The way it is right now, it seems like each new day is bringing something new about Glass.
You already know that Google plans to bring its new Hangouts app to Glass in the future. Now there is information that some apps are to make their way to this maverick piece of tech – Evernote and Twitter, to name a few.
At the ongoing Google I/O 2013, The Verge learnt that a host of new apps, like Facebook, Twitter, Evernote, Tumblr, CNN and Elle, are coming to Glass. On the Twitter blog, the microblog's Engineering Manager Shiv Ramamurthi announced: “Today we’re bringing Twitter to Google Glass, making it easy for you to share photos and connect with people.”
Twitter comes to Google Glass
With Twitter on Glass, users will be able to share photos to the popular microblog. The tweet will automatically include the text: “Just shared a photo #throughglass”.
The app will also allow wearers stay in touch with those they follow on Twitter through notifications – for mentions, DMs and Tweets from users for whom they may have enabled notifications. They can then reply to, retweet or “favourite” these tweets.
As for Evernote on Glass, it will allow wearers to capture a photo or a short video and send it to their Evernote account from Glass' sharing menu. They can also choose a note from Evernote Web and send it directly to Glass' Timeline so they have it in their view for whenever they need it. Got Glass already?

Evernote goodness on Glass!
“We believe that wearables are the next frontier in consumer technology and we’re hard at work building the Evernote for our wearable technology future. Today, you’re getting a glimpse of simple and useful ways that Evernote can be used with Google Glass. This is only the beginning,” wrote Evernote's Andrew Sinkov in a blog post.
