Google's Pixelbook comes with a big trackpad, a touchscreen, and (obviously) a keyboard. If that's not enough input for you, there's the Pixelbook Pen for an additional $100. This fancy stylus lets you write, draw, and access Google Assistant. One thing it can't do is dock inside the computer. Recognizing the obvious storage conundrum here, Google has decided to send out pen loops to all previous purchasers. Read More
Like Netflix, Amazon has taken to creating more than a few original series, the most famous of which include The Grand Tour, Mozart in the Jungle, and The Man in the High Castle. One of the newest shows coming out of Amazon Studios is The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which was released just over two months ago but has already won two Golden Globe Awards. To celebrate this, Amazon is making the show free to watch for several days, starting right now. It's too bad it's not watchable via Android TV. Read More
The sequel to the beautiful isometric puzzler Monument Valley was released in November, but if you still haven't played the original and you're wondering what all the fuss is about with this gorgeous perspective-bending game, then you might be in for a new year treat: Monument Valley is free now in several countries around the world.
Since we can't possibly check every country there is, I'll say that your best bet is to go to the Play Store listing wherever you live and see if it's free for you. From my research, it seems that the game is free in India, Indonesia, Brazil, Mexico, Russia, Taiwan, and many countries where the Play Store prices are not localized and still in USD, like Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iceland, Venezuela, Argentina, and much more.

It's finally Friday! Christmas is just a few short days away, so here's my final round of app sales before the holiday. The list today is almost as long as Wednesday's, which itself was massive, but I find it lackluster in comparison. There are some good things to be had, like The Room 3, which you will find in bold. And be sure to go back to Wednesday's post so that you can get in on the remainder of the sales there. Also, I will not be posting one of these on Monday, so I will see you all again next Wednesday.

It's Friday! The final round of app sales has rolled around, just in time for the weekend. The holiday season is in full swing and Christmas is right around the corner... where did December go? Anyway, we have a slightly longer list than usual for a Friday, so let's dig in. Read More
The home screen situation was grim six years ago as we waited for a Launcher Pro redesign that never materialized (any day now, I'm sure) and OEMs assaulted us with terrible, clunky stock launchers. Well, more terrible than now. Nova Launcher arrived six years ago today, and many of our home screens have never been the same. Read More
Some users have been seeing these green suggestions when performing a search on the Play Store app for almost a year, but the feature began rolling out more widely in June (I still don't have it). However, it only seemed to provide keywords to further specify your search, not proper filters to separate the results according to price. Now it looks like Google is testing the latter kind.
