The next big change is coming soon as Google prepares to go take another step on the path it began with the last major update, and it’s going to be called Tiles.

It was originally released on consoles and PC at the beginning of 2018, and as of today, it has arrived on the Google Play Store.

Writing about farts is stinky business, but let’s all be professional here. I believe we can make it through one post about gas without dumping a ton of shitty puns… Oops, at least I tried. So we’re here to discuss a new Android app, Fartr, which is the fart app to record, analyze, and (uhm) share your farts. You may think we’re joking, but this is very serious.
The idea is so simple I’m surprised no one came up with it before. Read MoreLet it rip: Fartr is the toot analyzer you never knew you wanted was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
Grimvalor is a popular mobile hack and slash platformer that was originally released on iOS at the end of 2018. On the Apple App Store the game is available with an upfront price, though the new early access Android release forgoes that style of monetization to offer the download and first act for free, and if you decide that you enjoy the game, you can unlock all five of its acts through a single in-app purchase priced at $6.99.

Home security cameras are common these days, but they’re often spendy. Wyze made waves a while back by offering a basic but effective security camera for just $20. The Wyze cam is now getting some company in the form of a home sensor system that also costs $20.
The Wyze Sense kit ships with a motion sensor and two contact sensors (for doors or windows). There’s also a bridge hub that links the sensors to your Wyze cameras, which you probably already have if you buy the Wyze sensors.
