Haha, I'm sorry but why on earth would you have an error screen as one of your main screenshots that displays the apps functionality. "Connection Error". For that matter "Loading..." seems a bit odd too. This honestly looks like satire but I don't think it was intended to be so.

That aside to leave a real comment: I'm really pleased to see how simple the code is for these apps. I wasn't aware they could be written with Javascript. It seems more and more people are turning to JS as the scripting languages for most abstractions, i.e. google spreadsheets coding is in JS. Microsoft native apps are in JS. Pebble etc.. I wonder if Pebble is actually running V8 in the background or what they do.

Regardless good work!

Consider removing the error and loading screens from your presentation of the app. As well as fixing the consistency of the indentation in your code. But otherwise these are exciting times!


Huh, I think you are right! Just removed these screenshots. Thank you for your suggestion. :)


ahaha no problem, I wasn't trying to be mean I actually thought it was really funny, it looked like you were joking around :) Again good work!


Nice work. Lyft has official Android Wear support which is pretty cool. Telling your watch to call you a car gets me every time.


this is awesome
