Mad Genius Coaxes Android Wear Into Running Nintendo 64 And PlayStation Portable Game Emulators

Before we start, let's get one thing out of the way: there's no practical application for the apps demonstrated below, at least not in the way they're being used. You can't seriously play a game meant for a 20-button controller on a screen smaller than two inches across, even if your fingers are tiny enough to hit the virtual buttons. This is the work of an enthusiast gamer and Android fan. It doesn't have to make sense.

Alright, now that that's out of the way: YouTube user Hacking Jules would like you to see his collection of game emulators running on Android Wear.

[Hands On] Custom Quick Settings Adds New Tiles To The Android 6.0 Quick Settings Via UI Tuner

Android 6.0 has a lot of cool features, most of which are enabled out of the box. You don't have to go turn on doze mode or app backups, but the system UI tuner is another story. You might not even know it's there without being told. Once it's enabled, you can make tweaks to the system UI elements that weren't possible in earlier versions of Android.

Now, an app called Custom Quick Settings is on the scene to take advantage of the UI tuner. Using this app, you can create your own quick settings tiles that open apps, toggle settings, and launch websites.

AOL Releases Alto Mail, A Multi-Service Inbox That Manages Your Mail With Automatic Tags Plus Image And Attachment Views

When you think of the intersection between America Online and email, you probably think of the phrase "you've got mail," septuagenarians forwarding politically-charged but factually lacking messages, and/or Meg Ryan. But AOL Mail is still going strong, and it looks like the company is actually trying to branch out into mobile software. Take Alto Mail, for example: it's a new stand-alone mail client just published in the Play Store alongside more antiquated options like AIM and AOL On.

Gravity-Defying Puzzle Game 'In Between' Has Fantastic Hand-Drawn Art And Animation

At the moment pixelated faux-retro graphics are all the rage, partly because they're trendy, partly because they don't require lots of hardware resources to implement, and (let's be honest) partly because they're easier for developers to create than high-resolution 2D sprites. So occasionally it's nice to see a game like In Between, which bucks the trend with both characters and backgrounds that are completely unique and drawn by hand. Check out the trailer below to see what I mean:

The Amazon Appstore Offers 33 Free Apps And Games Worth $70+ For Halloween

Apple's Second Ever Android App Is All About The Music (As Long As You Play It On The Beats Pill+ Speaker)

Nope, Apple Music still isn't available on Android (though it's being actively tested). Instead, the second Android app that Cupertino has officially published is in support of the hardware half of its Beats acquisition. It's a companion and pairing app for the Beats Pill+, the latest revision of Beats' portable Bluetooth speaker. That's it. That's all. There isn't any more.

WSJ: Google Plans To Merge Chrome OS Into Android, Form Single New OS In 2017 [Update]

A debate has waged since Chrome OS started appearing on Chromebooks. It can be summed up as: This is nice Google, but why don't you combine it with Android? Well, according to a report by The Wall Street Journal, it looks like Google is getting ready to do just that.

Chrome OS will fold into Android. Android will better adapt to PCs. By 2017, the two will form a single, new operating system with access to the Play Store. Google reportedly plans to show off an early version sometime next year.
