Beside discovering that it's among the best smartphones they can buy now, they're also digging deep into the device's apps and sharing some of them with us on APK Mirror. One of those is the new Camera app v3.2.91 which, when installed on previous OnePlus phones running Pie such as the 6T, brings an updated, Pixel-like Lens integration and customization to the scrolling modes.

[Update: Leaves beta and adds real-time feedback mode] Google’s K-2 reading practice app Rivet adds smartphone support

We've recently told you about Rivet, a free reading-practice app for kids developed by Area 120, Google's experimental product division.

The APK could still be sideloaded on handsets, though, but the interface didn't look pleasing compared to larger screens. However, the application has just been updated and now officially supports smartphones as well.

Google Search app experiments with Dark Theme [APK Download]

Last week during its annual developer conference, Google announced that it would introduce a dark mode with Android 10 Q. The signs have been pointing towards that ever since the beta started, but now the company is putting more steam behind the new theme.

[Update: Spreads to Samsung, LG] Google Lookout uses AI to help visually-impaired people navigate the world

I can't imagine having to navigate today's world while visually impaired. From streets to people to items, and even trivial things like preparing a sandwich or knowing the proper toilet sign in a restaurant, it would all be infinitely more difficult without sight, and I have a lot of admiration for those who have to handle these situations every day. Smartphones can make some of this easier, especially with AI at the helm. If Google Lens can identify a dog's breed from a photo, there's nothing stopping it from using the same tech to help visually-impaired people, and that's where Lookout comes in.
