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...
New App For Android Determines Whether or Not You Should Wear Pants
The most important question when waking up in the morning is whether or not you should wear pants. Logic (and the law) typically answer that question for us, but in some cases, the weather plays a factor—like when it’s below freezing outside, it’s probably a good idea to wear pants. Now, there is an application that gives you clothing tips based on the weather outside.
XDA Forum Member Floppie7th, along with a developer team, developed an application called “Should I Wear Pants?” and it’s actually pretty useful. Despite the comical name, it’s actually a weather application with a very unique customization. As Floppie7th explains:
“Should I Wear Pants?” is a novelty weather app that takes your location, gender, and temperature preferences, retrieves your local weather, and lays out for you what to wear.
Here are some of the features:
Jacket versus T-shirt
Pants versus shorts
Temperature preferences for all available slots
Temperature units preference – Fahrenheit, Celsius, and Kelvin
Optionally, fun holiday outfits on major holidays (US holidays, that is – for those outside the US, we’re open to adding outfits for your holidays, we just don’t have them yet)
This is a very nifty application that puts an end to those days when you have to open the back door and take a half-step outside to see how cold it is. Based on the weather and temperature, the app lets you know what you would wear based on your preferences. How cool is that?
For more details, check out the application thread.

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...
