Default Apps (or lack of)

Are any fellow Gear users slightly disappointed by the lack of new apps appearing in the official Samsung store? Like, I'd love a Spotify app that showed the name of the track/album art etc...

I know unless I can program (which I can't), it's not going to happen. It seems the update for dev's is really slow :/

I just got the gear 2 days ago and I expected much more from sammy. Altho I should have learned my lesson getting the note 1 opening day and I was in this very same situation, awesome new device that might as be a paper weight. The few apps there are are littered with bad reviews or they are the pointless. Sucks

samsung store has been empty since day one. i do not expect it to change anytime soon. there is still no official SDK available to developers. we can make apps for android that will work on gear by sideloading, but we can't use all of it's features..

An SDK will not come any time soon.... Only to selected partners Sammie choose...

It is Sad but it is how it is ...

Considering how powerful the hardware is, Sammy should be really pushing this with an SDK. Unless they are planning to load the gear up with missile blasting codes, they should cut the secrecy and get everyone to start developing, or hang around while iWatch or Pebble 2 or Google Watch or whatever comes and takes away the advantage.
