Apps for the Samsung Galaxy Gear

Friday, March 28th, 2014

A friend of mine has an original Samsung Galaxy Gear smart watch and was bemoaning the lack of apps.  So, like any good developer, I’ve written a couple!  Simple things first, of course.  Click the icons to download the APK files.

First, a calculator. Yes, strangely the Gear did not include one.


The second is a dice rolling app for table top role playing games.  It does a single die roll for 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 20, and 100 sided dice.  Simply tap the buttons to roll! Fast and easy to use.


To install, you’ll need the Android ADB installed.  Then you can simply connect your gear using a USB cable and your cradle and use the command: adb -d install GearCalc.apk to install the calculator or adb -d install Dice.apk to install the dice app.
