[Deal Alert] Three Storytelling Games Lifeline, Lifeline 2, And Lifeline: Silent Night Are Each Reduced To 10 Cents

Bringing games to mobile phones has come with challenges. Touchscreens don't handle some genres as well as traditional controllers. Interface elements need to be large enough for fingertips. Some titles, frankly, feel shoehorned to fit on phones.

The Lifeline series of games are an exception. I don't mean these are three titles that are remarkably well adapted for small touch controls. This series offers an experience that only feels natural on a phone, and today you can get all three entries for 10 cents apiece.

The Play Store Is Coming To Chrome OS, Complete With All The Android Apps You Could Ever Want

In 2014, Google brought a few Android apps to Chrome OS - at first it was a trickle, and then more and more came, until an astounding 29 apps were available. Google then released ARC Welder, a tool that allowed developers to port their apps without Google's involvement. But Android apps on Chrome OS have always felt like they didn't really belong on Chrome. Now, Google might be about to change that.

According to reddit user /u/TheWiseYoda, there is a setting in Chrome OS v51 (which is currently available through the developer channel) which says "Enable Android Apps to run on your Chromebook." In and of itself, that's not really saying anything - Android apps have been on Chrome OS for a while.

Google Play Gift Cards Come To Indonesia

There are many ways to buy content on the Play Store: debit/credit cards, carrier billing, Paypal, and gift cards. The latter is one of the least complicated options since all you have to do is buy a card from the store, enter it into your account, and you're good to go. There's no need to worry about bank cards, carrier fees, or a Paypal connection. You can even gift these cards to friends and family members to encourage them to buy content.

Now gift cards are coming to Indonesia — one of the most populated countries in the world. They'll be available in 150000, 300000, and 500000 Indonesian Rupiah values (approx $11.37, $22.76, and $37.93, respectively) and will be sold at Indomaret stores.

Gesture-Based Photo Organizer 'Slidebox' Swipes Into The Play Store

Swipe up to read this post.

Managing photos isn't a new problem. Smartphones may provide us with a camera in our pockets all the time, but we've had to wrestle with how to store photographs since we started taking them. We've crammed pictures into photo albums and transferred images off digital cameras using USB cables. These days we're trying to figure out the best way to manage photos on touchscreen devices that let us take and store so many.

Slidebox is one the latest options to pop up in the Play Store.

Google Announces New Google Play App Icons

Google is kicking off the week by revamping the look of its "Play" family of app icons. That includes the Play Store, Play Music, and anything else that starts with "Play." The look is much more consistent, but I imagine the redesign will be rather divisive. I mean, isn't everything?

Google Brings Google Play Promo Codes To Austria, Denmark, Norway, Poland, Sweden, And Switzerland

Google has added six new countries to the list of countries with the ability to redeem Google Play balance promotional codes: Austria, Denmark, Norway, Poland, Sweden, and Switzerland. To be clear, this doesn't mean that users can redeem app promo codes generated by developers: that functionality has been available since mid-January, and is available to any country where users can buy apps, as long as the specific app is available to download in that country.

When you buy a Chromecast, usually it comes with some form of voucher for Google Play credit, which is then spendable on apps, music, games, books, movies, or TV shows.
