Following a false start a couple of days ago, apps for Android Wear are now officially available from Google Play.

More are sure to follow soon, but in the meantime if you've already got an Android Wear device you can now sync recipes to your phone with Allthecooks Recipes, get gig alerts with Bandsintown Concerts and a whole lot more.

If you're not sure if it's worth jumping on board stay tuned, as we'll bring you reviews of all the key Android Wear hardware as soon as physically possible, though if you believe that watches should be round you might want to wait for the Moto 360 in any case.
