Transit tickets have been showing up in our Google PayAPK teardowns since October of last year, finally appearing for the first time with support for the Las Vegas Monorail. The premise is simple: instead of having to purchase a physical ticket and topping it up for public transportation, users can tap their NFC-enabled phones against the terminal and use a sort of 'virtual card' instead. After it was unveiled that Google Pay would soon support public transit in Portland, Oregon, it is now possible to use the Hop Fastpass app to ride on TriMet, C-TRAN buses, MAX light rail trains, WES commuter rail trains, Portland Streetcar, and C-TRAN's Vine Rapid Transit with Google Pay.
Paying bills is a monthly burden that doesn't need any help whatsoever with being a pain in the rear. But living with roommates can amplify the difficulty. You have to track them down (if they're not particularly responsible) or deal with the unpleasant task of asking in the first place (even if they are). Unbill is a new Android app that seeks to erase both of these issues.
Unbill, which is invite-only and currently limited to Eugene, Oregon (hey, at least it's not San Francisco), splits bills and does the math, alerting each user how much they owe and when. Recipients can then pay using the app.
The Men Who Wear Many Hats may have struck undead gold with their debut entry into Google's Play Store. Organ Trail is pretty much what it sounds like – a take on the classic nostalgia-fest that is the Oregon Trail, but with zombies, bandits, and an upgradeable station wagon. The game, which started on the web, hit Android recently, delivering the same epic experience players of the original would expect.
Bringing to Android the "delicious Apple 2 pixel art" and "retro beeps and boops" players of the Oregon Trail love, Organ Trail: Director's Cut offers hours and hours of gameplay through desolate landscapes full of zombies in which players are susceptible not only to the undead, but to dysentery and 9 other diseases.
