Welcome to the last full week of October. Halloween is just around the corner, meaning that those noisy decorations at Target and Walmart will soon be replaced with Christmas trees and such. Anyway, since it's Monday, we have some app sales to get through. Today's list features a couple of goodies, including the fantastic platformer Trine 2. The only caveat is that it's only compatible with the Nvidia Shield TV, so keep that in mind before purchasing.

[Update: Listing restored] A DMCA failure: Play Store automated takedowns hit indie app 'Always On Display AMOLED'

Google's history of providing support to Android developers that run into issues on the Play Store is pretty abysmal. If you have the clout of Facebook or Netflix, your whims are individually catered to, but independent developers get the short end of the automated-support stick. Yesterday, yet another indie Android app, Always On Display AMOLED, was kicked to the curb in what appears to be an overzealous, automated DMCA takedown, and in true Google fashion, the affected developer is left without recourse or a means for dispute.

It may have lessened in popularity following the launch of Fortnite and other similar games, but it still has a respectable following.

[Update: Fixed] Pre-registration on the web version of the Play Store is broken for many

Usually, pre-registering to be notified of an app's release is a simple click of a button over on the Play Store, but for some reason, that usually straightforward process seems to have hit a snag. For many, selecting pre-register on a Play Store app listing doesn't actually appear to do anything. On refresh, the relevant button flips right back to say "pre-register" again.

Google breaks Settings Suggestions out into its own app [APK Download]

The Settings menu/app on Android phones has evolved quite a bit in recent years. Starting in Android 8.1 it got a search bar that made digging for individual settings a bit easier, and in Android N it got suggestions to help encourage you to enable things like a lock screen, finish the setup process, or explore additional customization options. Google even reserved some secret sauce for search and suggestions on its Pixels, and now it's breaking that out into its own app called Search Suggestions.
