Link Bubble updated with... Android Wear support?

Link Bubble has been upgraded to version 1.3, which brings a plethora of improvements, changes and bug fixes. But there is one addition that is a bit odd - Android Wear support.
July 29, 2014

Link Bubble quickly became a favorite among multi-tasking and browsing apps, allowing users to open links in what looks like a Facebook chat heads. That is the summarized explanation – those who wish to learn more about this app can find enlightenment at our Link Bubble review. Today we would like to focus on how the latest update makes this application even better.

Link Bubble has been upgraded to version 1.3, which introduces a plethora of improvements, changes and bug fixes. There is one addition that is a bit odd, though – Android Wear support. Don’t get us wrong, we are more than happy to see a handful of developers supporting our new favorite smartwatch platform, but it’s odd to think that a browser application can take advantage of Android Wear.


It’s actually not as complicated as it seems. Link Bubble sends text content to your Android Wear device, giving you a clean read from your wrist. This is, of course, if Link Bubble is able to extract the article content. Formats and other factors may affect compatibility. Link Bubble did right by making this feature text only. Obviously, Android Wear devices are not meant for internet browsing, and no one should try to make them such products.

Other improvements include the ability to hide a Link Bubble via the notification. This will leave the software running while not staying visible, which could be benefitial for, say, playing YouTube audio without looking at the video. Android L support, animations and Incognito Mode have all been improved, making for an overall better experience. And you can’t forget your fair share of bug fixes, which are definitely present.

The update can be had by downloading it straight from the Google Play Store. By the way, those who have been contemplating getting the Pro version should jump on the latest limited time offer. You can currently buy Link Bubble Pro for just $2.49 (50% off)!
