[Incredibbble] Dribbble has acquired third-party Android app Rippple

I've come across Dribbble a few times in my online life, often when a budding designer shares a concept of an app or idea for all to see. The service seems like a mix between a social platform and a portfolio showcase where those with an artistic penchant can publish their designs, illustrations, photography, and other forms of scribbbles. But sadly, the lack of an official Android app used to crippple users from properly accessing the service on their smartphone so they had to resort to third-party apps.

Developed by Mathieu Marée, Rippple is the most popular Dribbble client on Android, and it's now being purchased by the service.

[Pawcket Dialing] Google Phone 9.0 hides a hilarious Paw Mode easter egg

While pawking around in the latest Google Phone 9.0, our resident APK master, Cody, uncovered one unexpected piece of evidence: paws. The animal kind. Cat and dog paws had infiltrated the installation file for seemingly no reason. This of course gave him pawse as he examined all the weird ways in which they could be used then came up empty. But we wouldn't be the Android Pawlice if we didn't have secret informants ready to do the dirty work on the ground and come back with hints and sometimes answers to our investigations. And this is what we're here to talk about: the paw mystery has been solved.

[Update: Android TV] This game is toast: I am Bread, from the makers of Surgeon Simulator, butters its way onto the Play Store

No matter how you slice and dice it, bread is awesome. And being bread, that's probably the dream, nay, the Holy Grain. Well, at least if you loaf bread as much as I do. See, I never knew I kneaded a game like this, but now that I know it exists, I can't wait to play it.

In "I am Bread," you control a slice of bread that's just doughing its best to survive the unsavory obstacles in its way.
