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…

Word Warfare Free

Today's app of the day is Word Warfare Free.

Word Warfare is a new take on study, 'gamifying' the process of studying for vocabulary exams such as the SAT or GRE. There are two primary game modes (survival and classic), each of which can be played in two different ways:

- Synonym Farmer (finding words that match the meaning of the word at the bottom)
- Synonym Protector (grouping words that are synonymous with the word at the bottom)

Featuring text to voice capability, and a great search function, you might as well give Word Warfare a try.




In the words of the developer:

Tired of studying vocabulary for tests like the SAT and GRE the old fashioned way? Fear no more! With Word Warfare, you can learn vocabulary while playing games and enjoying yourself! These word games are designed to help you learn vocabulary in the fastest, most efficient ways possible. 

Choose from two game modes: survival and classic. In survival mode, you have a certain number of lives; categorize words correctly to avoid losing them. In classic mode, you must race against the clock to build up a large score. Of these two modes, you can choose from two games:

- Synonym Farmer:
Group words that are synonymous to the two words at the bottom. Easy, fun way to quickly build up a large word-base.
- Synonym Protector (Available only in the full version):
Guide the rocket with your finger to destroy all the words that are synonymous to the word at the bottom of the screen.
The higher your accuracy, the more likely you are to earn streak points, which can send your score to stratospheric heights.
If you prefer to study vocabulary the long way, this app has a built in vocabulary list with over 500 words and their definitions. This list also has advanced search functionality, along with text-to-speech capabilities.
This app is supported via search. Please note that the following will be added to your device once you download the app – Search icon, bookmark link and browser homepage. You can delete/replace these search points easily. This is a way to make money from this app and giving it to you for free. Thank you for your understanding.

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 …
