YouTube Music v3.47 prepares reorganized Library tab (APK Teardown)

YouTube Music received quite a few improvements during 2019, but it may not have been obvious since many of updates have been fairly subtle or only relevant to small audiences. Let's be honest, most of it is easy to ignore when some big features are still missing. Regardless, the service and app maturing, and that will be important when Google Play Music eventually fades into the aether and YouTube Music is all that remains. With the latest update, preparations are being made to improve the Library tab so it's easier to use and doesn't get in the way of playing music the way you want.

The White Door is a stylish point-and-click adventure game from the creators of the Cube Escape series

Rusty Lake is a developer best known for its Cube Escape and Rusty Lake series of point-and-click adventure games, though often, these titles offer a dark theme, which may not appeal to everyone. This is precisely why The White Door has drawn my attention. Much like its predecessors, it too is a point-and-click adventure game, but this time around the story and graphics are the primary focus, which makes this a game that's a little easier to pick up and play thanks to its streamlined split-screen gameplay that revolves around the title's mysterious narrative.

Dead Cells is coming to Android after all (Update: Q3 2020)

In October of last year, I broke the news that Dead Cells had popped up on the Play Store as a pre-registration listing, but the title was soon delisted. Sadly there was no way to know if that listing was a mistake, or if someone had simply pulled the trigger a little early. Well, there is no more need to guess. Motion Twin has announced a partnership with Playdigious to bring Dead Cells to mobile. The title is scheduled to be released on iOS sometime this summer, and an Android version "will come later."

Power Support Claw review: If you've got a Stadia controller, you might as well

Google bills Stadia as "one place for all the ways we play" — meaning on TV, desktop, and mobile. But considering Stadia's games aren't controllable by touch, playing on a phone can get awkward. Enter the Claw: a made-for-Google phone cradle custom fit to the Stadia controller. It's not great, but outside of Stadia's inherent drawbacks, it does facilitate phone play, and for $15, you might as well pick one up.

Razer reveals new universal, low-latency game controller for phones

Razer has announced today that it will bring an all-new mobile-focused gaming controller to Android in partnership with Gamevice, a well-known mobile controller manufacturer. This upcoming device is known as the Razer Kishi, and Razer is boasting that it will support low-latency on Android through a hidden USB-C port. It's styled after the Razer Junglecat (released last year), which clearly borrows much of its design from Gamevice's controllers. It would also appear that Razer is positioning the Kishi as a low-latency device perfect for playing cloud-based games, which ties into a Razer collaboration with Nvidia's GeForce NOW game streaming service.
