Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath is currently 10p
Best 10p I've ever spent! Amazing game
No, it'd be a bit pointless if it had all the features of the full version!
Never heard of it but for 10p it's worth a punt.
Google posted the wallpaper app from the Pixel phones: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.wallpaper
Looks amazing and you can set it to change daily.
anyone know if it's possible to steam the content from say netflix phone app to your chromecast tv device, but at the same time stream the netflix audio to a chromemase audio device?
video isnt streamed unless you cast the screen. When you use netflix for example, the app on your phone will tell the chromecast what to play and where to get it and the chromecast will go off and do it's thing.
Even with casting the screen though, you cant cast to more than one device at a time.
In prep for receiving my new pixel xl tomorrow which I'm planning start afresh I'm looking for some essential apps. Happy to pay for apps too as I should be getting a £50 play store voucher too.
First thing I'd like to know what is the best anti virus/ security app? I currently use avg free version.
none. google is a virus checker. if they find an app is bad, they will destroy it from existence and you'd not even know. same with battery apps, phone speed up apps etc, all are totally 100% undeniably useless
What about if you download a file which has a virus?
Does anyone know how to disable wifi or bluetooth from the notifications when the phone is locked on android 7.0? i swear google have been so dumb with this. on andoid 5 you had to long hold to enable, and tap would take you to settings. on 6 they fixed this, tap would enable disable quickly. on 7 it's gone to the worst style yet. if you have the notifications pulled down is the only time the icons quick disable/enable, but if the full quick settings are pulled down, you have to click the bluetooth icon, wait for the bluetooth settings to load up, then click the enable/disable button., then back back back to where you were. hate this.
I see what you mean. Stick to the playstore and I will be fine. Do not download dodgy apks, or any apks for that matter.
i download apks all the time but i just do it from sites i can clearly trust. i've never known the need to download anything dodgy from dodgy sites. if there are legit reasons fair enough, but i just can't imagine any.
the playstore isnt immune but staying clear of dodgy looking clone apps is usually enough to avoid any issues.
I was also going to ask for recommendations for email, calendar and notes app but then was thinking that Google provides these...
Are there much better alternatives? It's quite nice using googles apps as I can follow things up/amend notes on my computer through google also.
Gmail and Keep works fine for me but for calendar I use Today Calendar. Still requires the Google Calendar for sync however, but the UI is much nicer to use. Messenger is fine but Textra offers a litte more customisation.
I will check out that calendar. Currently I use Solcalendar which I quite like. Haven't found one I love yet.
Thanks for this. Looks excellent; didn't even know Google had this app.
Installed the app whilst on the way to work. It is quite basic and does what it sets out to do well enough. You can change either the lock screen or the home screen wallpapers easily.
If you've got a Pixel and stay with Google apps as much as possible. But that's probably me being OCD
I use Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Keep, Google Chrome, Google Play Music, Google Photos, Google Drive (paid). Can't really fault any of them to be honest.
