Official But Temporary Google Glass Distribution

google glass logoTimothy Jordan from Google announced on Google+ that Glass developers can now get their Glass Apps, i.e. Glassware, published officially on the MyGlass page.

Before, for developers to notify Google Glass users that they can use their app, they had to make a big splash in the press, post details in Glass discussion boards and submit their Glass apps to unofficially and poorly maintained Glass App directories. Now, Google is taking it on themselves to offer a temporary solution via the MyGlass page.

The MyGlass page is where Glass users can maintain their glass settings, wifi connections, contacts and turn on and off officially approved Google Glass Apps.

The thing is, it is a single page and it doesn't scale well for posting hundreds or thousands of apps. But for now, it is a good temporary solution.

Here is a screen shot of an approved Google Glass App, next to one that is not yet approved.

There are three differences:

(1) Apps that are approved by Google will show up in this list on MyGlass as off, unless you turn it on.
(2) Apps that are approved by Google will have a small icon on the app card.
(3) Apps that are not approved by Google will explicitly say so.

To submit your Glass app, you have to go here review the launch checklist and prepare your app for distribution. Then you can submit the app for Google review over here.

I plan on doing this for our several Glass apps we produced.
