Using Google Glass with an iPhone isn’t quite as good of an experience compared to using it with Android. This simple little workaround, however, can get iPhone owners all of their notifications on Google Glass.
Google took a few months off from regularly scheduled Google Glass software updates but this month brings a big one: Glass is getting KitKit and several new usability improvements. Gone, however is the video calling for now.
Google is expanding the Glass Explorer program to those who want in. For a limited time on April 15, anyone in the U.S. over the age of 18 and willing to spend $1,500 can get Google Glass.
With Google’s new Glass at Work program, look for apps to help businesses and enterprises. Perhaps Glass is a better fit for these organizations; there are certainly good consumer uses but Android Wear will help with those.
Looking for a night out at the movies but not sure what to watch? Just head over to the theater with Google Glass and a new app called Preview. Then you can view trailers of each flick simply by looking at the movie posters.
Bad vision plus Google Glass typically means spending $225 on special Glass frames. Or you could just spend a buck and custom 3-D print clips to attach Google Glass to your existing glasses.

Google is reportedly discussing some type of partnership with VSP Global, a vision care provider that also makes lenses and frames. The company could be helpful in creating new frame looks for Google Glass as well as prescription lenses.
Over the next few weeks, owners of Google Glass can invite up to three others to the Explorer program. Google also has some slightly different Glass hardware coming that will accept lenses; current owners can swap out their device if they want.
Google Glass for gaming? Yup, Google’s wearable computer may be used for fun and games based on this example app which brings real-time in-game GPS to your eye.
