PPSSPP, the PSP emulator, passes 50 million installs on the Play Store

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

Most of the apps that pass 50 million downloads on the Play Store are ones from major companies, but not this time. The newest app to join the 50 million club is PPSSPP, the popular open-source emulator for the Sony PlayStation Portable.

PPSSPP has been in active development for a few years, created by Henrik Rydgård (one of the co-founders of the GameCube/Wii emulator Dolphin). Like all console emulators, it took a while to get commercial games running, but compatibility is pretty good these days.

LendingClub, a peer-to-peer loans platform, just launched its Android app for investors

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

"Alternative investing" is all the rage these days, and Lending Club is one of the most interesting examples. At its simplest, it's a peer-to-peer loan system, where investors provide loans to individuals via the platform. Those borrowers make payments as investors earn a return. And LendingClub has just launched an Android app, making it that much easier for investors to access their accounts.

The advantages and disadvantages of alternative investment platforms like LendingClub are a post for another day, but the addition of the Android app is sure to be useful for those already using it.

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

The war between Instagram and Snapchat rages on, and the newest weapon in Instagram's arsenal is the introduction of Face Filters to Live. So the next time you need to jump into a live broadcast to your friends, you'll be able to provide an appropriate sense of gravitas with a pair of rabbit ears. 

The feature appears to work almost exactly as you'd expect. They're Face Filters — an entertaining overlay that follow you as you move — but soon you can use them in live broadcasts.

Welcome, everyone, to an impromptu app sales post. You may have noticed that yesterday's was missing, and for that I apologize. To make it up to all of you, I compiled a list for today with all of the apps that I could find that have gone on sale since Monday — the normal scheduling will resume tomorrow (and it will likely be very short).

Both Apps of the Week also make an appearance.

A year and a day: The short history of Google’s Allo

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

Allo was released on Google Play just over a year ago, on September 20th. It suffered a bit at the hands of hype between its early announcement at 2016's I/O and the actual release, which didn't come for months. But since then it has been a major part of the conversation when it comes to Android. Google made a big decision and faced a lot of criticism when it resolved to launch another messaging service.

Google is testing a new search suggestions design and it looks cluttered

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

What's another week without another Google app server-side test that few will see and even fewer will like? In today's edition, we have a new search suggestions look in the Google app and search widget: blue words inside a rounded rectangle (TIL the shape is called a stadium) at the bottom of the search suggestions overlay.

We've only received reports of this design from two readers, so it doesn't look to be widespread and that's a good thing in my opinion.

Ever since the Essential phone and                                                             X were announced, do you find yourself staring longingly at your fully rectangular display (rounded corners don't count) and wish, just hope, that part of it would disappear and you'd get a black notch up top?
