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!

Urban Dictionary


Today's app of the day is Urban Dictionary

Urban Dictionary has, for a long time been a popular website, useful for obtaining a quick explanation of almost every pop-culture term imaginable. In short, it is a user generated dictionary of urban slang. 

As an example, a quick "copy and paste" from http://www.urbandictionary.com/ reveal a few "word-of-the-day(s)":

NOVEMBER 15
Referring to a subject mentioned from an earlier text message.
Hey Margo, I want to apologize for the aforetexted gibbersh I sent you a few hours ago -- it was late and I'd had far too much cherry rubinoff.

NOVEMBER 14
A friend of a friend of yours. Someone you have yet to meet, but is friends with your friend. Someone you share a mutual friend with. Someone you share a mutual buddy with.
Oh your friends with (insert mutual friends name)? That makes us buddy in-laws!

NOVEMBER 13
The eleventh month of the year, formerly known as November.
Brovember is a month dedicated to guys doing "guy things" such as watching football, going fishing, climbing mountains, and grillin.
During the month of Brovember, a man is exempt from feminine activities in order to strengthen the bonds between his bros.
"Sorry guys, no poker tonight. My wife wants me to go the opera, tonight."

I will admit, a lot of the definitions are not as wholesome as those above, but you get the idea. In either case, I find that I can always get a good laugh out of some of the definitions, and for that reason, have the Urban Dictionary widget on my home screen, right next to FML for some quick access to instant humor. 

 

If you are easily offended, then I would not suggest downloading this app, as many of the definitions are quite crude. However, if you are intrigued by pop culture or are the type of person that enjoys it when new words are created in TV-shows (i.e. such as the Inbetweeners) or if you make new words yourself in the hope that they spread among your friends (I do not do this), then  Urban Dictionary is for you. More than anything, if you enjoy a good laugh, download  Urban Dictionary and give it a try. You might even learn something!

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…
