Shopping App Shop X Drops Off The Official Google Glassware List

Mar 16th 2015 at 10:29 PM

Google Glassware list recently crossed 100 apps with the addition of three new apps but it is not all Golden in Google Glass land. Google Glass has been in the news quite a bit lately since the word spread out that developers are stopping work on Google Glass apps. Sterling Udell recently also wrote an amazing piece about the death of Google Glass which you can read here.

Last Wednesday, Ryan Kopinsky, the cofounder of Shop X, announced on Google+ that they are ending development for Shop X. Shop X, the shopping list creating Glassware for Google Glass, had been available as official Glassware since June 2014 and now has been officially removed from the Glassware list. Here is the official response from Ryan Kopinsky:

It was a great experience developing Shop X for Glass but we couldn't justify keeping the app running anymore. The monthly costs outweighed the monthly active users by a lot. I hope that Google will be more transparent in the future by giving the developers statistics on monthly active users for the Glass platform. In addition, by giving us insight in where they see the platform going, it would take away some of the risk of developing for something as new and uncertain as Glass.For more hot-sale information about Candle Stick Series Glassware,Hot sale Candle Stick Series Glassware you can search our official website and buy Candle Stick Series Glassware. I have not given up on Glass and I sincerely hope people continue to experiment with the platform.

With Shop X gone from the official Glassware list, the current list of Glassware stands at 102 apps. Shop X is the second app that has been removed from the Glassware list (Twitter was the first one) and hopefully is the last one. Google Glass relies on third-party apps and it seems like lately it is not going too well for the developers working on Google Glass apps.
