Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way!

ROM Quiz Lets You Prove Your Android Prowess
Have you ever gotten into an argument with your fellow flashaholics about who knows the most about the Android ROM and customization scene? Have you ever wanted to share with the outside world, the proof of your knowledge and dominance? Well, thanks to XDA Recognized Developer joeykrim, you can.
Joeykrim, the creator of Flash Image GUI, Root Checker, WiMAX Key Checker, and more, has now created ROM Quiz which “allows users a fun and exciting way to test their knowledge on everything ROM related for Android devices. Scores are stored online allowing users to compare/rank themselves against other users!” A couple of the app features are:
- Badges: After completing a quiz, take your user id and check out the badges section where personal badges are generated displaying your results! The personal badges make sharing quiz results easy, simple and convenient!
- Results: Quiz results are publicly available for all to compare, compete and share. At the beginning of the quiz the user is able to select anonymous results displayed using a numeric User ID OR a filtered version of their account name.
Check out the application thread and start testing your knowledge of Android and ROMs.
