Pinterest comes to Android Wear, alerts you to nearby pins


Earlier today, Google announced that it's releasing an SDK for its new Android Wear platform, allowing developers to make apps for Android smartwatches. It looks like Pinterest got a head start, though: The wedding planning bookmarking app is about to update its Android app to work with Android wearables. In particular, if you're near a place you've pinned, you'll get an alert on either your Android phone, tablet or smartwatch. From there, you can get directions too, if you're lost (even though in theory you're already close by). The update -- version 3.0, to be exact -- will hit the Play Store sometime tomorrow. So be ready for that, even though we suspect most of you were not lucky enough to get a free watch at Google I/O today.
