I have been using +Google Glass for well over a year and am for the most part quite happy with the possibilities that this form factor opens us up to. With this said, I have a short Wish List of some features I would love to see added. 

Material Design – I like the current Google Glass UI, it is clean and works well. However after seeing the demo of Material Design at Google IO, I fell in love and was blown away when I got my LG G Watch. I would love to see Material Design creep its way onto Glass.

Mirror API Access – I would love to see this opened up in the same way other Google APIs are. There is currently a 1000 daily limit and requesting more requires application approval. I understand approving applications that are listed on the Glassware page but I fail to understand these limits for Glassware that are not listed. 

Expanded Camera Functions – Glass is essentially a Nexus device and it actually has one of the best performing cameras of all of the Nexus phones. I would love to see native panorama, lenseblur and photosphere support added to Glass. (I know that Google+ Auto Awsome helps with panorama) 

*Compose” – I would love to see an option to compose an E-Mail or Google Plus post without the need to send a photo along with it. 

Google Goggles – This has been a long time coming. We need Google Goggles support.

Expanded Bluetooth Functions –  I would love to be able to connect Glass to A2DP bluetooth devices such as the car stereo or Bluetooth Headphones to allow music streaming from Glass. When driving, Glass’s hands free “Listen To” would be perfect for long road trips. This also leaves the USB port open to keep Glass charged. 

Performance – Many users who have the older version of Glass report that their devices are pretty much unusable due to the lag. I also had this problem. Ever since Kit Kat was pushed to Glass, performance has taken a step back. I would hope that performance improves on the older XE-C models of Glass. 

Toggles – When I am on the road, there is no need for Glass to scan for WiFi. This has a small impact on battery life.
