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!

Dice with Buddies

Today's app of the day is Dice with Buddies.

Dice with Buddies is a game heavily based on the success of Zyngas creations (and acquisitions) such as Words with Friends, Scramble with Friends, Hanging with Friends and Draw Something. In fact, the layout, look and feel of this game is so similar that you could easily be mistaken for thinking this was a Zynga game. If it takes off, I do not think it will be long before Zynga will come knocking with their acquisition account open.

In either case, the app is based on the classic dice game of Yahtzee. For anyone who hasn't played Yahtzee before, it essentially involves rolling a set of 5 dice three times, holding back dice each role in an attempt to get a variety of "poker like" hands, such as straights, "of a kinds", full houses, etc. This version of the game is turn based (as is the actual real game), meaning that after each set of three rolls it is time to close the app and wait for your opponent to finish.

The implementation of this is excellent. I have experienced no bugs, the interface is quick (I’d say better than most of Zyngas offerings), and the game play is surprisingly enjoyable, considering the biggest thrill it replicates is the role of a dice. Once more people get on board, I can see this being a constant addition to the suite of multiplayer competitive games on my device!

Well worth the download (it is free after all), so check it 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…
