Microsoft is actually a great Android developer - 'To-Do' is another reason why!

It may seem suprising to some, but Microsoft is actually a fantastic Android developer. In fact, I'd go as far to saythat their app offerings for Android are far superior to than their offerings for the Windows App store. For starters the full suite of Microsoft Office apps are great, as is one drive and one note, and the Arrow App Launcher is actually one of the best custom android skins available (seriously - check it out!).

To round this out, over the last few days Microsoft has released 'To-Do' which as you've guessed it - is a to-do list. It really could not be simpler - the app allows the creation of lists and then as part of each list allows tasks and items to be added.

The design is simple and clean, and a nice move away from the boxy interface design that still dominates some of the earlier Windows apps for android. It's fast, lightweight, cloud based (of course) and has a widget - so there is not much more you could ask for!

Of course there is lots of co…

RingTime Lite

Today's app of the day is RingTime Lite

Have you ever arrived at work, gone to a meeting and had your phone start ringing obnoxiously? Have you ever been just about to doze off to sleep, only to be awoken by a friend, or been woken at 3am by someone who has had a few too many drinks? Have you been at the shops getting groceries after work, only to miss a call from your husband / wife, and have to rush back once you get home to collect the things you missed?

If any of these scenarios sound at all familiar, then RingTime should be an essential install for your Android device. In short, RingTime allows you to schedule the functionality of your mobile ring. When you are at work, you can have it set to vibrate, at night you can set it to silent, and during home time you can set it to be blazingly loud so there is no chance you will miss a call.

This functionaly is great, but what really sets RingTime apart from the competition is the ability to schedule the control of other functions. A classic example is the ability to control Bluetooth. One of my pet hates is getting in the car then having to manually turn on Bluetooth functionality to utilise my hands-free system. With RingTime you can simply program in the usual times you drive to and from work, and your Bluetooth will automatically turn on and switch off as you have requested. This really saves a lot of time.

The same goes for wi-fi. With RingTime you can set your wi-fi to automatically activate at certain times, meaning that once you are home you will connect automatically to your local network instead of wasting data usage of the ordinary cellular networks.

Now, the developer is the first to admit that these functions do not re-invent the wheel, but what does set RingTime apart is just how simple and seamless the set-up and configuration is. In short, this is a slick app, with a great interface and should be a breeze for just about anyone to use.

All in all, RingTime is an excellent Android app, well worthy of your download.


 In the words of the devloper:

*** NEW*** A free ringer scheduler that saves you time and your battery.
What is RingTime?
RingTime is the most enhanced and feature rich ringer scheduler out on the market.
What is a ringer scheduler?
Ringer schedulers allow you to program the ringer on your phone to be at a specific volume at a certain time. Ringer schedulers are not alarms because it doesn't alert you at a certain time and ringer schedulers are not ringtones.
What are some things I can do with RingTime?
You can schedule it to go silent during work hours M-F from 9-5, to know when you are home based on your GPS location and turn wifi on, to vibrate only at the movies, to send unknown callers straight to voicemail, and more… see full list of features. app doesn’t seem unique, what makes it different?

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 …
