MyGlass app lets you control Google Glass via your phone

An update to the MyGlass app allows Google Glass users to remotely control their high-tech specs from an Android device.

Google Glass owners can now control the interface by swiping and tapping their way on an Android phone or tablet via the MyGlass app.

Updated Thursday in the Google Play story, MyGlass offers an altenative to Google Glass owners who may not always want to nod their head or speak a command to control the device. The app takes advantage of screencast, which lets you and other people peek at what you're seeing through your Glass display. You can then touch, swipe, and tap on your Android device to directly control Google Glass.

Android users can install the app, but without Google Glass it won't do anything. As Google points out on the app's Google Play page: "If you don't have Glass, then downloading this will be a waste of time. Sorry about that. But if you swipe the screenshots to the right you'll see there's a picture of a puppy in pajamas. So not a total waste of time after all."

However, some Google+ users say they can't get the remote control to work, leading to speculation that a Google Glass update may be needed to enable the new feature.
