Car Dashroid (Car Dashboard)

Today's app of the day is Car Dashroid (Car Dashboard).

These days, most people use their phones for all manner of purposes, including as a GPS when commuting. Although it is great to have this functionality, most phones can be difficult to navigate and use whilst driving safely.

Of course, voice control has gone some way to solve this problem, but at the end of the day nothing is faster than simply typing or tapping what you want to achieve. To solve this problem, developer Nezdroid Apps has released Car Dashroid.

 Put your phone in a dock (if you have one available), or just perch it in a convenient place and Car Dashroid will quickly convert your phone into the most feature packed GPS unit available. If you look at the scree shots below you will see what I mean – with large icons, easy to touch dialers, quick access to your favourite apps and Music collections, the weather, etc – all the most common functions you use on your device whilst driving will be easily ‘in reach.  

With the ability to customise certain screens, a speedometer, shortcut slots to 16 apps and much more – there is no reason not to download Car Dashroid. All in all, an excellent app.

In the words of the developer:

Car Dashdroid has all the features you need to make your drive even easier. You can use Smart Dial to quickly find and call your contacts, can search and view contact information, and can browse through groups with ease.
and groups in a fancy way, you can view contact info Search contacts and add Shortcuts of apps. You can set the Music App and Navigation App for easy launch. The Best Car Dashboard for you car out there.

With 16 slots on the dashboard, you can access up to 16 of your favorite apps with just a touch.
On the main screen, you'll find four Quick Access shortcuts, which you can customize to open your preferred music and navigation apps. You can enable a speedometer to view your GPS-indicated speed, and can keep an eye on the weather outside (Yahoo! Weather).

You can even enable Car Dashdroid to launch automatically when you dock it with a supported car accessory! Only some accessories are supported right now, but I'm working to grow the list. if you have any doubt,let me know before leave bad review to fix the problem.

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…
