FaceApp - despite the controversy there's a reason it is popular!

FaceApp is high in the ranks of then Google Play store at the moment, and despite the controversies of white-washing, there's a reason. In short, it's really fun, simple to use and an all round well-designed app that has some great filters and effects.
The purpose of the app is simple - simply load it up, take a photo, play with a few dials and then before you know it there's your desired outcome - whether it be a new gender, a younger self, an older self - etc. You name it - FaceApp can do it.
Check it out today, it's one of those apps well worth downloading and spending a few minutes with!

Folder Organiser

Today's app is Folder Organiser

This is one of those apps that I purchased on the first day I got my droid, and have not stopped using since. The primary reason for this is simple - it does exactly what it states on the box, and it does it well!

Folder organiser essentially allows you to remove the awful default icon that appears whenever a new folder is created for your home screen, and instead replace it something far more attractive!

Got a folder of games? Then it makes sense to have a little game controller for the icon! Got a folder of social networking apps? Then again, it makes sense to have something more "social" as the application icon than the default android stock folder.

Now, being able to pimp out your home screen is only the beginning. Essentially, in order to create folder you put applications under headings called "labels". Following this, every time you install a new application folder organiser will automatically ask you (via the notifications screen) to choose which "label" the new application will sit under.

Assuming then, you have 3 or 4 different labels on your home screens (or about 12 if you are a big fan of folders like myself), there is no need to constantly drag new apps into existing folders once they are installed. By simply following the instructions in the notifications that appear after installing each app, your new programs will automatically appear in your existing folders. It may sound complicated, but trust me, it's not.

You can set certain apps to appear in your notification bar permanently which isn't a bad feature, and you can arrange your icons on your home screen in a variety of customisable widgets. Once this app is installed and set up, you will wonder why one earth custom icons are not a stock element of android!

Wish - shopping made fun - and easy - and cheap!

These days sites like Amazon or eBay make buying and selling online quick and easy. Unfortunately, sometimes the sheer breadth of products available (everything on earth!) makes it difficult to impulse buy or get the same experience one haves when wandering around a shop or past windows. Luckily, apps now exist to replicate that experience.

The best of the lot is Wish - which has the tagline 'shopping made fun' which could not be more true! When opening the app there are lots of categories to choose from, allowing you to pick the type of products you want to browse and going from there. Buying and checking out is only ever a few clicks away and if you are not careful you will very quickly load up on more products than you need!

I've launched sites that help out with buying cheap gadgets in the past, and it was heavily inspired by apps such as Wish which really allow someone to sit back and take pleasure in the shopping experience again! Download Wish now!

Cosmic Cow

Today's app of the day is Cosmic Cow.

"Endless" games are very in vogue at the moment, whether it be endless running, endless jumping or endless flapping, there are plenty of ways to get unlimited, and challenging gaming fixes. That doesn't mean that there aren't great new games being created in the genre, with Cosmic Cow being one such example.

In essence, Cosmic Cow combines two great styles of game play, one being a side scrolling endless-type game, and the other being the classic side scrolling space ship shooter, popularised in numerous incarnations on 8 and 16 bit consoles of decades past. As a "cosmic cow" (can't help but love it!), the player has to navigate through space, shooting or dodging asteroids and other attacking spaceships. The cow can collect a variety of objects to earn points - though mainly interesting foods that just happen to be floating through space. As points are accumulated, the player can also collect coins to spend on a v…
