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!

Go Launcher HD

Today's app of the day is Go Launcher HD.

A number of months ago, I recommended Go Launcer Ex as my app of the day. Since then, the team at Go Launcher have been busy not only releasing constant updates for Go Launcher Ex (in my opinion, the best launcher for android mobiles), but have also been busy putting together Go Launcher HD for Android tablets.

After a few updates, Go Launcher HD is now at a point where it has replaced the stock ICS experience on my Asus Transformer Prime. Why? After using Go Launcher Ex on my phone, I got so used to resizing any and all widgets, that it began to feel restricting when not all widgets could be resized on my tablet. In addition, ICS limited me to 5 home screens, which never seemed quite enough. With Go Launcher HD, both these issues are a thing of the past - and in addition, it just "feels" like the entire experience is smoother and snappier (not that it ever really lagged on my TFP).

In addition to the above features, there are a few others that really make Go Launcher HD worth a try. For example, if you want it, each home screen can now feature a "dock" down the bottom that remains the same regardless of the screen. I find this really useful for keeping all my frequently used apps only a click away. Also, adding widgets, icons and shortcuts to your home screens in now even easier than on ICS, with a miniaturised view of the home screens quickly view-able, allowing the widgets and icons of your choosing to be easily thrown around the screen.

Finally, the standard features I now find necessary from Go Launcher Ex return, such as the ability to easily delete apps from the menu, simply by long pressing, and the ability to re-jig the number of icons that you have across the screen (i.e. 9 icons of width instead of 8). All in all, if you have a tablet, Go launcher HD is well worth a try.

In the words of the developer:

GO Launcher HD is the exclusive tablet version of GO Launcher EX on Android platform. It brings you with the fascinating interface, practical utilities, as well as extremely personalized and smooth operating experience.

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…
