None of these problems matter, though
While social media's first development forays into Glass are disappointing, we can't be too critical of these apps. Only a few thousand developers, journalists and celebrities will ever use these apps, which are really nothing more than proofs-of-concept, and should be reviewed as such. Glass still isn't ready for mainstream audiences, and these apps will certainly change dramatically by the time the headset hits store shelves, which probably won't happen until early next year.
But one nice thing about Glass apps is that they're silently updated in the background, so it's possible my complaints have already been addressed and remedied by the time you read this. If you're one of the lucky few in possession of Glass, and need a way to justify your rather spendy investment, I suggest activating these apps for your own Glass, and making your friends jealous by posting updates from your face.
