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.

Jump Shot

Today's app of the day is Jump Shot.


Jump Shot is a great new game by developers EchoEight Games that takes the classic tilt / jumping style of gameplay made famous by Doodle Jump, adds a few twists and then puts it all back together as an excellent Android app.
The basic gameplay should be well known to anyone who has played a share of mobile games, and is based primarily on tilting the device to make your character move left and right across the screen. Movement upwards is aided by platforms, which players must hit in order to continue the climb upwards. Progress is hindered by a number of enemies, which can be killer by tapping on the screen to launch projectiles in their general direction.
 What separates Jump Shot from the competition is its three innovative gameplay modes, which includes 'Campaign', 'Freeplay' and 'Survival.' Freeplay is as expected, in which the objective is to work upwards through an endless progression of platforms and enemies, but it is in Campaign and Survival that the game throws in a few twists to break it from the mould of similar titles.
In particular, Campaign mode sees the player progress through 6 different climbing levels, and interesting, 6 drop down levels which I found to be a good twist on the standard jumping formula. The campaign mode also includes boss battles which involve movement along a flat platform as incoming enemies try to kill you. Survival is another unique twist on the formula, in which players must stand their ground against incoming hordes of enemies that increase in numbers and difficulty the longer you stay alive.
The sound and graphics are quirky and crisp, with the entire game well presented. All in all, if you are looking for a new game to load onto your Android device, check out Jump Shot.

In the words of the developer:

Jump Shot is the hottest platform game on the market! Help your space man to destroy hoards of enemies across hours of addicting climbup, falldown, survival and boss levels while collecting drops from the dead to help you on your journey! Jump Shot features 3 gripping game modes, Campaign, Freeplay, and Survival:

Campaign - Campaign mode features 3 campaigns each loaded with 6 climbup levels, 6 falldown levels, and 1 epic boss battle! Freeplay - For those interested in an endless adventure, Freeplay mode allows you to jump on an infinite level in either climbup or falldown with toggleable enemies. How high of a score can you get? Survival - Stand your ground and fight waves of enemies in Survival mode! Each wave adds new and more difficult enemies. How many waves can you beat? As of version 1.1 you can now configure your sensitivity in the options screen!A Premium Version that removes ads is also available.

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…
