Begin the week with 20 temporarily free and 20 on-sale apps

It's the final full week of January, which is plain hard to believe. Even so, we all must press on and since it's Monday, I'm back around for some app sales. We have a pretty small list today, which I would expect this early in the year, so it shouldn't take you too long to browse through what's on offer.

Wine, the popular Windows compatibility layer, can now be installed on Android

If you're not familiar with it, Wine is a free and open-source compatibility layer for running Windows programs on Unix-like operating systems. It has been in development since 1993, and can run a wide variety of Windows programs on Linux and macOS (though modifications or tweaks are sometimes required).

CodeWeavers has been working on porting Wine to Android for the past few years, and the first alpha release arrived in August 2016. Although the company's products are commercial software, it does contribute many of its improvements back to the Wine codebase. Wine 3.0 was just released, and it's the first version you can install as an app on Android. Opening the app gives you a full-screen Windows display, much like the first builds of CrossOver for Android, with a Start menu at the lower-left corner.

Hangouts Meet now supports tablets

By last count, Google had 39 messaging apps. Okay, that's not accurate, but it's not that far off. After moving away from Hangouts as the unified Google messaging platform, Google launched Hangouts Meet as a business-oriented video conferencing product.

Lenovo announces three new education-focused Chromebooks

Chromebooks don't have as much power as the average Windows laptop, but they don't need it. These devices can do everything most computer users need and then some. The lower price point is nice, too. Lenovo's latest Chromebooks run the gamut from mid-range to bargain-basement, and all of them have a focus on education.
