FaceApp - despite the controversy there's a reason it is popular!

FaceApp is high in the ranks of then Google Play store at the moment, and despite the controversies of white-washing, there's a reason. In short, it's really fun, simple to use and an all round well-designed app that has some great filters and effects.
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.
Check it out today, it's one of those apps well worth downloading and spending a few minutes with!

Jetpack Jinx

Today's app of the day is Jetpack Jinx

Jetpack Jinx is a fantastic android game that takes the concept of the 'endless jumper' popularised by Doodle Jump and improves wherever possible. In Jetpack Jinx, players take on the task of getting Jetpack Jinx back into space, by launching him forever upwards through crystals/stars, power-ups and an outrageous array of obstacles and monsters. 

Play starts by being launched out of what looks like a venus fly trap, insider a cave. Instead of having to jump off platforms to continue the journey into space, Jinx will continue flying so long as you tilt the device and cause him to ride over what appear to be gems / stars / crystals. These essentially keep his Jetpack burning.

The tilt controls are fantastic with just the right degree of sensitivity, and I really like the way that you can miss a few gems and still continue the upwards journey. It ads a far greater sense of fun then is often experienced in these forms of games. Whilst moving, Jinx can ride over power-ups and points boosters, which are a great way to get into space quicker! Also, once you run out of juice, you normally have a few seconds of backwards free fall to hit another gem or bounce off the back of an obstacle. When this sort of move is pulled off it is very rewarding - essentially feels like a second chance!

All the way from the bottom of the cave into the depths of space, Jetpack Jinx is a very rewarding game, with quirky graphics, excellent sound and simple controls making it perfect for mobile gaming. The developers have also nailed the free-to-play ratio, with purchased power-ups never forced on the player. In fact, you could quite happily play this game for days and never feel pressured or required to fork out real dollars.

At the end of the day, this is a fantastic, free Android game, well worth downloading and giving a try. I know I will be keeping it installed on my device!

In the words of the developer:

FLY as high as you can!
DODGE enemies and obstacles!
SCORE gems and power ups!

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…
