Google Is Once Again Cutting Wallet Functionality, Will End Support For Gift And Loyalty Cards On August 21st

Since its inception, things have been tough for Google Wallet. Adoption hasn't been great, many carriers have blocked its use, and the rollout of new features hasn't gone as smoothly as one would hope. In short, it's been a long, hard road for such an initially promising product.

While we've already seen Google cut support for the prepaid Wallet card, the company has now decided to ax NFC redemption of gift and loyalty cards as of August 21st.

Google Play Books Updated: Rentals, Highlighting And Notes In Scanned Pages, Better Copy-Paste, And More

Google just released textbooks to the Google Play Store yesterday, and oddly enough, there's a synergistic update to the Google Play Books client available now.

Samsung Releases Samsung Wallet To The Play Store, Unsurprisingly Still Exclusive To Samsung Devices

[New Game] Nun Attack: Run & Gun Blasts Into The Play Store Armed With Iron Faith And Holy Power-Ups

There isn't much depth to Nun Attack: Run & Gun, but it has crisp visuals, memorable nuns that are armed to the teeth, pick-up-and-play controls, and lots of gore. The game is righteous, dirty, casual fun, and it's now available for everyone in the Play Store. The original Nun Attack attracted millions of downloads, and we expect the sequel will do the same.

[Hands-On] DraStic Is The Android Nintendo DS Emulator You've Been Waiting For

Android emulator fans, meet you new best friend. Yesterday the DraStic Nintendo DS emulator was published to the Play Store, for the admittedly high price of $7.99. It's not the first DS emulator for Android, but it's far and away the best - the combination of smooth performance (on sufficient hardware) and a stupefying amount of options to adapt the DS ergonomics makes it an easy recommendation.

Most of the existing DS emulators are based on code for Windows programs, making them unbearably slow on Android.
