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! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
CHTSLoco – Shows Location in CHT for WM
XDA member MichelDiamond presents this interesting add on for your Windows Mobile device that will let you have your updated GPS location in Cookie Home Tab 2 by detecting via GSM-CellTowers. This probably will be on your device already but if it´s not, it is worth to have. The developer mentions that no additional battery drain in Lookup mode since cell towers don’t need a GPS or Internet Connection to get these numbers. Working only for GSM devices using CHT2.
You can also find on the original thread some great sets of original icons to personalize your device called loco icons.

A new ADD-ON for CHT as public Beta, that you have something to play with over Christmas. Therefor released as “Xmas-Beta”
Please read the prejudices before installing!
CHTSLoca is an easy-to-use-App, which can detect your Location because of GSM-CellTowers and display them as CHT-Icon.
Later (not now) this will be extended with other location awareness things and is also responsible then for switching profiles because of current Location in CHTS.
For now: It displays in a very nice way your locations. Here you see the Screenshot of the Main configuration page of CHTSLoco and besides a resizeable Freelink in CHT

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
