Francisco Franco's new app Gratus is a novel tool that reminds you to stop and appreciate life

It's a bit hard to describe, but it's meant to provide you with appreciation and motivation when you might be feeling a bit down. The name itself means "grateful" in Latin, and it's an apt summary of the intended effect. Think of it as a repository for all the things you enjoy.

AppLock from DoMobile lets you password protect individual apps, safeguard select photos and videos, and much more [Sponsored Post]

Sometimes just having a lock screen password isn't secure or flexible enough to protect what needs protection. For instance, you might want to be able to hand your phone to somebody else to use but make sure they can't take over your Facebook and do something embarrassing.

Or maybe you want to show a friend a set of photos you just took, but want to be assured they don't scroll too far and get to that one picture (you know what I'm talking about).  AppLock has your back, giving you both the security and the control to customize your privacy setup any way you want it.

Google Express updated to include offline shopping list support, remove substitutions

It almost feels like Google has been toying with us recently when it comes to our shopping lists. They took the decision to move the Assistant's shopping list from Keep to Express, which angered many. It soon became clear that lists in Google Express were nowhere near as feature-rich, as you couldn't access them so easily, or share them with others, or use them offline. Here in the UK where Google Express isn't officially available, you're even linked to a just web version of your shopping list if you use the Assistant. Thankfully, for American users, Google has been working to repair some of the damage and the latest update includes offline support for your lists.

Magisk v13.3 released with fixes for the latest SafetyNet detection methods

This is becoming a common refrain, but Magisk has been updated to bypass SafetyNet, again. Just a few days ago Magisk developer topjohnwu told us that he was hard at work on a fix. While he wasn't able to provide a firm date at the time, he may have over delivered on his promise of "soon." The latest update, v13.3, escapes SafetyNet detection. Your Magisk Manager app should prompt you for an update sometime soon.
