Tapatalk has been pulled from the Google Play Store

Tapatalk has been pulled from the Google Play Store

Tapatalk was an incredibly popular Android app in years past, as it provided an easy way to access thousands of web forums through a single application, in an era when many websites had limited mobile layouts. The app still maintains a loyal (albeit smaller) following to this day, though the Android version has now been removed by the Google Play Store.

25 temporarily free and 44 on-sale apps and games for Friday

25 temporarily free and 44 on-sale apps and games for Friday

Welcome to Friday, everyone. It would appear that today's sales concentrate primarily on games, and so I have a few standouts to share with everyone. First up is Death Worm, a delightful title all about eating everything and anything as a giant worm. Next is G30 - A Memory Maze, a minimal puzzler that tells a story through each puzzle. Last up is Legends of Andor – The King’s Secret, a deep and engaging board game adaptation that's easily worth the current asking price. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier.

Stadia is putting a price on your friends' heads with new referral codes

Stadia is putting a price on your friends' heads with new referral codes

It's hard to believe, but Stadia is almost a year old now. Despite reaching this milestone, Google's cloud gaming service hasn't exactly taken off into the mainstream just yet. In an effort to help spread the Stadia gospel, Google is now offering free perks like a month of Stadia Pro in return for referring friends to the platform.

Get a Pixel 4a for as little as $216 with Google Fi's new subscription program

Get a Pixel 4a for as little as $216 with Google Fi's new subscription program

Google Fi has just launched a phone subscription plan that is actually a pretty sweet deal. For $15 a month over two years, you can get a Pixel 4a plus a device protection insurance plan. That works out to just $10 more than the current unlocked retail price, plus theft and accidental damage protection. In two years, your phone is paid off and yours to keep, but you can also keep paying that monthly fee to upgrade to a new device. But there's also an even better deal available. If you don't care about insurance, the subscription is $9 a month — that's just $216 over the two years requried and way less than $350 up-front and unlocked price.

26 temporarily free and 27 on-sale apps and games for Wednesday

Welcome to Wednesday, everyone. While the middle of the week tends to be slower when it comes to interesting sales, I luckily still have a few standouts to share with everyone today. So if you're looking for a solid puzzler that stars an adorable hexapus (an octopus-like creature with six legs), Takoway is a fantastic pickup. If you prefer action-based shooting games, then Slaughter 3 is a well-reviewed choice. And if you're more interested in tangible hobbies, perhaps the stargazing app Stellarium Mobile PLUS is more your speed. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier.

Chrome exempts Google sites from user data settings — but supposedly it's just a bug

Chrome exempts Google sites from user data settings — but supposedly it's just a bug

Earlier this month, software developer Jeff Johnson wrote about a strange issue he'd discovered that allowed Chrome to keep certain data stored from Google sites like YouTube and Search even after it was supposed to be deleted. This isn't a good look from Google, especially in light of recent events — but the company has responded with an explanation.
