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…

Spam Blocker

Today's app of the day is Spam Blocker.

If you receive a lot of SMS Spam, or want to block the receipt of certain SMS messages, then Spam Blocker is for you. With a variety of settings, you can easily set Spam Blocker to intelligently block spam messages, or you can manually enter numbers that you want to ensure you do not receive message from.

These features can extend to blocking calls, and with a great user interface, there really has never been an easier way to block spam. All in all, an excellent android app.

In the words of the developer:

* Resolved problem in selecting numbers to blacklist, whitelist and clearing
* Introduced help section, for any guidance required to use the app
* Introduced filtering of incoming calls/messages on the basis of starting of number, ending of number, a number containing specific digits, even regexes.
* For auto-detection of spams, introduced filtering based on ip-address
* Auto reply ignored call with predefined SMS
* New and improved UI
Spam Blocker prevents you from unwanted calls and sms from any sender. Turn the features on and enjoy your privacy.
And all this for FREE. That too with NO ADS. If you have any suggestion to filter call/sms, please feel free to contact developer. This app may be conflicted with Go SMS and other apps monitoring incoming sms.
Key Features:
* Blacklist sms sender by writing the number or choosing one of the previous sender from inbox.
* Blacklist caller by writing the number or choosing one of the previous callers from call log.
* Whitelist sms sender. Use this option when you need to receive sms from a sender with a non-numeric number such as "LM-044024" and delete all other spam senders. Also, you can use this option when you want to receive sms from all your contacts plus some other few known numbers.
* Ignore sms/call from blacklisted numbers, keep a separate log of it.
* Ignore all calls/sms from those not it contact list.
* Detect and delete spam automatically based on sender and content.
* Notification in status bar about new spams. Can be disabled from app settings.
* Option to move blocked sms to inbox, reply to it and call back it's sender.
* Option to call back ignored call or reply to it by sms.
* Simple User Interface and easy to use
**For entering number manually, please bear in mind that you enter number to be blacklisted/whitelisted in international format. For Example: 09968404118 is to be written as +919968404118 This can be taken care by inputting the number by: entering the country code followed by 10 digit phone number OR just selecting number from call-log or inbox.**

* Log deleted sms/ignored calls to review later
* Turn on notify me and log blocked calls/deleted sms to keep track of everything
* Clear SPAM EVERYDAY using Clear All
* After Phone restart - Launch ONCE
* If you are using other SMS related app (like Go SMS), make sure that this app is installed/updated first. Only the first sms app to install can block sms.

Disclaimer: Developer is in no way responsible for any unwanted important deleted sms/ ignored call in any way.
Your feedback is highly appreciated and for any desired improvements or feedback feel free to mail the developer at

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 …
