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…

Color and Learn: Sea Animals

Today's app of the day is Color and Learn: Sea Animals

Color and Learn: Sea Animals is a great educational application for children that will both keep them entertained, but also teach them about colors, whilst honing their creativity and fine motor skills.

To color in the pictures, children do not need to have finger perfect precision - all they need to do it rib their fingers across the screen and the application will do the hard task of keeping within the lines. Users have the freedom of choosing colors for the image, and then best of all, animating the character. I'd imagine children would love seeing their own painted creations come to life and swim across the screen.

Color and Learn is simple to use, with an easy interface and bright vivid colors. The sounds are also great, and will no doubt appeal to younger children. Pictures can also be saved, for easy sharing with friends, or for setting as wallpapers, etc.

There are plenty of pictures to choose from, meaning that even the most ambitious 'painter' should keep occupied by this app. With the ability to operate on both phones and tablets, this is a recommended install for anyone with young children.


In the words of the developer:

Oceans cover two thirds of our planet and they are teeming with sea animals. From fish to sharks and whales, to crabs and octopuses to microscopic algae, marine wildlife is highly diverse and contains the highest amount of life on Earth.

This educational sea animals game teaches children not only about primary colors and how they blend to create new colors, but they also develop fine motor skills and precision while enjoying animated coloring book pages containing these magnificent sea creatures! Kids of all ages will have so much fun with this coloring book game. Functions:
* Bring creatures to life with the animation feature, and watch them swim across the screen.
* Drawing with fingers/finger-painting.
* Simple coloring.
* Saving coloring sheets.
* Send to function will allow you to share colored images.
* Coloring book runs on phones and tablets.

Contents: ocean animals coloring pages for kids, sea animals activities, marine animals coloring pages, starfish, dolphins, sea turtles, puffer fish, crabs, and other sea life coloring pages.

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 …

UNCHARTED: Fortune Hunter - continue Drake's adventure on your phone!

It's been a while now since Uncharted 4 was released though to date it is still one of the best games on the PS4. At the time of its release, a lot of people might not have noticed that an Android entry into the Uncharted series was also released. Now I'm late to the party on this one but I think it's well worth checking out - better late than never!

The game is in the style of the 'Go' games that are really popular, such as Hitman Go and Lara Croft Go. The gameplay sees you move from square to square on a map trying to unlock a series of objectives or reach a destination. It's a polished game with great sound, graphics and gameplay. Strongly recommended!
