So you’ve got an Android Wear device and now you’re looking for some Android apps to go along with it. We’ve got you covered. Our Watch This App column is designed to help educate readers in the various apps available for the platform and highlight the best of the bunch.

Watch This App: Wear Unlock

You know how much of a pain in the ass it is to unlock your phone over and over just to check your social media or the sports updates? Sure, that new watch alleviates some of the issue, but we still end up unlocking the handset far too many times a day.

Once you set this application up and pair it with your watch you’ll be able to bypass the lock screen. It’s not unlike the “trusted device” stuff that’s coming from Google and Android L later this year and it’s awesome.

You’ll need to disable the current security measure in place to get this to work properly; once you do you’ll be pleased as punch. It’s two bucks to download which means you’ll have to skip a coffee but it’s definitely worth the money.
