Welcome to the roundup of the best new Android applications and live wallpapers that went live in the Play Store or were spotted by us in the previous two weeks or so.

19 temporarily free and 61 on-sale apps and games for Friday

Welcome to Friday, everyone. It would appear that a plethora of developers have placed their catalogs of games on sale today, including titles from Plug in Digital, Team 17, HandyGames, and Dotemu (a word of warning, many Dotemu titles won't work on Android 11). This is why the games section of the sales list is so plump today. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold green text in order to make discovery easier. So without further ado, here are 19 temporarily free and 61 on-sale apps and games for the end of the week.

Beeper promises chat app unity and iMessage on Android

Beeper promises chat app unity and iMessage on Android

Many Android fans believe in a sort of holy grail: That iMessage can somehow be brought to Android. Almost everything else when moving from iOS to Android has a workaround, an app, or some way to accommodate it, though iMessage remains an Apple-controlled platform exclusive with a dominating presence in the US market. But a new app formally launching today called Beeper aims to change that, delivering not just iMessage for Android, but a single unified messaging app for all your other services, too, like Telegram, Slack, Signal, Twitter DMs, Discord, Hangouts, and even IRC.

App Pairs on Android 12 may let you open two apps at once

Long gone are the days when smartphones were tiny and cramped, and multitasking on them was a distant dream. With the adoption of larger displays and more flexible software, smartphones make it easier than ever before to do more at once. Split-screen, a native Android feature, already lets you work with two apps at the same time. Now Google is reportedly working on a way to make it even easier to multitask, with a new App Pairs feature for launching two apps simultaneously.

Here's how Google might simplify Wi-Fi password sharing in Android 12

Here's how Google might simplify Wi-Fi password sharing in Android 12

Asking for the Wi-Fi password always feels a little awkward, but Google has been working on ways to make the process easier. Android 10 allowed users to share network details via QR codes, and now it looks like Nearby Share could simplify things even further in an upcoming version of Android — possibly even this year's Android 12 release.

Google can’t seem to fix an Android 11 issue that breaks support for gaming controllers

Google can’t seem to fix an Android 11 issue that breaks support for gaming controllers

Touchscreens are great for many things, but gaming is not one of them. A better way to play games on smartphones is with the help of controllers and gamepads, and with the dawn of cloud gaming, they've sort of become essential for a console-like gaming experience on the go. Unfortunately, for some users, Android 11 is acting funny with controllers, and in certain cases refuses to recognize them or let them be remapped.

Welcome to Monday, everyone. Sales are picking up once again, and so I have more than a handful of noteworthy titles to share, and I'd like to mention the standouts for today. First up is 9th Dawn III, a fantastic indie RPG well worth the current asking price. Next, I have 7Days, an enjoyable adventure game where your choices matter. Lastly, there's Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition, one of the best CRPGs out there despite the fact it's on sale just about every week. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold green text in order to make discovery easier.

First details emerge of Android's upcoming app hibernation feature

It feels like Android 11 has only been out for five minutes, but news about the next major release is about to come thick and fast. If last year's schedule is anything to go by, we could be getting the first Android 12 developer preview as early as next month. We've heard a couple of small tidbits about it so far — Android Runtime is set to become a Project Mainline module and it'll be easier to use alternative app stores — but this latest news sounds especially intriguing.
