Want to tweet from your wrist? Android Wear can (now) do that

Perhaps you’d like to regale your Twitter followers with nothing more than a voice command to your wrist? Well, wait no(t much) longer; while Twitter is yet to port their app to the Android Wear platform, a third party developer has released an app called Bunting to meet your needs.

Bunting works fairly simply; install the app on your phone, and sign in to your desired Twitter account. Once you’re in, you can use a simple ‘Ok Google’ command to send your tweet. Check it out in the video below:

I’m sure it won’t be too long before we can do all sorts of things from Android Wear, including checking into places on Facebook, leaving a post on Google+, as well as all the things it can already do like initiate phone calls, send SMS, send emails and more.

If you’re keen to install it before your Android Wear shows up this week, check it out:

The app was not found in the store. 🙁

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
