Unofficial WordPress App Released for Google Glass

Not too many people own Google Glass just yet, but the number is growing thanks to an open invite request signup page. And alongside the greater adoption, comes a greater number of cool things you can do with Glass.

We recently covered the release of the GDK, which helps developers create better apps for Glass than what was possible with the cloud-based Mirror API. While the GDK release enables a new class of more immersive local apps, that’s not to say that useful and innovative apps can’t be built with Mirror API.

Now thanks to an unofficial WordPress app by PR firm Webber Shandwick, you can post to any WordPress blog directly from Glass. The app naturally has a few limitations, and chief among them is the need for voice dictation for text entry. While functional, we can’t imagine too many people posting long essays #throughglass. In addition to text, users can also attach photos and videos into their blog posts. 

To get started, head over to the installation page for full instructions. Installation is a bit tedious, as it has you install a WordPress plugin, set up the Mirror API (if you haven’t already), and more. Luckily, there are plenty of screenshots to guide you along the way. Developers looking to learn how it was done should head over to the project’s GitHub.
