Minecraft Earth Early Access available now in the UK and more countries

The success of Pokemon GO opened up a new mobile gaming market that many want to cash in on. But as the reception of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite proved, not even developer Niantic Labs itself is always able to replicate that success. Many have tried to use that same collection and location-based formula and almost all have failed. Microsoft-owned Mojang is now also trying to get its and your feet wet with Minecraft Earth and it is now making its unique spin available in nine more locations around the world.

Pigeon is a crowdsourced transit app experiment from Google Area 120

Pigeon is a crowdsourced transit app experiment from Google Area 120

If Google Maps is for locating places, Waze is for navigating the roads and highways to get there. Not everyone, however, drives or even use ride-hailing services like Uber or Lyft. While trains and buses are unlikely to stray off the beaten path, they are at the mercy of delays and incidents that could catch riders unawares. That's where the Pigeon app comes in to alert riders of any problem and maybe even prevent them from losing their cool, too. All with a little help from other riders.

Microsoft Office mobile app combines Word, Excel, PowerPoint in one

Microsoft Office mobile app combines Word, Excel, PowerPoint in one

Microsoft announced a great many things at its IGNITE conference but some might be disappointed by a distinct lack of the dual-screen Surface devices or even Windows 10X. Of course, that doesn't mean it is yet again ignoring the mobile market and has, in fact, one particularly curious announcement prepared. It has just started the public beta testing of a new mobile app for Office that, on the surface, seems to simply combine three Office apps into one. That, however, belies the paradigm shift that Microsoft is trying to push to mobile.

Adobe Illustrator confirmed for iPad, following in Photoshop’s footsteps

Photoshop for iPad rolls out to everyone as Adobe launches cloud documents

Photoshop for iPad rolls out to everyone as Adobe launches cloud documents

After months of testing, Adobe is finally ready to send Photoshop for iPad live for all users. At its annual MAX conference today, the company announced version 1.0 of the app, officially releasing it on the App Store. It’s been a pretty long road to get to this point - the iPad version of Photoshop was first revealed in October 2018 and went into testing back in May 2019. It’s been in testing for the last half-year, so Adobe certainly put the app through its paces before launching it.

Mario Kart Tour multiplayer beta arrives in December, but only if you pay up

Back in September, Mario Kart Tour launched for iOS and Android without a component many consider critical to the Mario Kart experience: multiplayer. Racing against other humans is one of the main draws of the Mario Kart franchise as a whole, so it was definitely strange to see Mario Kart Tour launch without it. Nintendo will be fixing that particular oversight in December, launching a real-time multiplayer beta at some point during the month.

iOS 13.2 might be more aggressive in killing background apps

iOS 13.2 might be more aggressive in killing background apps

It seems that Apple still isn't free of the curse of iOS 13 which, in retrospect, should have probably skipped the number. iOS 13.2 was released just a few days ago and, aside from bricking HomePod speakers, it seemed almost uneventful for iPhone and iPad owners. It was, perhaps a premature evaluation as a growing number of users are now complaining of the platform's aggressive memory management that is causing apps to be killed when left in the background even for just a short while.

iOS 13.2.1 rolls out to stop bricking HomePods

iOS 13.2.1 rolls out to stop bricking HomePods

Just when you thought the nightmares of broken iOS 13 updates are finally over, along comes iOS 13.2. Admittedly, the set of owners affected by a bug that can brick HomePods may be significantly smaller than those that beset iPhone users in the past few weeks. Still, it's a rather stressful experience for owners causing Apple to actually pull out the update before quickly replacing it with iOS 13.2.1 just two days later.
