Samsung galaxy gear with awesome updates for app notification

Galaxy Gear smartwatch received its first firmware update from Samsung. The update wasn’t anything too special, but now that the official Gear Manager application has been updated as well, the smartwatch just got a whole lot more useful.

With the updated Manager, you can choose your Hangouts, Gmail, WhatsApp, and anything else you might want. This is the way it should have been when first launched.

A few days ago, we told you about the ATN Manager app developed by an XDA developer, which enabled viewing the full content of a particular notification on the Galaxy Gear for almost any app. Well, you won’t be needing ATN Manager anymore, as an update to the Gear Manager app has brought official support for viewing just about every notification on the smart watch in full detail.

The Gear Manager update follows a firmware update for the Gear, and will now let you select which app sends a notification to the watch. From standard texts, emails, app  you can now enable or disable each individually from showing up on the watch (with the option to press a button to view the particular notification on your phone)

The Galaxy Gear has been criticized for not offering too many features or functions, but it’s clear Samsung is working hard and fast to make it better, and the latest update is an awesome one that every Gear use will welcome with open arms. The Gear Manager update should be available for you on the Samsung Apps store, so go ahead, update and take your Galaxy Gear one step closer to being that smart watch we had hoped it would be from the start.

    When will this new update come out? It appears I’m on version 1.5.120903 however I don’t have the , “more notification” option. Any help to have the latest version with this option would be appreciated.

    Thank you
