$3 'Twitter Blue' subscription may include Scroll news and better bookmarks, but not editable tweets

Last year, Scroll was launched as an all-new way to pay for some of your favorite publishers — including us! — while blocking ads. The app tells sites not to deliver advertisements to your browser using third-party cookies, improving the experience immensely. Big changes for Scroll are on the horizon, though, as Twitter has announced its plans to acquire Scroll.

New YouTube TV store tab shows off subscription options on smart TVs

YouTube TV is already fairly pricey, as cable-cutting services go. But if you want even more content on top of its standard live TV channels and on-demand video, you can add on more packages (just like old-fashioned cable TV, for better or worse). An interface tweak is making it easier to find these options on television, without having to search for them on a phone app or the web.

We spoke to the developer behind gReader, and here's what's happening

We spoke to the developer behind gReader, and here's what's happening

The developer behind gReader has broken his four-year silence regarding both the app's lack of updates, recent customer complaints regarding intrusive advertisements, and the move to a subscription model. We had the chance to talk to the developer about these changes and, in short, they considered it the only way to continue developing the app. However, although the old Pro version isn't available on the Play Store anymore, customers can still download it from the project's GitHub, and prior Pro owners will get a one-year subscription under the new model.

DC Comics sets its sights on Marvel Unlimited with the launch of DC Universe Infinite

Back in September 2018, DC Comics launched its subscription video streaming and digital comic service. This service was called DC Universe, and it was basically an all-in-one app for everything DC. Well, despite rough times for the company, DC has rebranded its DC Universe app into DC Universe Infinite to solely focus on the digital comic book side of the app. While all of the video content that used to exist in DC Universe has been moved to HBO Max, the comic book selection has expanded beyond the 24,000+ library to now include titles from the Black Label line as well as the Vertigo imprint.

Google Play Pass roundup: 25 of the best apps and games currently available on the service

Google Play Pass roundup: 25 of the best apps and games currently available on the service

Google Play Pass is a subscription service ($4.99 per month) that offers access to a vast selection of apps and games minus any advertisements and in-app purchases. Seeing that this service recently expanded to ten new territories, I've dug up a few of the more recent and notable listings for our Play Pass roundup. Initially, Google offered about 350 or so apps and games, but at this point, we've tracked at least 538 of them, and the list keeps growing. Of course, Google being Google, many of these titles are somewhat lackluster, which makes it difficult to know if the Play Pass subscription is worth it.
