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!

loc.ae

Today's app of the day is loc.ae

One of the greatest things about mobile devices, and the ever growing library of mobile games, is that it is encouraging new types of innovation as to how games are actually played, and even, what is meant by the phrase 'game'. Examples such as Run! Zombie Run, have meant that even undertaking everyday tasks (such as going for a jog), are now ‘gamified’. Continuing this trend, and trying to take it to the next level is loc.ae, a "massively multiplayer, location aware arcade game".

Scratching your head? In short, think of loc.ae as Bomberman, but instead of controlling a tiny arcade figure on the screen, you are the arcade figure. Still confused? Put simply, the object of loc.ae is to locate other logged in players and drop bombs near them. If they are hit by the explosion, you gain credits and they lose credits. Credits earned can then be used to buy upgrades and in game items.

Loc.ae is still in Beta and there aren't a huge amount of players currently active, but I strongly urge everyone to get behind this game and give it a try. With enough players I think this could really take off and be a great way to 'game' whilst out and about. It would effectively be like playing 'tag' but with complete strangers, and I think that could be pretty cool.

All in all, an innovative, excellent android app. Download now and get amongst it!





In the words of the developer:

loc.ae is a real time, massively multiplayer, location aware arcade game.

Join the game, invite your friends and start playing! You can join the game using your Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus account, or you can also register your own account in loc.ae. Social login is recommended since it will allow you to earn additional credits by inviting your friends.Once you are in, take a look at the map and locate nearby players. The map view (2D) will show the current location of all the players in the game. The augmented reality view (3D) will help you find, track and follow fellow players.Locate unsuspected players, drop a bomb and run away! Exploding a bomb gives credits to the player dropping the bomb and subtracts credits from the players close to the bomb at the time of the explosion. The objective of the game is to earn as many credits as possible by dropping bombs close to other players. Credits are exchangeable for items in the game.If you happen to run out of credits you can either purchase more in the in-game store or invite your friends to the game and receive a bonus for each friend you invite and also an additional bonus for each friend that actually joins loc.ae. This option is only available only for players joining the game through Facebook and Twitter.loc.ae is still in beta. Stay tuned for updates and bugfixes and please share your opinions and give us feedback. You can follow us in Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/locaeapp) and Twitter (http://twitter.com/locaeapp).

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…
