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!

MusiXmatch

Today's app of the day is MusiXmatch.

MusiXmatch claims to be the worlds biggest lyric database - right in your pocket, and my initial impressions are that this claim is correct.

MusiXmatch features the usual features to be expected from such a "lyrics database" (i.e being easily able to search for lyrics) but also includes a few additional excellent features.

Primarily, the ability to browse "trending" lyrics or add favourites are great features, but the real killer feature of MusiXmatch is its integration into the music experience on your device (I will explain after the pics).


 

So, the killer feature? Well it makes sense, but was a neat surprise when I first noticed. In short, whenever you play a song on your device, a new notification appears and the lyrics of the song will immediately appear on the screen. This is a great feature and brings back some of the nostalgia of sitting by a CD player reading the lyrics from inside the jewel case. It's been a long time since I listened to an album and read the lyrics as it played, but MusiXmatch brought this experience back for me, which is brilliant!

 

In the words of the developer:

Integrated with your favourite music app. More than 5m lyrics in your pocket!

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…
