Pocket Creates Developer SDK for Android Wear, Save Content Directly From Your Watch

Ever since the recent launch of Android Wear, most of the buzz surrounding it has been of the upcoming hardware, LG’s G Watch and Motorola’s Moto 360. Almost forgotten is the fact that soon after the Android Wear announcement, a preview SDK was also released for developers. One of the first developers to make use of this is the team behind the read-it-later Pocket service, having launched today a prototype of a service allowing users to save content for later with merely a swipe and a tap.

The proposed mini-app will allow users to save to Pocket, but won’t let them view the articles themselves. Much like many of Android Wear’s built-in services, this will initiate a service on your phone rather than on the watch itself.

Pocket’s prototype SDK has now been pushed to GitHub for our developer friends out there to implement in their own apps.

    Pocket just needs a phone widget. Otherwise perfect.

    Nice. Love Pocket.

    Pocket is an amazing service with developers who really get it. Kind of wish Google would buy them and incorporate Pocket into Google Keep, which sucks for just about everything but making lists.

    • JMonkeYJ

      It sucks for those, too, because you can’t sort the list (well, last I tried it anyway).

    I love that developers are embracing Android Wear and who doesnt love the ‘Moto 360’ hardware but I think Google NOW will be almost all I use on my watch. I don’t want a million energy consuming apps (I keep my phone pretty minimal too) so I doubt I would use the likes of Twitter, Instagram, or Pocket on my watch tho I use all 3 daily. Just my .02.

    I haven’t seen much buzz towards the G Watch as much as i’ve seen the buzz around the 360.
