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!


Today's app of the day is Flipboard.

This recommendation is so new, Flipboard is yet to even make it onto Android Play. However, that hasn't stopped some of the guys over at XDA forums from pulling the .apk from a Samsung Galaxy III (for which Flipboard was meant to be an exclusive). With the .apk in hand, I have installed Flipboard for android on both my Asus Prime (though it is really only optimised for mobiles) and my HTC Desire HD. On both phones, the app worked perfectly, so I strongly suggest that if you are keen for a great news reader, to jump on board.

As some background, up until recently Flipboard has been an iOS exclusive app. In all honesty, it is probably the only app iOS that gives me even a slight bit of Apple envy. Luckily, those days are well and truly over, with Flipboard now unofficially available on all android devices. I can only assume it won'e be long before a Android Play release (and hopefully a tablet version) is available.

In short, Flipboard is roughly equivalent to apps such as Google Currents or Feedly. One of the features that truly sets it apart is its level of integration with other social networks. In a matter of minutes I had managed to connect Flipboard to my Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Flickr, Instagram and most importantly, Google Reader.

Once set up, it is as simple as 'flipping' your finger up and down the screen to browse through subject matters and feeds. After a brief play, I would say that it is almost up there with Feedly in terms of being my mobile news reader of choice.

All in all, Flipboard for Android is a fantastic app, and once it enters Android Play, I am sure it will quickly make its way into the most downloaded list. In the meantime, grab yourself this pre-release version. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

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…
