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.

Twitter Analytics and SMS Tweets with Twxter
Whether or not you actually Tweet for a living, you undoubtedly would like for your Tweets to be heard. And while you’re at it, you likely don’t want to be hindered by Internet connectivity issues when you have only one fleeting chance to send off your 140-character manifesto.
Luckily, XDA Senior Member alobo has an application that combines powerful analytics and the accessibility benefits of being able to send your Tweet via SMS when there’s no Internet connectivity, so that you can get your message out efficiently and make sure that it’s being heard.
Twxter, aptly named due to its text message Tweet functionality, offers a variety of powerful features. With regards to analytics, Twxter allows you to examine how many followers you have engaged, your viral reach, your Tweet engagement over time, your friend:follower ratio, and much more. In addition to analytics, Twxter also features a pleasant Holo interface complete with horizontal swipe navigation, seamless switching between SMS and Internet modes, user-selectable themes, and more.
With all this commercially applicable power, you’d be correct to think that this would normally be a paid application, as this application normally comes with a 30-day trial. However, alobo has been so kind as to share the application for free with the XDA community. To get started, simply head over to the application thread and install the application. Once you have it installed, post in the thread for a 100-year “trial” extension.
