You can now Pair an Android Wear Smartwatch to your iPhone

When you think of Android, the word ‘iPhone’ comes to mind only like an antonym, but Google wants it to be a synonym, at least when it comes to its Android Wear product. Google has now announced iOS support to its smartwatch platform by launching the official Android Wear mobile app in Apple’s App Store.

What better way to compete with the Apple Watch than to make the iPhone compatible with Android Wear smartwatches? Rolling out today on iTunes, the app will work with the iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6, or 6 Plus running at least iOS 8.2. David Singleton, Director of Engineering, Android Wear, said the following regarding the release: android wear iphone

When you wear something every day, you want to be sure it really works for you. That’s why Android Wear offers countless design choices, so you can find the watch that fits your style. Want a round watch with a more classic look? Feel like a new watch band? How about changing things up every day with watch faces from artists and designers? With Android Wear you can do all of that.

However, for the time being, Android Wear for iOS only works with the LG Watch Urbane, but support is coming for Android Wear watches from Huawei, Asus, and Motorola, as well. Despite this, there are already reports claiming that the app works perfectly fine on the Moto 360 or the regular LG G Watch version.

Google also recommends that you download the latest Android Wear version for your Android watch in order for the experience usage to be as pristine as possible. The Android Wear app brings notifications from all your iPhone apps, information from Google Now, Google Fit support, alarms, and pretty much all the features that are already available for Android users.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Another SEO tool drops the word “SEO”

This guest post is by Majestic’s Marketing Director, Dixon Jones, who explains the reasons for their recent name change.
Majestic, the link intelligence database that many SEOs have come to use on a daily basis, has dropped the “SEO” from it’s brand and from its domain name, to become majestic.com. Since most people won’t have used Google’s site migration tool before, here’s what it looks like once you press the “go” button:

In actual fact – there’s a minor bug in the tool. The address change is to the https version of majestic.com (which GWT makes us register as a separate site) but that message incorrectly omits that. Fortunately, elsewhere in GWT its clear the omission is on Google’s side, not a typo from the SEO. It is most likely that the migration tool was developed before the need for Google to have separate verification codes for http and https versions of the site.
The hidden costs of a name change
There were a few “nay sayers” on Twitter upset that Majestic might be deserting it…
