Developing Native Google Glass Apps

Developing Native Google Glass Apps

Google has two APIs / SDKs available in Developer Preview or Sneak Peek status for working with Google Glass. The first is the Google Glass Mirror API, which is a cloud based RESTful interface for sending “cards” to the Google Glass timeline from remote servers. The second is the Glass Development Kit, which builds onto the Android SDK for developing apps that run directly on Glass. These apps can also take advantage of the Android NDK to incorporate native code. Since it builds on the Android SDK, you don’t need it for native app development, but it does expose some nice additional features.

Appmethod and RAD Studio from Embarcadero Technologies support Android app development, including support for native Google Glass apps. You can use your choice of C++ or Object Pascal programming languages. The support is based on both the Android SDK and NDK. Once the Android ADB driver is loaded for Google Glass, you can target it just like any other Android device. This article walks through the ins and outs of Google Glass development with RAD Studio. The demos in this article are in Object Pascal and refer to RAD Studio, but everything you see here also works with C++, or the individual C++Builder and Delphi products (with the Mobile Add-On Pack). Likewise, most of this will work with Appmethod as well. You can download a free 30-day license for RAD Studio or Appmethod to follow along with the steps in this article.

Embarcadero is hosting a full day online conference focused on C++ mobile development.Embarcadero is hosting a full day online conference focused on C++ mobile development. The full day conference is free to attend and will take place on June 4th. It will cover Android and iOS development using C++, and also writing single source applications for both platforms, taking advantage of the latest C++Builder and of the FireMonkey framework.

Content, list of sessions, and all information about the event is at . I’m not giving any sessions because taht day I’ll be on planes for most of the conference time, while flying back home from California (where I’lll be flying to tomorrow).

To sign up for the event (again, it is free) sign up at If you use C++, don’t miss this opportunity to learn about native C++ development for mobile platforms. And if you don’t use C++, pass this invite to your C++ friends. Or your friends who are into mobile development.
