    Default Too many swipes to get to desired app?

    I was watching a YouTube demo video. Google Now and Google Voice look impressive, but is there a way too shrink the apps to 4 smaller size per screen for easy access like the Gear 2? So far, it seems there are too many unnecessary swipes needed.

    If it's an Android Wear app you can launch it by saying "Ok, Google, Launch Evernote" (or whatever app). The screen swipes are somewhat more involved but still not a big deal. It's not a phone screen, thus you don't want to place full-time icons there. At some point maybe they'll implement some sort of gesture shortcuts to launch an app, but it's still OK to me.

    Seems that someone has agreed with you and has released an Android Wear app to do just what you described:

    Great, seems like it would help. Too many swipes can be too cumbersome. Why do extra steps if you don't need to?

    Mini Launcher has made me go from wanting to throw this watch out the window to really enjoying it.

    I don't know if it's correct, but I always feel that adding "always on" apps like this will cause a battery drain. I'm curious as to whether that's the case here. Definitely a convenient app.
