* Added a UI to reply to messages from the phone too
* Added a sync adapter to integrate with the Android contacts app
* Photos / files can be shared from the phone to iMessage using the Android ACTION_SEND intent

Also had to move the server into a Mountain Lion VM until Apple fixes an annoying bug that stops the AppleScript handler from working after a while in Yosemite.

Replaced the strap on my Moto 360. Much more comfortable now!

 

My first hack for Android Wear: forwarding iMessages from my Mac to my Moto 360 using Google Cloud Messaging, and sending voice replies back via Node.js, with a splash of AppleScript to glue it all together: https://github.com/c99koder/wear-imessage

It's quite complicated to set up, and requires registering your own GCM API keys and running your own Node.js server on your Mac, so I wont be providing any binaries.

Come on, Google. Is this really the first impression you want to give people when they first power on their device?
