MyRoll Gallery now supports Android Wear

MyRoll gallery has been around for a few months now, offering a nice gallery replacement app with a nice UI and it bundles your photos together into Moments.

The developers have updated the app with a nice material style and rather interestingly they’ve added Android Wear support. So now you can take a picture on your phone and a card appears on your watch asking if you want to view the photo or delete the photo. I’m sure some of you will find a use for this.
Sometimes I’ll take a picture quickly, shoving my phone quickly back into my pocket, so having the ability to view it on my wrist is handy.

To try this out make sure you’ve got an Android Wear device paired up, install MyRoll Gallery from the link below, go into the settings and make sure Android Wear is ticked. Take a picture and the new card should appear on your watch. Enjoy.

MTV adds a live feed to its Android and iOS apps

You've been able to catch up with episodes of Jersey Shore through MTV's iOS and Android apps for around a year. But, if you wanted to gasp along with the action as it was broadcast, you'd have to make an appointment to take over the family TV. Thankfully, the reality channel has updated apps on both platforms to bring a live feed of both MTV and MTV2 to your device (assuming you have a participating pay-TV provider to log-in with). That said, we can't imagine anyone persisting with the feature for too long - those ad-breaks are a lot shorter when you're catching up.
