Etsy adds Android Pay support

Etsy adds Android Pay support

Mar 24, 2017

Good news for Etsy users: now, it is possible to complete mobile transactions via Android Pay.

This change comes with an update available now.

Per the blog post detailing the new feature:

We’re always looking at ways to make the checkout experience as seamless as possible, especially for shoppers on mobile devices. Android Pay makes it easy for buyers to check out by eliminating the need to enter card details when using the Etsy app: buyers just use a fingerprint or enter a PIN, password or pattern to authorize a transaction. Users’ card information stays secure, and all card benefits from purchases (like points or miles) stay the same.

In order to take advantage of this new checkout option, buyers must have the Android Pay app installed on their device and have a supported card added to their wallet in the app.

Three cheers for increased functionality. Etsy is free on Google Play.

Super Mario Run finally arrives on Android

Super Mario Run finally arrives on Android

Mar 23, 2017

Hold the presses: Super Mario Run is it now for Google Play users.

Finally, Nintendo!

We’d like to pretend like it isn’t a big deal, but hey… this is major stuff. It’s only the game with the biggest buzz of 2017… the one game that underscored the ever-shrinking app gap.

And what do we get? Well, Super Mario Run promises to be the one Mario titled game you can play hard — with one hand. It’s all about tapping to jump to avoid, collect and advance. Run, left to right, in an engaging, varying 2D environment that mimics an arcade experience.

Very, very Mario-ish.

Hey, don’t mind us. Get to it… we are. You should know it’s free with in-app purchases.

In the mean time, check out the trailer below:

Calling all anglers: Bass Fishing 3D II is here!

Mar 23, 2017

If there were a developer that could claim the ownership of the title King of fishing games, Pascal Inc. would, at the very least, come pretty close. With several fishing-related games under its belt, it’s great that we gey yet another: Bass Fishing 3D II.

This one looks to a worthy successor to Bass Fishing 3D, boasting graphics evolved from the original.

Per the press release:

2) Introduction of the underwater camera enables one to watch underwater by him or herself, never going wrong with the selection of lures to capture the targeted fish.
3) Totally renewed fighting-system:
One can handle the rod according to the movement of the bass. Reel in fish at the best time!
4) More varieties in game modes:
Tournaments: Compete against worldwide players and compare fishing results.
Missions: Challenge the missions in the 120 levels.
Free Fishing: Enjoy fishing in one’s favorite waters at his or her own pace.
