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!


Today's app is SwipePad.

Out of all the apps on my phone, this would probably be one of the most frequently used. As you may have guessed from my previous posts, I am a big fan of being able to access apps quickly, and rarely revert to actually scrolling through my application menu. Why? I guess my primary motivation is, why take 10 seconds for something that can be achieved in 2... simple really!

And this is where SwipePad steps in. Have some favourite contacts? Some common GPS locations? Frequently used bookmarks, and popular apps? Want to be able to access them with the quick click of a finger from any homescreen, but also from within any running application (without closing the application)?

Install SwipePad, and with the "swipe" of a finger from any chosen point around the edge of the screen, a grid will appear with your choice of apps/bookmarks/locations, etc. I find that swiping from the bottom of the screen up works best. This is primarily because swiping down from the top often will drop the notification bar, and swiping from the sides will often scroll home screens. Swiping up however (on my HTC Desire HD), will always bring up my SwipePad grid for quick access to my favorite apps.

The stock, free, version of SwipePad will give you access to a grid with 9 slots. I paid a couple of $$ extra for an add on which gave me access to a grid with 20 slots, however this can be expanded even further depending on the screen real-estate on your phone. Overall a great app, and once set up to your liking, I can assure will be used on a daily basis!

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…
