Google Glass has released it’s iOS version of MyGlass but shortly after, removed the app claiming it was an ‘app store mishap’.

The app was released prematurely according to Google however, we suspect that this accidental leak was nothing more than a publicity stunt.

In the iOS app it was revealed that users could take a photo using Glass by simply winking.

The wink and snap photo feature has come under scrutiny as many feel that it violates public privacy.

Google had this to say-

We’re starting with pictures, but just think about what else is possible. Imagine a day where you’re riding in the back of a cab and you just wink at the meter to pay. You wink at a pair of shoes in a shop window and your size is shipped to your door. You wink at a cookbook recipe and the instructions appear right in front of you –- hands-free, no mess, no fuss. Pretty cool, right?

The iOS app also revealed a lock screen feature that requires a specific set of taps and wipes to enable the device.
