Hands-on: Facebook and Twitter's Glass apps let you post from your face

Armando Rodriguez | May 20, 2013
Two new Glass apps from social media's biggest players let you share photos to a service other than Google+. But that's about it.

None of these problems matter, though
While social media's first development forays into Glass are disappointing, we can't be too critical of these apps. Only a few thousand developers, journalists and celebrities will ever use these apps, which are really nothing more than proofs-of-concept, and should be reviewed as such. Glass still isn't ready for mainstream audiences, and these apps will certainly change dramatically by the time the headset hits store shelves, which probably won't happen until early next year.

But one nice thing about Glass apps is that they're silently updated in the background, so it's possible my complaints have already been addressed and remedied by the time you read this. If you're one of the lucky few in possession of Glass, and need a way to justify your rather spendy investment, I suggest activating these apps for your own Glass, and making your friends jealous by posting updates from your face.
