“We are very excited to make the SGM app available on both Apple iTunes and Google Play,” said Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix. “Enabling support on Apple’s iOS platform and now being downloadable from both Apple iTunes and Google Play makes it very easy to enable and control Vuzix Smart Glasses features on both platforms.

Being on both stores will make the Vuzix Smart Glasses that much easier to enable for all of our customers.”
