Google Provides Workaround for Developers to Enable Paid Apps on Android Wear

Earlier in the week, developers hoping to make an early splash (and buck) on Android Wear through releases of their own paid apps ran into a roadblock. The wearable APK packaged in their paid app wasn’t able to be extracted or read by the wearable installer, so basically, paid apps weren’t working at all on Android Wear devices. As you can imagine, that’s not a good thing.

Thankfully, Google has created an official workaround that was announced late last night through their developer blog. While I’m no developer, it doesn’t look to be the most intense manual procedure, but it is a “manual” workaround that will require an extra bit of work. Google is recommending that developers move the embedded wearable APK in their apps into a new directory (res/raw) for the time being, along with an xml file that points to the location of the APK. 

You can find the full instructions at the source below. Google did not that they are “working to make this easier for you in the future,” developers.

    They “did note” not “did not”.

    But this is good news. I can’t wait for moto 360

        It causes confusion in this case. Should it be “did note” or “did not say”?

      • Taylor Abrahamson

        I’m not trying to be rude and point out error like I could do any better. I just want to point it out so it can be edited really quick, for the benefit of the readers who haven’t read the article yet. My bad.

    This picture reminds me of the pictures you take with the phone face down in a pile of rocks and sand.

      You gotta do something to make that thing not look so plain! Lol now release that 360 already!

      • Robert Paulson

        the 360 couldn’t fit in the inside of the cup because it is so large and unwieldy.
