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!

Landrule

Today's app of the day is Landrule.

One thing I find, is that after starting this site, friends often suggest apps to me for review. Often, I have already recommended such apps, and other times they are rubbish, but every now and then a friend dishes up an absolute Jem (deliberate spelling mistake - Cheers Jem).  Landrule is one such app, that without a suggestion from a friend, would have probably gone un-noticed for many months, or even years, to come.

This is a great shame, because Landrule is one of the best android apps I have played in a while. I say this though, with a bit of a disclaimer. Really, what I mean is -  Landrule is one of the best apps you will play on android ..... if you are a fan of Risk (yep, you heard me right, the old fashioned, roll the dice, territory conquering board game).

In short,  Landrule is Risk, translated to your mobile device. You can play locally, either against computer AI or friends, but the real heart of the game is the online multi-player. Set up a new game, invite a few friends and before you know it you will have a great strategic game on your hands, far outclassing and weighing anything that Zynga (of words with friends fame) can produce.

There are plenty of game maps, time limits and player numbers to join, and if you cant find one you like, after starting your own it wont take long for a lobby to be filled and a game to be underway. The interface is extremely simply, yet provides all the functionality that is to be expected and the actual on game graphics, whilst plain, make it easy to see what is going on . Additionally, the notifications work brilliantly (something many android apps still seem to struggle with), allowing you to easily keep track on when it is time to make a move.

All in all, Landrule is a great app, which I can see myself sinking plenty of time into over the coming weeks / months / years. If you haven't already downloaded  Landrule, even if it doesn't sound like your sort of game, take a Risk (sorry for the pun) and see what you think!

 


 


In the words of the developer:


Landrule is a turn-based strategy game for Android. Similar to Age of Conquest and Risk.
You can play in a single-player mode, or against thousands of others in online multiplayer mode. A new pass-and-play mode lets you play against others locally on a single device!
New features on the way, making the classic Risk game more fun.
Maps include the classic Risk earth map, as well as a modified Antarctica map, and more.

To all users, please email the support address if you have any issues with the game. Marketplace won't let us respond to your comments here.
You can also send questions / comments to @pixamark on Twitter.

Pro-tips:
+You can make in-game animations faster by going into Settings -> Animation Speed. Pick "Lightning" for the fastest experience.
+If playing multiplayer, consider turning on push notifications. You'll get a notification when it's your turn to go. Do this by going to the Multiplayer page -> Turn Notifications -> and then turn them on there (android 2.2 and greater required).

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…
