hand, it doesn’t seem like it would be that hard. After all, Google eventually got Google Glass to work on iOS devices.
Microsoft, on the other hand, just announced its new Fitness Band which will work with Android, iOS and of course Windows Phones.
Macworld today suggested that you take a $99 Pebble for a spin to see if it could act as a smartphone gateway drug until users get their Apple Watch fix next year. 
I will say that if you are contemplating getting an Android Wear device, the only one worth your time is the Moto 360. Most of you will obviously be better off waiting however.Filed under: iOS Devices Tagged: Android Wear, Apple watch, iOS Continue reading more about iOS Devices, iOS, and Apple watch at 9to5Mac.What do you think?

Google updates its official Analytics app with iPad support

- 9to5mac.com

Earlier this year, Google released an official app for its Google Analytics service on iOS allowing users of the popular service to view data and reports on the go, but the dedicated app has only been available for iPhone and iPod touch users. Today that has changed, however, as Google has updated its official Analytics app for full iPad support.
As you can see in the screenshots, the new iPad version of the Google Analytics app takes full advantage of the screen real estate by showing more charts, graph, and data in general. Here’s how Google describes the app:
Access all of your Google Analytics web and app data from your mobile device. Monitor recent changes with Real Time reports. Easily get your Analytics data anytime, anywhere.
Google Analytics for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch is available for free on the App Store, and you can learn more about the service here.Filed under: Apps Tagged: analytics, Google, Google Analytics, iPad Continue reading more about Apps, iPad, and Google at 9to5Mac.What do you think?

‘WatchSpring’ tweak brings functional Apple Watch-style layout to jailbroken iOS devices

- 9to5mac.com

Last week 9to5Mac‘s own Michael Steeber wrote about his idea for an Apple Watch-inspired home screen interface for the iPhone. Within a few days a developer had created a standalone app that simulated the interface, but due to Apple’s restrictions on iOS, there was no way to make it work as a true home screen replacement.
Now, a new jailbreak tweak called WatchSpring has actually brought this functionality to the iPhone. The modification replaces the current iPhone home screen with a fluid grid of circular icons that can be zoomed in or out to show as many apps as you’d like. It can also open apps natively (no need for URL schemes or anything like that), though it doesn’t seem to support folders just yet…
