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...
CPU Usage & Frequency Monitor (Dual Core Support)
As first dual core processors are arriving, so the apps optimized for them. Because of this, having an app to monitor both cores is becoming more of a necessity. With this in mind, XDA member optic76 shows CPU usage monitor, which has been optimized to have low overhead and memory footprint. It displays in the status bar and is compatible with Dual CPU core which is a must these days. The developer warns that some dual core devices do not use both cores all the time so when your device is using one core, the app reports this status until load increases to the point where your device starts using the 2nd core.. The application can be found for free with ads on the market.
If you are using it, please let the developer know about any bugs so they can be fixed on future versions.

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...
