Google shows off Glass apps: New York Times, Gmail and more

Google just took some time at SXSW to show off Google Glass, and it’s taken the lid off some apps that are currently in the works. As it turns out, Page and Co. have been working with the New York Times to build an app. Just ask for some news and the Glass will deliver a headline, a byline and an accompanying image. What’s more is that users can tap on a new item and have the eyewear read the story’s text aloud. The duo are also testing a breaking news feature where notifications regarding fresh news will appear as they’re published. Gmail also got some time in the limelight with its very own application. An email sender’s image and subject line will appear on the device’s screen, and users can reply by dictating their messages.

Evernote and Skitch are also getting some love from the folks in Mountain View with the ability to share images taken with Glass.
