It's the week before Christmas, which is both crazy and exciting. For some, these next several days will pass with agonizing slowness; others like me will start (or have started) panicking because they haven't finished wrapping presents yet. All of that aside, we're due for the first round of app sales. Spoiler: it's not a great list today, but feel free to peruse. But pay special attention to Nova Launcher Prime, which is on sale for just $0.99.

As Microsoft's abandonment of Windows phone continued apace this year, the company moved to release more of its core apps on Android, and that included its Edge browser.

That means a few hundred people will be delighted to learn that the app just got its first major update, which lets wearers of the Jacquard-woven jacket use gestures that enable new light modes for the tag on the sleeve, as well as find their phone.

As Cyber Monday was wearing down, Google was already winding up some app updates.

Tor Browser's security slider now available on Orfox for Android

The desktop Tor Browser is designed to make accessing sites as safe and anonymous as possible, sometimes at the cost of usability (JavaScript is disabled by default) and speed. It remains a popular tool for privacy-conscious users, but the mobile browser always lacked a major feature - Tor's security slider.
