Google Play Music is still superior to YouTube Music for people who just want to listen to their own uploaded songs, even if YouTube Music has been catching up a lot lately. But with the demise of the Google Play Music Manager ahead of the full shutdown, users are left without an automated solution for uploading their local library. That's where an open-source tool comes in: The unofficial YTMusicUploader replicates the Music Manager's capabilities and lets you choose a path on your Windows computer for automatic uploading to YTM.
Not all camera apps are the same, and Adobe set out to prove that with the Photoshop Camera. Making heavy use of AI, Adobe aims to stylize photos based on what it can detect in the scene.

Welcome to Wednesday, everyone. Today's list is on the shorter side, as most sales lists in the middle of the week are, but I surprisingly have a bunch of highlights to share despite the short list. First up is Simple File Manager Pro, a quality and open-source file manager that's easily worth the sale price. Of course, if you're looking for games, then the current sale on the action-platformer Gunslugs 3 is worth a look, and if you prefer stylish puzzle games, then you should definitely check out Agent A: A puzzle in disguise. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier.
Many developers have been trying to copy the success of Niantic's Pokémon GO with clones that offer similar gameplay, and so it's easy to jump to conclusions when new map-based mobile titles are revealed. Surprisingly Bandai Namco has actually come up with a unique way to utilize the map, and so Pac-Man Geo is a game where players will create new mazes out of the streets in their cities. While there's still a collection aspect in the title, seeing that high-scores will unlock collectible landmarks, at least the core Pac-Man gameplay has been retained.
Not too long ago, Google announced that it would roll out redesigned icons for its core productivity tools like Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Meet, and Drive. It turns out that the latter is the service to make the transition first, as the company has just started rolling out a Drive app update complete with the new icon. We've got it available for download over at APK Mirror.
CrossOver is a commercial compatibility layer by CodeWeavers, based on the Wine project, which aims to run popular Windows software on Unix-based operating systems. CodeWeavers released the first beta of CrossOver for Chrome OS three years ago, and now it's finally ready for the masses.
It's been a hot minute since Google announced a big v2 update to its Recorder app for Pixel phones.
