Netflix and Android - chromecast, downloading, profiles - close to perfection!

Netflix and Android have always had a great relationship, but over recent years the app has really gone from strength to strength. The interface is fantastic and the feature set continues to grow in meaningful ways, making it one of my must-have apps.
The first example that comes to mind is obviously Chromecast support. Now this isn’t a Netflix exclusive option, and it is supported well in many media apps, but Netflix and Chromecast work so seamlessly well together that I struggle to think about how I survived before the pairing existed!
Next is the newly integrated ‘Download’ option, which allows users to download content and watch it on the go without a data connection.  Honestly, Netflix kicked it out of the park with this one – it could not be easier to use, it includes all the right settings (save to SD, definition quality control, etc) – and best of all it is all within the existing price brackets. I almost feel they could have charged extra for this service alone – but am ext…


Today's app of the day is Numb3rs.

Numb3rs is a unique puzzle game, involving the turn based selection of numbers off a playing grid, in a challenge to generate the highest score. Each turn a player selects a number in either a vertical or horizontal row. That number is added to the players score.

After the player chooses a number, the 'axis' of the row (vertical or horizontal) switches, and the next player chooses a number. That is then added to their score. The game progresses until there are no numbers left and the player with the highest score wins.

On the first few play through, I admit that I was not convinced of the game-play mechanic behind Numb3rs, but after about 3 rounds, I began to see the strategy required, and the computer difficulty increased to a point where I had to start planning my moves in a more intelligent. Don't be mistaken, what at first seems like a rather arbitrary and skill-less game quickly turns into the complete opposite!

Once you have the basic game-play strategy figured out, there are plenty of modes to explore, include a campaign mode (which in itself includes 3 sub modes), a championship mode where you compete to move up an online leaderboard, and a simple single player mode where you can hone your skills.

All in all, Numb3rs is an excellent game, and a great puzzler for the Android platform. Well worth checking out!

In the words of the developer:

Dive into the magical world of Numb3rs!
Numb3rs is an intelligent fun game that takes you to the magical world of numbers. The game has a turn-based tactical game-play, where each move you make affects the way your opponent will play, just like in chess.

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!

Hearthstone - better late than never - the best android card game!

I'll cut to it - Hearthstone is one of the best games you can get for your Android device - in fact, I am sure that plenty of people would argue it is one of the best games you can get at all - even on a PC! With that in mind, there's no reason not to jump in now and start experiencing this great offering from Blizzard. 
The gameplay is turn based card strategy, think Magic the Gathering, but fare more simple. Every turn the number of points you have to spend on cards increases, so it means that games start quite evenly handed but can escalate quickly, especially when more experienced players know how to string together the abilities of their cards.
The objective is to eliminate the health of your opponent - and once you succeed the victory is entirely satisfying, with some truly fantastic sounds and effects that drive home the sense of achievement. This is of course a free to play game, and it is possible to spend real world money in the store but it is not required to have …
