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!

RepliGo Reader

Today's app of the day is RepliGo Reader.


There are plenty of great PDF reader available for android devices, but I still find that some load pages (particularly large, full color pdf's of magazines) faster than others. Out of all I have tried, RepliGo Reader currently stands out as the fastest. On top of providing a great reading experience, RepliGo Reader also features some great extra capabilities, such as the ability to annotate and draw all over documents (ala the Galaxy Note).

If you want a reader that simply works, and does so quickly, then get RepliGo Reader.





In the words of the developer:

View, annotate and fill out forms in Adobe® PDF format while on the go!
RepliGo Reader enables PDF viewing, annotating and form filling. Review documents on the go by adding highlights, cross outs, underlines, sticky notes, arrows, lines, ovals, rectangles, freehand drawings and text boxes. Comments are stored as standard annotations in the original PDF file, just like Adobe® Acrobat®. Rep…

4 Player Reactor

Friday's app of the day was 4 Player Reactor. 


4 Player Reactor is hands down, some of the most fun you will have on your mobile friends (so long as you have a few friends with a competitive spirit). In short, 4 Player Reactor is a series of short, reaction based games, that you compete in against your friends. The concept sounds simple, but the execution is superb. This truly is one of the most unique experiences I have had on my android device to date, and I highly suggest anyone who is yet to give it a try - to do so - now!

Check out 2 Player Reactor if you want to to try a free version of this app before forking out the big bucks ($2.99)!




In the words of the developer:
Match your reflexes against your friends in many action-packed game modes! 4 Player Reactor is a fast, clean and funny reaction multiplayer game for two to four players on the same device. Challenge your friends (or enemies) to a battle of reflexes, wits and knowledge! Great as a bar game, ice breaker or to decide who…

Google Drive

Today's app of the day is Google Drive.


If you have not been keeping up to date with all the latest android news, you may not have noticed that Google has now stepped up the role it plays in the world of cloud storage. In contrast, if you have been keeping close tabs on your android device, then you would have likely noticed that Google Docs has undergone a major face life and re-branding and is now ubiquitously titled - Google Drive.

So what is Google Drive? For android users, Google Drive is the newest way to store all your files online, in the cloud, making them accessible from anywhere on the globe. Offering 5gb of space, plus the obvious benefits of being a Google product (and hence hopefully having seamless integration into android phones), Google Drive will be a strong competitor with other cloud storage apps such as Drop Box. The Guardian have written a great post on how Google Drive stacks up against the competition here.

So should you trust Google as the safekeeper of even …

Camera Zoom FX

Today's app of the day is Camera Zoom FX.


With Instagram now available on Android, photography has been given a new lease of life for many Android users. This aside, there is no denying that the default available effects for Instagram are limited, and often users find themselves wanting more creative options for their pics. This is where third party apps such as Camera Zoom FX step in, allowing users to take photos using the program, saving them to their gallery, then  uploading them through Instragram or other social networks.
Of all the apps out there that give users a variety of effects and editing features for, Camera Zoom FX, in my experience, is the most comprehensive, user-friendly, and powerful. After installing, the options you will have available for taking shots will be greatly increased - it will truly give your mobile camera a new lease on life!
Read the developers comments below, and give this app an install. It may cost a few $$, but for the features this application p…
