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!

AdSense Dashboard

Today's app of the day is AdSense Dashboard.

If you run a website or write a blog, there is a distinct possibility you use Google AdSense to try and earn a little extra pocket money from that endeavour. I surely do (hence the ads on the side of your screen and below posts). Typically, when a user clicks an add, the owner (i.e. Me!) will receive anywhere from 5 cents to $2 per click through. In short, the higher the Click Through Rate (CTR), the more money a site owner can make.

Once you have a website and have added a few AdSense Ads, it is quite addictive keeping track of your sites statistics to see how much you have earn't. I know I find myself doing it at least every single day, usually multiple times (and the results are ALWAYS disappointing!).

Google have created a quick mobile version of their AdSense site, but it doesn't quite give me all the information I want, as quickly as I want it. Enter AdSense Dashboard. With the press of a screen, or the flick of a finger, I can now quickly see exactly how much I have earn't in a day, and scroll through all the useful statistics for my site. And if I can do it, so should you, as this is a real time saver. Trust me!

Featuring as great widget and a simple, intuitive interface, AdSense Dashboard contains everything you would want from an an AdSense App. All in all, if you use Google Adwords and own an android device, then you would be crazy not to have AdSense Dashboard installed.





In the words of the developer:

A secure, read-only dashboard view of the performance of your AdSense account.
Provides a heads-up overview over critical AdSense performance metrics, including CPM, CTR, page views, clicks, and estimated revenue, in easily-digestible form. Includes a desktop widget showing today's vital statistics.
Uses Google's AdSense Management API to provide a secure, read-only view of your data.
Supports phones with large screens, tablets, and now Google TV (for those that want an always-on dashboard for their office).
Provides most of the content of the AdSense home page and the default report.
To use this application you must:
- Have a working, stable network connection (known bug)
- Have an existing AdSense account
- Have the Google Account associated with that account configured as an account on your phone.
Crashes are *not* common - but if you see one, please email me. I can't fix if you don't help, and a comment here isn't a bug report - I can't get useful problem logs because it's sensitive data, so I can't find and fix bugs without an email from *you*.
Send problem reports to gblock@ctoforaday.com and I'll fix them as fast as is humanly possible.
Known issues:
- You can't change currency. (We show your AdSense account's currency.)
Features to come:
- Single-fact 1x1 widget

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…
