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 of the day is TweetComb.

No doubt, if you have an android tablet, one of the first things you looked for it a twitter client (presuming you are a Twitter user). OF course, the official Twitter app isn't bad, but it isn't utilised for a tablet. In fact, you will probably quickly realise (as I did), that not many Twitter apps are utilised for the android tablet experience.

This aside, there is one app that fills this void perfectly. This app is TweetComb (i.e. Tweet + Honeycomb). TweetComb makes great use of the screen real-estate offered by android tablets, as you will see in the screenshots below. Broken into columns, you will quickly be able to see your timeline, mentions, direct messages, favorites and other customisations as you desire.

These features aside, TweetComb features all the other standard features you would expect from a Twitter client. In short, if you have an android tablet and are a Twitter user, TweetComb is really your only choice. 

In the words of the developer:

TweetComb is a Twitter client designed and created exclusively for the Android Honeycomb platform. TweetComb gives you a tablet-friendly view of your Twitter timeline, mentions, direct messages, and more.
*** NOTE: You must have your date, time, timezone, and am/pm settings set up correctly on your device or Twitter will reject the authorization request. This application does work on every Honeycomb device. It will fail the authorization request with Twitter if these settings are set incorrectly, so please check them. ***
Features of TweetComb:
-- Interact with Twitter in a tablet-friendly way with the only Twitter experience designed for Honeycomb.
-- Read your timeline, mentions, and direct messages with three distinct fragments. Each fragment interacts with Twitter for updates independent of the others.
-- Background updates keep your information up to date on your tablet.
-- Configurable notifications alert you when new tweets, mentions, or direct messages are available.
-- You can easily see what's trending on Twitter and select each to do a search on the trending topic.
-- Stay up to date with the Twitter lists you've created with the new List tab.
-- support for link shortening.
-- TwitLonger support for tweets longer than 140 characters.
-- TweetComb provides an in-line preview of images from twitpic, yfrog, and plixi.
-- When clicking on a link from a tweet, you can view the web page from within TweetComb and can launch out to a browser on your tablet if you choose to.
-- View a user's public profile with an easy to use Profile tab.
-- A Search tab is available that gives you the opportunity to search by keyword, screen name, or hash tag.
-- Perform a Profile Search from an easy to access ActionBar item.
-- See a user's basic info, recent tweets, and publicly available favored tweets.
-- From the profile page, you can follow or unfollow other users.
-- When new tweets arrive, TweetComb will alert you with an audio clip.
-- TweetComb gives you an easy way to use and switch between multiple Twitter accounts.
-- From an individual tweet, you can view that user's profile, reply, retweet, retweet with edit, share, favorite, mark as spam, copy to clipboard, and send a direct message.
-- Quickly send status updates with full support for cut/copy/paste.
-- Support for sending and replying to direct messages inside the app.
-- TweetComb can be shared to from other apps such as the browser, Newsr, and others.

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…
