'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.

Play Store search results revamped for some users, with new info card for top result

It might be time to name this month "Play Store Month." In just November alone, a new trending section, a revamped UI, Netbanking support for India, and various tweaks to installing applications have all made appearances for some users. The latest change is to the Play Store's search results, which have the ironic reputation of being terrible - despite Google having a world-famous search engine.

This change appears to be rolled out to many more users than the previous tweaks (judging by the amount of tips we received), but still hasn't gone live for everyone.

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.

Google+ on mobile browsers now supports super-fast AMP links

The Accelerated Mobile Pages standard is slowly proliferating across the web, to the delight of users on metered or slow connections. The "AMP" sites, implemented for large media outlets at the moment, dynamically reformat pages to shrink images, improve readability, and bring load times down to just a second or two even on a slow mobile network. The latest service to get access to the tool is the web-accessible version of Google+. Users on mobile Chrome and other browsers should start seeing the lightning bolt icons for AMP stories (in the lower left of the image above) starting now.
