Fortnite Mobile on Android launch might be inviting trouble

YouTube dark mode comes to Android at long last

YouTube dark mode comes to Android at long last

You would think that being owned by Google means that YouTube would prioritize adding features on Google’s platforms.

And yet that was exactly the case with YouTube’s dark mode, which is already available everywhere except Android. Well, that changes now, at least for the lucky few that have the feature rolling out to their Android phones.

Attack of the zombie apps: unmaintained and rotting in stores

Attack of the zombie apps: unmaintained and rotting in stores

Mobile app stores kicked off the most recent digital gold rush. It was a market that was almost easy to break into and, if you’re lucky, profit from. But as the dust slowly settled and the market stabilized, some developers were left disillusioned, penniless, or simply bored. Many just walked away towards the next big thing (like VR), abandoning their once carefully crafted apps. And now we’re left with a growing pile of unmaintained apps that both pose a threat and, at the same time, still hold some nuggets of gold we need to mine.

But beyond Android being a slightly less important platform for Fortnite's developers, it wasn't immediately clear what the holdup was between then and now. It would seem that Samsung might've had something to do with it.
