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!

Expense Manager - Keep track of your bills

Today's app of the day is Expense Manager.

Ever find that keeping track of when bills need to be paid is a logistical nightmare? I know I sometimes do. Of course it is possible to set up direct debits for everything, but all it takes is a few unexpected expenses, and before you know it bills are getting rejected because there is nothing left in the account. For that reason, although I could probably set up direct debit for all my expenses, I still seem to spend 15 minutes or so every pay day transferring money all over the country (and in fact world) paying off bills.

Unfortunately, those who issue bills don't always align their due dates neatly with pay periods, so it is often necessary to be able to keep track of when bills are due, and for how much. This should be easy, but with a month not always being 4 weeks or 30 clean days, things can still get messy. The solution? Welcome Expense Manager.

In a nutshell, expense manager allows you to program in your income and bills, so that with a quick glance it is possible to see what bills or expenses are coming up on the horizon. Even better, reminders can be set to automatically alert you to make certain transfers - this is great for expenses that fall mid month or in off pay periods. For more "power" users, the program could technically be used to accurately track the amount left in bank accounts and to budget for future expenses, however I am yet to try these functions out.

Instead, I simply like using the app as a handy and intuitive way to track my bill payments.




According to the developer, features include:

• Tracking expenses and incomes by week, month and year as well as by categories
• Multiple accounts
• Schedule the payments and recurring payments
• Take a picture of receipt
• Payment alerts
• Budget
• Search and reports
• Import and export account activities
• Cloud (Android 2.2+) and SD Card backup
• Customize expense categories, payer/payer, payment methods, etc
• Charts
• Widgets

From my brief time with Expense Manager it is definitely worth a recommendation.

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…
