Android Wear Mini Launcher Solves Problems With Third Party Apps on Watches
Google didn’t tailor Android Wear with smartphones in mind and they didn’t simply port the UI from a smartphone to the watches. They saw no reason in doing that, especially since the screens are small on Android Wear devices. This means that third party apps have problems on the current design, but no longer, thanks to the Android Wear Mini launcher.
Usually on vanilla Android Wear you are required to use a voice command or scroll through a list if you want to find an app and launch it, be it Evernote, Lyft, Duolingo or any other app. If you install the Wear Mini Launcher, you will get an app drawer that shows all the apps icons like the phone does.
This solves the app searching issue, which is great considering that the voice command doesn’t exactly bring up the searched software. If you install the Wear Mini launcher, then you’ll get an app drawer that can be accessed by swiping from the top left edge of the screen. It can be downloaded right now from the Google Play and performance varies depending on the device.
