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.

Google Drive's redesigned Material You widget sure does look weird

Part of Google's Material You design philosophy is a renewed focus on widgets, revitalizing a stale look that has plagued the platform for years. Some of those widgets sport some odd designs, but they still fit into Android 12's overall appearance pretty well. We didn't expect Google Drive to be one of the apps to get a brand-new interactive tool, but that's exactly what's happened with the app's latest update — and it's sporting a pretty unique look as well.

The Pixel 6 is Android's best chance to stop the iPhone 13 Pro from dominating video

The Pixel 6 is Android's best chance to stop the iPhone 13 Pro from dominating video

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.
