[Deal Alert] Goo Saga down to 0.10, possibly available internationally

Most of the time, the 0.10 deals we report on are limited to a very specific subset of countries (such as the UK, Italy, France, Russia, etc), but this week it's different. Goo Saga is on sale for 0.10, and as far as we can see, this one's international; even the United States is included.

Goo Saga is a pretty fun little platformer, all things told. The story goes that the little elastic-y creature you control, Goo, is looking for his creator, and more generally the meaning of life. The gameplay is addictive and the graphics are pretty damn delightful. All told, for 0.10 (or equivalent in your country's currency) this is a great deal.

Android Pay v1.13 prepares to support PayPal cards and enable payments with Visa Checkout [APK Teardown]

Small Microsoft Office updates for PowerPoint, Excel, and Word add in whiteboard capture and form control file opening

After Google improved the Docs, Sheets, and Slides apps a few weeks ago, Microsoft is responding with updates to the Android apps for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. The update adds small, incremental improvements which won't matter to the vast majority, but for a little subset of users, might be the thing that gets them to use one or all of the apps.

Microsoft PowerPoint

The major thing that's new in PowerPoint is the ability to share only one slide. It can get really annoying when to send one slide in a presentation of many slides, you have to send the entire thing and say 'look at slide 22,' or whatever.
