[Deal Alert] NVIDIA Back to school sale discounts some games up to 75%

Look, no one likes going back to school more than parents. If you're feeling a little guilty that you're relieved the little ones are now out of your hair and back under the supervision of teachers and principals, then you may want to give them something to enjoy in the weekends or the afternoons. And that something could be a nice game for them to play on your their SHIELD TV. If so, NVIDIA has some discounts just for you.

A few GeForce Now games are seeing their prices slashed (these come with a downloadable PC code), as well as some Android titles.

Instagram brings Stories to the mobile website

Instagram says that over 250M people use its Snapchat-like Stories every day, even more than the 200M that were reported back in March. But Stories so far were tied to the mobile apps and that limited their visibility to users. Now, Stories will start showing up on the mobile website as well. (The desktop site still doesn't have them.)

Starting today and over the next weeks, Stories will show up on the top of your feed when you visit instagram.com from your mobile browser. You can view any story by tapping it and switch by tapping the left and right arrows on the side of the screen.

Duolingo releases its TinyCards flashcards app on the Play Store

You may know Duolingo as the company who makes one of the funnest language learning apps, but a year ago, it also released TinyCards, a flashcard app, on iOS. It took a year, but now the app is available on Android too.

TinyCards is a flashcard app a bit in the vein of Duolingo. It has animations, fun graphics, multiple levels, and progress bars that you need to keep topped up. And there are over 200,000 flashcard decks from varying topics to learn, including Chinese, the periodic table, geography, math, and more. Plus you can import your Duolingo-learned words as a flashcard deck to keep your memory fresh.

[Update: Stable app released] Microsoft renames Beam streaming platform to 'Mixer,' releases Android app as a beta

Today Microsoft has renamed the service to 'Mixer,' and released a beta of the Android app.

[Update: Three new Gen II Legendaries, and Exclusive Raid changes] Pokémon GO now has Mewtwo, via new invite-only Exclusive Raid Battles

It wasn't too long ago that Niantic introduced a new mechanic to Pokemon GO in the form of Raid Battles. It was via this raid mechanism that they later gave us Legendary Pokémon, but there were some noteworthy omissions. At least one of those has now been rectified, as the legendary Pokémon Mewtwo has been added to the game via a new invite-only Exclusive Raid Battle system.

Samsung's TouchWiz Home launcher adds swipe down gesture to open the notifications panel

While most of us here on Android Police use third-party launchers for their added customization options, many users stick with the default launcher that comes on their device because it does the job well enough. One of the reasons I switch to Nova is gestures, because I love swiping down on the homescreen to open the notification panel, since reaching the top of the display can sometimes be cumbersome, especially one-handed.

Previously, Samsung's TouchWiz Home launcher (I thought they'd retired that TouchWiz name a long time ago) had swipe up and down gestures, but they both served to open the app drawer.

Twitter beta redesigns the night mode toggle and QR barcode scanner

According to our frequent tipster Gurkanwal Singh, Twitter beta 7.12 has started showing a new night mode toggle and QR code icon. If you might remember, Twitter's night mode used to have a proper toggle in the side menu and the QR code display and scanner was hidden under the overflow menu when viewing your profile. The latter was really difficult to get to and nowhere regular users would guess.

Now, both have moved to the bottom of the side menu, under the Help center. They're simple icons with a crescent moon for night mode and a QR icon for the code scanner.

The Walking Dead: March to War has meandered errantly to the Play Store

After a short beta period The Walking Dead: March to War is officially available on the Play Store. It is a free-to-play survival strategy game that features a beautiful design. While the game's art direction is visually superb, the gameplay is lacking thanks to its liberal use of the typical free-to-play mechanics we are all too accustomed to.
