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!

[CONTEST] XDA Developer TV 100,000 Subscribers Contest – Win a Nexus 7
XDA Developer TV, our YouTube channel, has seen tremendous growth in the past year. We will be reaching our 100,000th subscriber soon. We decided that the best way to celebrate would be to hold a contest. We will be giving away two Nexus 7 tablets. And, both contests are open to our international followers.
This contest will have two parts. We will give one of the 100,000 subscribers a Nexus 7. So if you are not subscribed, go ahead and jump on over to the XDA Developer TV channel page and subscribe. This part of the contest will be open until the 100,000 subscriber milestone is reached.
Fear not current subscribers, we would not be here without your support! So to win the second Nexus 7 all you have to do is share your favorite XDA Developer TV video on your social networks. If you share it on Google+, Twitter, and Facebook on the same day, that counts as three entries. You are eligible for one entry per Social Network per day, so enter daily. Make sure to mention us in the post, or we won’t see your entry and it will not be included. At the conclusion of the contest period we will randomly select an entry. This part of the contest will be open until 11:59PM GMT Friday, March 15th 2013. The winner will be announced on March 18th’s News Recap with Jordan.
NOTE: The second part prize winners will be selected at random by XDA Administration and their selection is final. This is a social media contest, must participate on the specified social media network to be qualified to win. No purchase necessary. XDA Developer TV and XDA management reserves the right to change, alter or cancel this contest at any time without notice.

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...
SlimRoms' website has been experiencing technical difficulties for the last month or so, but it's good to know the team is working hard and is still on top of things.
