Google Play now has a section for Android Wear apps

Android Wear

A new section has been added to Google Play to house all the Android Wear apps. Check out the growing list here.

At the time of writing, there’s 21 apps listed in there – hopefully this will grow as Android Wear devices make it out to consumers.

While this section is welcome, judging by the URL it does seem to be a simple curated promotion list – like other themed sales and promotions that are often run around major events like Australia Day. Still, some promotion is better than the approach Google took when they first introduced Android to tablets and didn’t do anything to promote tablet-specific apps in the Play Store.

Hopefully Google will evolve this over time to better denote Android Wear integration on app listings and allow users to search and filter by Android Wear compatibility.

Have any of these Android Wear apps caught your eye? Which apps would you like to see? Tell us in the comments!

Before discovering the Nexus One, Jason thought he didn't need a smartphone. Now he can't bear to be without his Android phone. Jason hails from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane depending on his mood and how detailed a history you'd like. A web developer by day with an interest in consumer gadgets and electronics, he also enjoys reading comics and has a worryingly large collection of Transformers figures. He'd like to think he's a gamer, but his Wii has been in a box since he moved to Sydney, and his PlayStation Vita collection is quite lacking. Most mornings you'll find him tilting at various windmills on Twitter - follow @JM77 and say hi!
