Enhances the Google Play Store™ with various features.
-= Description =-
Toolbox for Google Play Store™ (TGPS) has the following features:
1. APKMirror, Android Police, and Appbrain buttons are added to all Play Store app pages. All the buttons are optional and can be toggled from the settings.
2. Beta status button. TGPS will tell you if an app you're looking at offers a beta program and whether you're part of the beta. Just like before, this function is optional and can be disabled in the settings.
3. Screenshot enhancements. TGPS adds a horizontal scrollbar to the screenshot gallery on app pages.
4. Language/region picker. This adds dropdown menus to the Play Store for changing the current display language and country/region, allowing you to check international prices and other information.
The extension was developed by the team at AndroidPolice.com and APKMirror.com.
