Google adds temporary workaround to enable paid apps on Android Wear

When some apps aren't transferring to your newly-purchased Google toy, you're probably going to get a little upset. That's exactly what happened with paid apps from Android's Google Play, which were happily installing to phones, just not Bluetooth-paired G Watch and Gear Live. The company's come up with a workaround for now which requires paid app makers to manually package files differently. Android Developers said (via Google+, of course) that it's working to make this easier in the future. Now, Android Wear's early adopters will simply have to wait for the app developers to make those manual changes.
