Google Is Finally Rolling Out App Promo Codes In The Play Store

For years, many of us have been bemoaning the lack of Play Store promo codes for Android apps. On the other side of the fence, iOS has had this feature forever. Now Google is getting with the program—promo codes have been added as an option in the Google Play developers console. That means you'll be able to input a code and get a free app or in-app content. Yay!

Netflix Will Block Proxies That Let Users Access Movies And TV Shows Not Available In Their Home Countries

Netflix is one of those American services that people in other countries are intensely jealous of if they can't get it. And with such a wide variety of TV shows (and at least a few dozen movies, too) for a few bucks a month, who could blame them? But now that Netlfix has expanded to literally hundreds of new countries and territories, there's no need to look longingly at the US anymore... or to use any of the elaborate web proxy workarounds to get access to the service outside of supported areas.

Now that Netflix has made its big international push, they're working on cutting down on that proxy use.

Perspective-Correcting Image Editor SKRWT Comes To Android

There are a lot of image editing apps on Android, and they all have mostly the same feature set. SKRWT offers something different that you might not realize you needed—and maybe you still don't. I'm torn on that, but the lens correction features in SKRWT have a lot of people excited.

[Engage] Star Trek Timelines Drops Out Of Warp In The Play Store

We covered the development of Disruptor Beam's Star Trek Timelines mobile game last year when they released a video intro hosted by none other than Q (John De Lancie). That game is finally available in the Play Store, and it's free. Well, free-ish. There are a boatload of in-app purchases, which is funny when you consider they don't even have money in the 24th century.

DotEmu Releases Classic Adventure Game 'I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream' On Android

DotEmu is in the habit of porting older but well-liked games to Android. With titles like R-Type, Double Dragon, and Another World under its belt, now we get something a bit more serious. I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream was released on PC in 1995, based on the 1967 short story of the same name by Harlan Ellison. You can probably gather from the name that this is not a feel-good sort of game.

Samsung Brings Wi-Fi Transfer App To The Play Store, An Offline Way To Share Files Between Devices

When I was making my way through grade school, getting files from one machine to another meant reaching for a floppy disk or a flash drive. By the time I got to college, we were exchanging data online. Today, there are any number of cloud services and apps dedicated to this one task. But most of them have a flaw: they require an Internet connection. Otherwise, it's back to pulling out that flash drive.

While there are USB sticks that work with Android phones, only a relatively small number of Android users have one of those lying around. However, a solid number of them have a Samsung device, and the manufacturer is now doing them a solid by releasing its own Wi-Fi Transfer app to Google Play.

[App-etizing] HelloFresh Chops Its Way To The Play Store, Spiced With Recipes And Weekly Meal Kits

HelloFresh is the kind of service that I would use in a heartbeat if I lived in the US or any of its other supported countries. I like fresh food, I love cooking, and I prefer variety and change to repetitiveness. However, I have little time to research new recipes, plan meals, and go to the store to buy every single ingredient needed to make everything. Plus, it's sometimes hard to find esoteric ingredients and even if I do, I'd only use them once or twice for very specific recipes. That'd be a waste.

HelloFresh aims to simplify that entire process by choosing some recipes for you, letting you pick the ones you like in the classic or vegetarian plan, finding and packing a week's worth of all the fresh ingredients needed, and delivering them to you.
