Any guitarist, bassist, or string instrument aficionado knows how quickly they can drain their wallets on buying the latest amps and effects. But in the modern digital age, musicians no longer have to fork over thousands upon thousands of dollars to lock in their signature sound — it can all be done through a smartphone! Introducing Deplike, a robust guitar amp and effects emulation app for Android and iOS built to make guitar gear more affordable and accessible for everyone.
Weather apps are a dime a dozen on the Play Store, and since so few offer screenshots of their widgets, it can be tough to know what they actually bring to the table. This is why I took it upon myself to compile a list of the better weather apps out there that offer useful widgets, going so far as to take screenshots of these widgets so that everyone can see exactly what they're getting. This is a running list that is continually updated, and today I've added four new listings for 2021.
Welcome to the roundup of the best new Android applications and live wallpapers that went live in the Play Store or were spotted by us in the previous two weeks or so. Today's roundup is sponsored by Deplike, a fantastic amp and effects tool for guitarists. This week I have the official arrival of the OnePlus Store app for the US and Canada, a dietary diary that offers an adorable mascot, and an interesting tool for testing wifi range. So without further ado, here are all of the new and notable Android apps released on the Play Store in the last two weeks.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 series, thanks to the Snapdragon 888, performs exceptionally well — it can play any Android game you throw at it. But if you were looking to indulge more in the cloud-gaming side of things, you'll be happy to know that these phones are now officially supported by Amazon Luna.
Welcome to Friday, everyone. We have an absolutely packed list of sales today, which means I also have some standouts worth sharing. First up is the console port SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom, which is on sale for its first time. Next up is Chrono Trigger, one of the best JRPG's Square Enix has ever produced. Last but not least is Crashlands, a quality survival game from Butterscotch Shenanigans. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold green text in order to make discovery easier. So without further ado, here are 24 temporarily free and 55 on-sale apps and games for the end of the week.
Arlo is one of the leading smart home security companies out there, and its companion app is what you need to make the most of the hardware. While the iOS version of it has had a dark mode for a couple of years now, it's been woefully absent from the Android app. Fortunately, that's changing with the latest update.
For a lot of writers Grammarly is an invaluable tool to help nail grammar, punctuation, and the many other pitfalls that English throws your way. There's no full-featured version for mobile, but the Grammarly Keyboard comes pretty close. It now has another feature from the desktop version: Tone Detector, which helps you send the right message at the right time. Or alternately, helps curb your less savory texting habits.
Location sharing is great for keeping track of those important to you. It's also something that many forget about once it's been set up; it would be easy to share your location with someone on a day out, only to forget about it for months (or even years) to come. To help with this, Google Maps has started to remind us of whose shared locations we have access to.
Welcome to Wednesday, everyone. Despite a slow week, we have some solid sales today, with several standouts worth mentioning. First up is Ticket to Ride, an enjoyable board game adaptation from Asmodee Digital. Next up is Atom RPG, a quality indie CRPG that shouldn't be missed. Last I have Crying Suns, a tactical roguelite well-worth the current sale price. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold green text in order to make discovery easier. So without further ado, here are 11 temporarily free and 36 on-sale apps and games for the middle of the week.
