Facebook has also jumped on the Glass app bus by releasing its own Facebook for Glass app. The app is currently limited in functionality compared to what is capable on the other mobile apps or the desktop version, but it's seen as an initial offering by the company, a stepping stone towards a future version.

Pictures can easily be shared on one's Timeline, with the caption being added simply by speaking the information aloud. Right now, however, users can't tag people in the picture, at least not from Glass. To tag, you'll need to grab your smartphone or notebook and use one of the better offerings.

"We look forward to exploring Facebook experiences across new types of mobile devices. This is only a first step," Facebook's Erick Tseng said in a blog post.

It makes sense that all of these apps are debuting today. After all, today is the second day of Google I/O and Glass is one of Google's big pushes this year.
