Fingerprint sensors have been a thing on Android for a while, and Google has had official API support in Android for more than a year. Still, there are some apps that inexplicably lack support for fingerprint security. Mint was one of them until today. This app has finally been updated with a fingerprint security option.

[Update: Now in the UK] Amazon introduces Music Unlimited at $9.99/month with lower prices for Prime subscribers or Echo owners

Confused about all the paid Amazon subscriptions? Well, join the club.

'Fingerprint Gestures' app brings one Pixel feature to more Android devices

One of the Pixel's more unique features is the ability to swipe on the fingerprint sensor to toggle the notification panel. When the gesture was revealed to be Pixel-exclusive, some Nexus owners were upset. In fact, there was so much outrage that Google finally said they would look into it.

App developer SuperThomasLab aims to solve this issue with 'Fingerprint Gestures,' an application that does exactly what it sounds like. You can configure tapping, double-tapping, or swiping on your device's fingerprint reader to perform a variety of functions.

Ambi-Turner gives Pixel owners the ambient notification powers they've been missing

Google giveth, and Google taketh away. Nexus/Pixel buyers know this too well - from little-used features like lockscreen widgets to more interesting fare like wireless charging, a lot of things have showed up in one Nexus phone only to disappear in the next. The Pixel and Pixel XL, for example, are missing some of the ambient notification tools that debuted with the Nexus 6. But as usual, there's a developer willing to fill in the gap. Check out Ambi-Turner if you want some of those features back.

Dispatch unruly neighbors with pixelated ultra-violence in Party Hard Go

Video games can often be a source of escapist fantasy... and not always fantasy of the "save the princess" variety. Party Hard, released last year on SHIELD and on SHIELD this summer, falls squarely into the second category. This visceral stealth game is about a Jason Voorhees-style serial killer methodically murdering his partying neighbors. Now there's a mobile version for phones and tablets too, going for $7 with no in-app purchases. Needless to say, it's not for kids.
