Beautiful Widgets

Today's app of the day is Beautiful Widgets.

For anyone who has logged onto the android market over the last few days, you may have noticed a great sale that is on to celebrate ten billion downloads from the market. How does Goggle celebrate this milestone? Well, by "selling" 10 different apps for 10 days in a row, with all apps costing only 10 cents!

Best of all, these aren't the type of apps that you would usually not bother to buy - no, google are including in the market those apps that have always tempted you in the past with $1 - $4 price tags, but the ones that you never quite got around to buying.

Well, now is your opportunity to stock up on some premium apps, for next to nothing, so go check it out! 

Back on topic, by the time you read this, the sale for Beautiful Widgets will probably be over, but that doesn't mean it isn't worth paying full price for. In short, Beautiful Widgets is a clock and weather widget replacement for the home screen (well any screen really) of your device. In many ways, it mimics the standard clocks and weather widgets that come packaged with HTC sense UI, however with hundreds of downloadable skins and customisations, there are endless options on how Beautiful Widgets can personalise your home screen.

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.
