OnePlus has just released OxygenOS 184.108.40.206 to the OnePlus 9 series, and the update is packed with new camera features. In the spirit of OnePlus' collaboration with Hasselblad, the two companies have recreated a ton of features known from the classic Hasselblad XPan film camera for a vintage shooting experience, including an interface based on the camera's viewfinder.
Welcome to Friday, everyone. It's a busy day for sales, which means I have some quality standouts. First up is Hidden Folks, a fantastic hidden object game that offers unique black and white graphics. Next, I have My Child Lebensborn, a heartfelt story-driven game that deals with the aftermath of WW2. Last but not least is Farm Invasion USA, a whacky auto-runner that's easy to pick up and play. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold in order to make discovery easier. So without further ado, here are 28 temporarily free and 57 on-sale apps and games for the end of the week.

Android 12 is around the corner and Google is rushing to update all of its apps with the new Material You guidelines. In recent days, we got a taste of it in Calendar, Keep, and Drive. Now, Google Duo has also found its calling.
If you're looking for a dirt-cheap option for Wi-Fi cameras, Wyze isn't your only choice. Today Eufy (an Anker sub-brand) is selling a pair of its basic indoor security cameras for just a hair under sixty bucks, a $10 discount on Amazon. These are the C24 models with an updated 2K sensor, a step up on the basic 1080p C22 version.
Tuesday's iPhone 13 announcement brought out plenty of opinions, but the phrase I've seen repeated the most often is, "it's boring." While I admit that most of the presentation fell flat for me, largely because I'm not really interested in switching to an iPhone, there were two segments that highlighted exactly what it is I wish I could get from the phones I do buy: better video creation.
