From Marketing Land:

    It has a long, long way to go to rival app stores like those for Android and iOS (and I doubt it’ll ever rival their size, actually), but the Google Glass app landscape is finally starting to show signs of life. There are hundreds of apps available for Glass, but the majority of them haven’t […]
