30 of the best Android games with controller support in 2020

Android smartphones have long supported gamepads, and many Android games have long supported them, but that really doesn't tell the whole story when it comes to using buttons and analog sticks to play your favorite titles on the go.

We've got a list of 30 we've personally tested and can confidently state work well with most Android-compatible gamepads, including everything from console-quality ports to mobile-first titles.

13 of the best weather widgets available on Android in 2020

13 of the best weather widgets available on Android in 2020

Weather apps are uniquely well-suited to Android's powerful widget system, but since there are so many options on the Play Store, it can be hard to find the best weather widgets currently available, especially since so few of these weather apps highlight their widgets in screenshots or videos. This is why I've compiled a roundup of my favorite offerings, and I've even taken the time to snap screenshots of the widgets in question for the latest update to this post, in order to provide everyone with a clear look of each and every widget. I've also added a new listing for today's update (Appy Weather), so if you're looking for a solid Dark Sky replacement, you're in luck.
