Android 5.0 has undoubtedly been the main topic on every Android fanboy’s mind ever since its completed source release just six days ago. That said, there’s still quite a bit going on in the Android world aside from Lollipop. Last week, we talked a little bit about the open source CASUALWear watch face tool that lets users customize their Android Wear smartwatches to a great degree. Now, we’re here to share another tool for Google’s wearables platform.

Android Wear APK Tools by XDA Senior Member nagasgura is a GUI-based app that allows you to install APKs and uninstall any non-protected package directly from your computer. This works through ADB, and as such, it is much more convenient than using the actual command line if you’ve got a lot of installing and uninstalling to do.

The tool works on Windows, Linux, and Mac. And usage is as simple as you’d expect. Once ADB is enabled and the device is connected, the app shows you a list of installed apps and allows you to uninstall them with just a few clicks, or optionally install new APKs.

If you’ve got an Android Wear and you do a lot of app installation and uninstallation via ADB, optimize the process by visiting the Android Wear Tools application thread.
