Android 12's Material You Clock app works on older versions (APK Download)

Unless you have a spare lying around to be your real phone, I wouldn't recommend installing beta software on a device that you depend upon. But that's what we're here for! Android 12's version of the reliable Clock app is looking good in the latest beta. And it turns out that it looks pretty good on Android 11, too, because you can install the new APK from the updated version on older builds.

Google Calculator + Material You = <3 <3 <3

Google Calculator + Material You = <3 <3 <3

Your high school math teacher probably once claimed you wouldn't always have a calculator on you to solve complicated algebra equations.

Mozilla wants to make its password manager obsolete with Firefox 93 Beta (APK Download)

The last few Firefox releases haven't been too exciting, but Firefox 93 has at least one neat new feature in tow that might help you cut down on the amount of apps you have installed on your phone. The latest beta can serve as an autofill service for logins and passwords, much like Mozilla's own Lockwise app (or any other password manager, for that matter).

Microsoft News is now Microsoft Start, because Microsoft loves to confuse you

You might think of Microsoft News as yet another algorithm-riding aggregator full of noisy, SEO'd headlines, but you'd be missing out on the hidden gem that I've taken advantage of: the ability to read a current selection of full articles from paywalled sources like Bloomberg or The New York Times. Microsoft is aiming to capitalize on the service's strengths with a new name — Microsoft Start.

The Galaxy Watch4 and Watch4 classic are probably the best smartwatches Samsung has ever made, marking the companies return to Wear OS over its own Tizen.

Samsung Internet Beta 16 adds updated search in URL bar and blocks tracking pixels

Did you know that there are tiny, invisible pixels hidden on a lot of websites, nefariously tracking your every movement across the web? Well there are. It's not really dangerous, just kind of rude and annoying. The newest version of Samsung's Android browser, one of the few tools that it shares with the rest of the Android world, detects and blocks this practice. So sayeth the changelog!
