The Play Store has been in the news more than usual recently, but this time it's for a positive reason. The latest version of the app reveals that Google is working on a few changes to the "My Apps" section of the Play Store, including the ability for users to send apps to friends offline through the use of peer-to-peer file sharing.

Paying and getting paid is easier than ever, but the various apps you can choose to transact with have their upsides and downsides. Picking one can be difficult, and signing up for all of them even more so — especially when it often means convincing friends and family to do so as well. But old school bank ACH transfer tools are for the birds, and cold, hard cash remains a dicey proposition in the current environment. Splitting the bill with cash is also just a pain, and newer peer to peer (P2P) payment apps are so much more convenient that it's truly silly in 2020 not to be using one.
Sharing files can be a pain. And that pain increases the bigger the file it is, the more unusual the file type, and when you are trying to move the file from one operating system to another. Thankfully, the developers of Send Anywhere have made it a breeze. Even better, it won't cost you a cent.
Facebook has introduced a new way for friends to swap cash with one another that doesn't involve meeting in person, writing a check, or even opening up another app. With the new payments feature, they can send and receive money directly inside of Messenger. And it won't cost them a thing.
T-Mobile likes to call most of its plans "unlimited," but only a few of them actually have unlimited access to LTE speeds. These plans include unlimited bandwidth, but that doesn't mean you can do whatever you want. The terms and conditions prohibit the use of p2p file sharing, and now a leaked internal memo points to a new offensive against such violations. Beginning August 17th, T-Mobile goes to war against torrents.
