FYI: Google Maps can suggest parking spots near your destination

It can be tough to pinpoint when specific features go live, given Google's penchant for silently flipping switches and subsequent, months-later announcements. In this case, we know Maps has been prepping for near-route parking since early last year, and some time between now and then, (likely around the beginning of this year) that switch was flipped for at least some of us. So, in case you weren't aware, Maps can suggest spots to park while in-route to your destination.

Ricoh Theta V review: The DSLR of 360-degree cameras

There is no shortage of portable 360-degree cameras. The most well-known in our circles is Samsung's Gear 360, but that only works with Samsung phones and iOS. Insta360's 'ONE' and 'Nano' cameras are also popular, though the latter only works with select iPhone models.

If price is no object, one of the leading devices in this category has been Ricoh's Theta V camera. It's tiny, but it packs a 4K sensor and the ability to record surround-sound audio (with a separate module). The camera's functionality can be extended by a variety of plug-ins, like one for streaming to YouTube or uploading media to Google Photos.

Indie Metroidvania 'Teslagrad' is coming to Android, and you can pre-register right now

Teslagrad is one of those indie games I always heard about, but never actually took the time to play. It initially launched on Steam in 2013, and then it hit consoles in 2014. It's a Metroidvania-style 2D platformer with a steampunk setting, and you get to use your electromagnetic powers to help solve puzzles as you make your way up the long abandoned Tesla Tower. It's already listed on the Play Store if you'd like to pre-register right now, and you really should, since it will be available at a discounted price for those that do.

Dead Zebra's new mooncake Android Minis celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival

Dead Zebra has a brand new Android Mini set for the commemorative collectors out there, and this one looks especially delicious. Dead Zebra's newest Minis are just in time for the Mid-Autumn Festival, a harvest celebration primarily celebrated in China and Vietnam. The mooncake, usually filled with red bean or lotus seed paste, is a hallmark of the festival, so Dead Zebra has crafted the tops of four Android Minis to look like the pastry — with added antenna and a biscuit-like body, of course.

Netmarble's turn-based gacha RPG 'Phantomgate: The Last Valkyrie' is here

Netmarble doesn't have the greatest reputation. Thanks to its heavy-handed use of free-to-play mechanics and plenty of expensive in-app purchases, a lot of shade gets thrown its way, and deservedly so. That's why the release of its latest gacha RPG is a bit of a rare occurrence, it's actually not that bad. After a lengthy soft-launch period Phantomgate: The Last Valkyrie is finally available on the Google Play Store, and despite the expected downsides of a title like this, there's a lot of fun to be had. So if you are a fan of 2D platforming and classic turn-based RPG battles, you're going to want to give this a gander.

Some of Twitter's most annoying 'features' can now be turned off

Once upon a time, the Twitter timeline only showed posts from the people you follow. Then it started displaying tweets your friends liked, and recommendations for people to follow, and a 'What you missed' section, and tweets your friends replied to, and so on. This has led me to use Mastodon more and more, since there are no algorithms or recommendations on that platform, but most of the people I know are still on Twitter.

Thankfully, there is an easy way to turn off all the annoying 'features' that clutter up your timeline. Twitter added the ability to mute certain words or phrases last year, and by adding certain strings as muted words, you can now hide all of Twitter's suggested content.
