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!

Spotify

Today's app of the day is Spotify.

Spotify is the future of music. After being skeptical at first, I am now convinced that traditional MP3 downloads will quickly become a thing of the past, and instant access to almost every song every recorded is the way of the future.In fact, the future is already here.

With Spotify, you have access to over 15 million tracks no matter where you are, so long as you have a data connection available. The desktop application is quite amazing, and has become my music player of choice. Although the android app is missing a few features (such as application support, radio, etc), it is still a fantastic app, giving you access to more music than a person could listen to in a  lifetime, all for free!


In the words of the developer:

Spotify brings millions of tracks to Android. Your music is always with you.
Get free access to Spotify Premium now! With Premium you'll get access to 15 million tracks from thousands of albums and artists on your Android device.…

Riptide GP

Today's app of the day is Riptide GP.


If you are after a console quality gaming experience on your tablet, then you can not go past Riptide GP. The graphics in this game are up there with the ps3 in terms of quality, and the gameplay is equally as high. To think that this game can be purchased for 99cents (currently on sale), when a console equivalent would cost 50 times more, is outrageous and really signifies the challenge that more traditional developers are going to face in the future as mobile gaming becomes more sophisticated!

Anyway, that aside, the best way of describing Riptide GP, is essentially to take Wipeout and mix it with Waverace. What you end up with is a fast paced, action packed jet skiing game, that is never short of great, challenging moments.

Turn off tilt control the moment you get this game - in my opinion the only way to play it is by traditional touch based steering on the right and left side of the screen.






In the words of the developer:
The premier console-qu…

YouBubbs

Today's app of the day is YouBubbs.


Ever been out and about with friends, and had someone drop an absolutely brilliant quote or one liner, or just say something so ridiculously absurd that it would be a crime not to capture the moment for the rest of time? If so, then give YouBubbs a try.
YouBubbs is all about capturing the spoken word, and putting it into neat little speech bubbles above custom designed avatars. The possibilities for this are endless? You can create your own cartoons, create personalized memes, create humorous cartoons to share on your social networks - the list goes on. At the end of the day, your creativity is the only limit to the sorts of uses for YouBubbs.
So, what do you have to do? It is simple. (1) - Install YouBubbs and (2) start listening to the conversations are you on a daily basis. I am certain for most people, there will be no shortage of inspiration!



In the words of the developer:

Words say it all...
Capture in-the-moment quotes that you, friends and oth…

App Empire

These days, there is pretty much an app for everything. In fact, there aren't many online services, popular websites, companies or brands that don't have at least some form of presence in online app stores. Even Droid App of the Day has an Official App!

So why are mobile apps so popular? The obvious reason, is that it helps promote your product or service to a wider audience, but secondly, because it can be quite profitable. Because of this, there are now more "appreneurs" than every trying to get a slice of the "pie" and get rich from the exploding app market.



A great example of this is Chad Mureta - an app store millionaire. Chad has created over 46 apps that have been downloaded more than 35 million times worldwide. So could his success be replicated? In short, the answer is Yes, and as far as Chad is concerned, success can come from simply following a system.


If you are interested in learning more about this system, a great new website called App Empire ha…

My Book Droid

Today's app of the day is My Book Droid.


If you read a lot of books, then no doubt you have experienced the difficulty of remembering whether you have read a book in the past, or where in a series you are up to. if you take it a step further and read multiple books at the same time, then often simply remembering what you have started and where you are up to can be challenging (particularly if you are reading across multiple electronic platforms - i.e. tablets, phones and e-readers that don't all sync). 



(Powered by LaunchBit)
If this sounds familiar, then My Book Droid is a great app for you. In short, it allows you to keep track of what you have read, what you are currently reading, and what you want to read in the future. Once installed, books can be easily added, and if they are located on the goodreads.com library, you will be able to see and read reviews. The app will also recommend books based on your previous reads. 
If you have the dedication to input all the books you hav…

Textgram

Today's app of the day is Textgram.

The best way to describe, is to take Instragram, but then instead of taking and uploading pictures using a variety of creative filters, Textgram allows you to create short and sharp notes on "post it" shaped squares, then upload and share them across a variety of networks / apps


Ironically, once a Textgram has been created, it can be shared on Instagram, but they can also be used for a variety of other purposes, such as blogs, MMS messages, emails, etc. Check out my first "textgram" (above) created using Textgram and then uploaded to Instagram where I added a border.

All in all, this isn't the sort of app that will be used every day, but it sure has its uses.








In the words of the developer:

Create beautiful graffitis and share them with your friends on Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp, etc.. or save them in your gallery.
Note: Pro version is available:

Logo Quiz

Today's first app of the day (for last Friday - I'm playing catch up) is Logo Quiz.

Logo Quiz is a great little game, which essentially involves being able to name a large selection of brand names and logos. Beyond that, there is little to it - but until you manage to get them all this game will keep you coming back for more!



In the words of the developer:
Guess the brands based on the logo's. The objective of the game is to guess all the brands belonging to the logos.
