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…

Darts Master

Guest Blogger - Yarna Wong

Today's app of the day is Darts Master.

From the screenshots below and the game name above, you can obviously know it is a shooting game. If you are a fan of TPS, then you should not miss Darts Master. This is a wonderful Android game with one single goal – to hit the bull's-eye.

Darts Master has colorful adequate graphics and various gaming scenes, which set perfectly for an environment of a pub where players can relax themselves completely. The sounds effects are just like that of a pub which is filled with people and the music is so lively and relaxing.

The game has 4 modes for players to start with – Easy, Avoidance, Multi-ring, and Bull’s-eye Expert. There are changeable winds in each mode, so you need a strong sense of balance to guide the darts to hit the bull’s-eyes. And when the arrow is flying, you should try your best to avoid the obstacles on its way and collect all the coins. Practice makes perfect!

In general, Darts Master is a challenging, addictive shooting game. It is worth having a try.

In the words of the developer:

Do you like playing Shooting Games but get tired of the unchangeable boring scene?
Do you want to be the BEST shooter and PK with other players rather than only play games with yourself?
Do you want to be a shooter master?
Do you want to experience flying?
You can get all of these as long as you play Darts Master!
There are 4 completely different modes for you!
"In this super-fast 3rd person darts game you will need to use all your skills to avoid obstacles and collect all the coins before you make a bullseye!" -
"It is a fun game where it takes a steady hand to get a high score. In the game an arrow is shot and you need to guide it to the target. As you guide the arrow, you want to collect the coins in your path and then when you get to the target, try to hit the bullseye. Practice makes perfect!"—
Are you ready to challenge YOURSELF now?
Game Features—Various Game Modes:
Easy mode allows you to collect the gold readily in the sky.
Avoidance Mode asks you to prevent from hitting the shields in the battle-field and hit the target.
Multi-ring Mode allows you to cross the ring obstacles consecutively in the Chinese Great Wall and hit the target finally.
The most challengeable mode is "Bullseye Expert" mode, you need to control the arrow's orientation accurately in the virtual dark corridor in order to hit the bullseye.
Additional wonderful modes are coming soon…
Please just wait for it!

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!
