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!

Put an End to Library Late Fees With Biblioholic for Android
You just remembered that your son had taken some books from the library and they were due a few days ago. Also, the fees for late returns may have just gone up in your public library. If this situation sounds familiar, then you really need to look into XDA member vesperaNovus‘s app. In essence, the app is a reminder type app, which will allow you to input as much information as you want for a book that you took out from the library. It will also remind you about the book’s due date before it happens. That way, you can stop wasting money on fees and such. The app also has the capability of notifying you via Twitter, so there is little to no excuse for being late any longer.
If you think this is a useful app or if you can think of anyway in which to improve it, the dev would love to get some feedback from you. So, please share your thoughts and findings.
Greetings. Tired of returning library books late? Biblioholic allows you to manage books you have checked out of a library system.

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...
