34 temporarily free and 69 on-sale apps and games for Friday

34 temporarily free and 69 on-sale apps and games for Friday

Welcome to Friday, everyone. It's a busy day for sales, since the weekend is almost here, and so I have more than a few standouts to share today. First and foremost, if you're an RPG fan, then you should definitely check out the sale for Battle Chasers: Nightwar, one of the best turn-based RPGs on the platform. If you prefer card-based games, then perhaps Cultist Simulator is more your speed, though if you're a puzzle fanatic like me, then I highly recommend Hello Human, a quirky indie somewhat similar to The Stanley Parable. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier.

Google's response to Android apps getting delayed or killed in the background leaves a lot to be desired

Google's response to Android apps getting delayed or killed in the background leaves a lot to be desired

Google's Android AMA is underway, and the team's engineers have already answered the most hotly-anticipated question: How will Google fix the problem of inconsistent background limits across different manufacturers and devices? It's a long-standing problem where overly aggressive power management tweaks break functionality in plenty of apps, resulting in a headache for developers and frustration for users. According to the AMA, Google does plan on making a few changes to help fix things, but the company isn't doing all that it could.

Nearby Share is starting to roll out more widely on Android

Nearby Share, Android's AirDrop equivalent, had been teased and leaked for over a year before it finally made its shy debut at the end of June. In its limited rollout, the feature was restricted to devices running Google Play Services beta, and was also governed by a server-side test. Only a small percentage of users got it, but it now appears to be rolling out widely and coming out of beta too.

Android 11's jarring Pixel 4 display flicker bug will be fixed shortly

Android 11's jarring Pixel 4 display flicker bug will be fixed shortly

Starting with Android 11 Developer Preview 4, a few Pixel 4 users, including us here at Android Police, noticed an odd display flicker bug, which we could pin down to some rapid flip-flopping between the 60 and 90Hz modes. While you might not be able to see it in screen recordings, the flickering is very visible and very annoying when you use the phone. Unfortunately, the bug is still present two development cycles later in Beta 2, but Google has promised that it will fix the issue with an update slated to be released in two weeks.
