Today's app of the day is Tabr

Tabr is a great app for android tablets or mobiles, allowing you to easily see important information on the home screen of your device by being able to browse through a series of convenient "tabs" on a widget. Tabs currently include social networks (facebook and twitter), agenda, bookmarks and contacts.

There are plenty of customisation options, so you should be able to get Tabr to look and feel exactly how you want. Give it a go.

In the words of the developer:

Tabbed scrolling widget for Android tablets
Tabr is an innovative tabbed scrolling homescreen widget for any device running Honeycomb or Icecream Sandwich!
With Tabr you only need one widget to show data from many applications! One widget to rule them all!
Add the widget, then add some modules and enjoy the extra space on your homescreen while you quickly switch between modules using the tabs at the top of the widget!
Modules can also be created for any application that has a data API, if you are a developer who would like to add Tabr support visit the website.
This applications comes with a Bookmark module and a Contact modules build in. That is why it needs phone/history permissions!
You can get more modules from the market (search "Agenda for Tabr" and "Social for Tabr")!
Change the layout of any module to suit your fancy, want your bookmarks in a grid view? Do it! Like to see your contacts in a stack view? Feasible and suggested!
Perhaps you don't like the icons I've chosen for the modules? That is A-OK because you can customize them with any image or using the ADW icon packs!
Some features of this application will become paid only in a few weeks, enjoy them for free for a short time during the open beta!
Four modules are currently maintained by me and are currently available:
* Contacts (built in to the main application)
* Bookmarks (built in to the main application)
* Agenda for Tabr (available on the market)
* Social for Tabr (available on the market)
Here is another neat feature, there is only 1 widget which means no more clutter in your widget selection screen. Use the Honeycomb resize feature to make the widget as large as you like.
Upgrade to the full version for a limited time pre-release price, just tap upgrade in the widget settings!
In-app billing is part of the Android market, you will be able to restore your licence on new devices or after a factory reset if you use the same market account!
Contact the developer if you would like to create skins or modules!

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…
