Walmart employees get a new app to manage their shifts and schedules

I've just discovered that Walmart has over 4600 stores in the US and 11600 stores worldwide, it also employs more than 2.3M people worldwide. Whoa. 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.

Android Auto is pretty cool, but the requirement of an expensive headunit for your car (or a new car that shipped with Android Auto support) set the barrier of entry pretty high. Thankfully, Google added the ability to use the Android Auto interface on your phone last year. Still, if you want the full Android Auto experience, a compatible Sony head unit is currently $398 ($100 off) from select sites.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ U.S. pricing, availability, and offers

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are finally official, after months of leaks, speculation, and rumors. The phone seems like more than just another iterative step for good ol' Sammy, what with the shift to softkeys for navigation (finally), the new screen aspect ratio, and so on. But as exciting as all of this is, I am certain that those of you who are interested in either phone will want to know where, when, and for how much you can pick one up. Luckily, we've compiled a nice list for you.

Now, the option is available on mobile.

[Deal Alert] Samsung Gear S2 discounted to as little as $125 ($175 off) at Groupon, Walmart, and Verizon

Even if it's technically less capable and offers fewer apps than some newer Android Wear designs, the Samsung Gear S2 is still one of the best-looking smartwatches around, a year and a half after its original release. And as Samsung gadgets are wont to do, the Gear S2 seems to be rapidly dropping in price. The non-classic version is down to just $125 for a refurbished model over at Groupon - that's $175 off of the original retail price. Groupon is also offering a new model for $154.99, which is still a pretty good deal. Shipping is free.

Walmart finally rolls out its Scan & Go app to Android

Attention, Walmart shoppers (on Android): the Scan & Go app is finally here. Back in 2013, the giant retailer began testing a new way to shop. Basically, you wander as normal through Walmart, placing items in your cart as you go. What makes this experience different is that you then scan the barcodes of your items, pay within the app, and show the receipt to the exit greeter on your way out. It's been on iPhone this whole time, but now it graces us Android users. The bummer is that it is limited to the Rogers, AR store for now.
