Mini Maps for Wear [ALPHA]

Mini Maps for Wear [ALPHA]


[ALPHA RELEASE]

A mini map for your Android Wear smart watch, pannable like Google Maps and powered by the Google Static Maps API. When opened, it should jump to your current GPS location if you have signal.

Double-tap the screen to re-center to your current location (requires GPS signal).
Long-press OR palm over your watch face to close the application.

This is intended to be a DEMO of what can be done with Android Wear, not a final product. Consider this an ALPHA release. Occasional glitches may occur and reports would be appreciated. If you find your watch not receiving data, try restarting Bluetooth on your phone (known occasional issue).

Future releases will be more polished once I start to iron out all the glitches. I am making this open source and welcome contributions from developers.

Keep the updates coming! Nice! But unstable (blacks out) in poorer network conditions. Good for an alpha release though! (and that's what this claims to be, so that's how it should be judged. Hence 5 stars!
