Google Play Pass roundup: 25 of the best apps and games currently available on the service

Google Play Pass is a subscription service ($4.99 per month) that offers access to a vast selection of apps and games minus any advertisements and in-app purchases.

Nintendo 3DS emulator Citra now supports save states on Android (APK download)

Nintendo 3DS emulator Citra now supports save states on Android (APK download)

Citra first added save state support to its desktop build back in April this year, just a month before bringing over the emulator to Android. Since save states are very intense on storage and prone to breakage, it took the team a while to port over experimental save state support to Android, but the wait is over. Citra has announced that save states are now available on the latest Android build just as the app reached the milestone of half a million downloads.
