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!

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 more of your precious data? To be honest - the jury is still out. I am yet to be given access to the app, but from the screen shots it looks great! I guess only time will tell whether it will truly knock other cloud storage solutions off their mantle, but being a Google product, it will absolutely give the competition a run for their money.

Whilst we wait for access to be granted, check out the screen shots below, and watch the video above. It is enough to make you want to switch to yet another Google product? I for one, at a minimum, will be giving it a try! Time Magazine have come up with five reasons why we should give Google Drive a try - check them out!

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…
