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…

Angry Birds Star Wars

Today's app of the day is Angry Birds Star Wars


You would struggle to find a person on earth who has not heard of Angry Birds, and likewise, you would probably find it even more difficult to find someone who had not heard of StarWars. Arguably, the most iconic mobile game ever, and the most iconic film franchise of all time. Why not combine them to create the greatest mobile game based on a film franchise... possible ever?

That is exactly what Rovi has accomplished in it's latest iteration of the Angry Birds franchise - Angry Birds Star Wars. Although the core game mechanics remain unchanged from the very first iteration, the Star Wars release includes a mash up of some of the best elements from previous entries, notably the space levels from Angry Birds Space. These levels are a great addition to the standard Angry Birds gameplay and really mix up the level structure.

The game is probably the best looking Angry Birds to date, with the level of detail in the environments far surpassing anything from previous entries. The sound and general smoothness of the game are also top notch, and there is enough of the iconic Star Wars elements (cue the prolonged scrolling story) to keep fans happy. As you progress through famous Star Wars landscapes, you will feel right at home shooting your birds at pigs, but you will undoubtedly enjoy some of the finer touches Rovio have implemented to really do the Star Wars theme justice, such as the use of Light sabres, blasters and even Jedi Powers to take down the evil pigs!

With 80 levels, and arguably more on the way, it is hard to go past Angry Birds Star Wars. In short, download it now!






In the words of the developer:

May the birds be with you!

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 …
