File Expert with Clouds

Today's app of the day is File Expert with Clouds.


There are countless file managers available for android devices, all of which manage to do very similar things. Primarily, this means being able to browse the file structure on your device and move things around with some basic copy, cut and past functionality. For anyone who has tried to do this though, it quickly become obvious that the Android file structure is completely unintuitive. Things  simply end up looking like a complete mess with different apps storing similar file types in completely different locations. In short, there is a better way.

That better way of managing the files on your Android device is File Expert with Cloud. For starters, if you don't want to have to browse through the Android file structure, File Expert with Cloud will scan your drives and locate files of various types (images, videos, music) and then clump those files together in an easy to browse format. This ultimately means it does not matter how messy the files are on your device - File Expert with Cloud will do the heavy listing and make browsing this simple!

That is only the beginning though, as File Expert with Cloud is not only one of the most popular file browsers around, but is also one of the most feature packed. One of the best features is the 'cloud' functionality. You can say goodbye to 10 different apps to manage all your various cloud storage solutions. Instead, with  you can access all the most popular cloud storage services directly from the app and browse with them the same ease as lcoal files. Support currently exists for Google Drive, Dropbox, Box.net, SkyDrive, SugarSync, Ubuntu One, meaning accessing your files from anywhere has never been easier. 


In addition to the powerful capabilities of this app (read the description if you are not convinced), the best thing is possibly the design. This app looks great and has more than enough customization settings to keep even the most 'picky' android user happy. One feature I found great was the ability to tag files and then group them together on custom made tabs. This was great for getting quick access to files that I open frequently. Root users won't be disappointed, with File Expert with Cloud allowing full root access, letting power-user tinker with files as they wish.

All in all, this is a fantastic android file manager. Check it out today.

Tiny Helicopter

Today's app of the day is Tiny Helicopter.


There are plenty of addictive games available for android devices, particularly since the rise and dramatic fall of Flappy Bird, with many developers creating chip rip-offs of the bird and pipe formula. The one thing that many of these games (including Flappy Bird), is that although they may be addictive they are not very much fun. In fact, they are not fun at all! 

Tiny Helicopter looks to break that mold, by taking the classic Flappy Bird formula but my actually making it an enjoyable gaming experience. Of course the game is still challenging and definitely gives players that 'just one more try' type of feel, but the difficulty is at the perfect level. Not too hard, not too easy - just right to keep you wanting to come back.

The concept is simple. You have to fly a helicopter through a series of caverns / cliffs. As you pass each one you get a point, with the goal being to break your your own top scores. The controls are also simple, with one touch all you need to give your helicopter a slight boost and jump. The control of the helicopter feels eally good. Coming from a round of Swing Copter (the 'sequel' to Flappy Bird)r which has atrocious controls , it was refreshing to find the developer has things in this department working well.

The game also looks and sounds great, with simply but effective graphics and the same for the sound track and backing  music. All in all, a great game well worth checking out.



In the words of the developer:

Tap the screen to fly the tiny helicopter through mountains.
Try to get the helicopter as far as you can and earn lots of points!
Test your skills in this fun and challenging to play game!
