Chrome OS is a lot more capable than it once was. Unlike the "Chrome" moniker implies, it's a swiss-army knife that runs a wide range of Android apps and powerful desktop Linux tools. The versatility means you'll need a beefier laptop, and nothing fits the bill better than the Acer Chromebook Spin 713 refreshed this year. It continues its predecessor's winning formula of packing terrific specs and features for the money, and now, you can pick one up at Best Buy for $80 less with a couple of freebies to sweeten the deal.
Samsung has given its folding phone customers perks like golf discounts and Michelin-starred deserts, but this summer, the non-folding hoi polloi can also enjoy some Galaxy-owning benefits. On June 21st, anyone with a Galaxy device can snag a 3-month YouTube Premium subscription, a $5 voucher for Uber Eats, a $5 Twitch gift card, and a three-month Billboard Pro membership, plus a new referral program for the Galaxy S21 that gets you a Galaxy Watch 3 discount, and a handful of smaller perks.
The long-term fate of Stadia may be up in the air (and ready to fuel endless debate), but that's not stopping the platform from still managing to attract some AAA titles. Stadia's latest big score is Resident Evil Village, which lands this Friday, May 7. Google's welcoming it with another deal that offers a free Chromecast Ultra and Stadia controller with pre-order — and you've only got a few hours left to take advantage of it.
For years, Nova has been the choice of launcher for millions around the world — a quick-fix for phones that either lack a proper launcher or have a clunky one. While it's available for free, you need to shell out $4.99 to unlock everything it has to offer, or not. In the spirit of the festive season, the app is currently on sale for a-cent-less-than-a-dollar.
I'm not a parent, but I can imagine that many are getting driven insane by their kids now that everyone's stuck at home. If you're looking for a cost-effective way to potentially calm them down, the Google Play Store is currently offering almost 30 books, with some reading for a variety of age groups.
We've not covered T-Mobile Tuesdays for quite some time, but the Un-carrier has just unveiled a couple of new offers we thought you might be interested in. Using the marketing power of the Super Bowl, TV spots highlighted new partnerships with Lyft and Taco Bell.
Packt Publishing has been doing a really cool Free Learning promotion for... Wow, almost two years now. Anyway, Packt is giving away a free technology-focused eBook every day. All you have to do is register an account and claim the book before the time is up and a new title replaces it. After that, it's yours to read online or download in one of three DRM-free formats. We thought a few people might be interested in grabbing today's selection: The Android Game Developer's Handbook.
It's finally Friday! And that means we're here to round out the week with the final app sales post. Today's theme centers around games, so I hope you've set aside some time this weekend. I have bolded a few noteworthy titles that are definitely worth checking out, so be looking for them below. And don't forget to go back to Wednesday's post to see if anything there catches your eye.
Once again, we've come around to the beginning of a new week. Mondays can be rough, so I'm here to help you through it with another app sales post! Hopefully, you'll find a gem in amongst today's trove of stuff. But without further ado, let's dive in.
Here we are halfway through another week; we're that much closer to Friday! For most of us, the summer heat is really turning up (I miss winter), so why not stay inside with this evening's list of app sales? There are quite a few tonight (I hope you like the Icon Packs & Customization section), more than we usually have on a Wednesday. If you missed Monday's post, be sure to go back and check it out here.
