[Hands-on] PixWing - Flying Retro Pixel Arcade, an enjoyable callback to simpler times

PixWing - Flying Retro Pixel Arcade has recently released onto the Play Store and boy have I been having quite a lot of fun with it. It is an arcade flying game that brings back a lot of fond memories of flying around in Pilotwings or Nights into Dreams. The fact that the graphics look like something that was released on the Nintendo 64 or Dreamcast simply adds to its charm.

The Moto Z2 Force performs well in JerryRigEverything's durability test

Lenovo's latest Moto flagship has been through the mill a bit recently. The problems with the Z2 Force's shatterproof but easily scratchable plastic-covered screen have been well documented, and the smaller battery is one of a number of other disappointments when compared to its predecessor.

If you're one of these and you usually struggle to keep tabs on your shifts and schedules, then there's a new app for you on the Play Store. It's still marked as "unreleased," which means it's in beta and could be filled with bugs... It might also be perfectly usable, you'll just have to try it out to see.

My Walmart Schedule is aimed at both associates and managers. (Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that by "associates," Walmart is just using a fancy way of saying regular employee.) It lets associates see their current schedule, claim unassigned shifts, and keep an eye on their holiday balance and time off.
