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…

Go Make it Rain

Today's app of the day is Go Make it Rain.

The variety of apps available on Google Play always manages to astound me, and just when I think I may have seen the kookiest app out there, designed to fill the most obscure niche in existence, another app pops it's head from the charts for review. Welcome - Go Make it Rain!

A) Have you ever wanted to experience the thrill of being basked in crisp dollar bills, fleeting and falling in spins and twirls from the sky? B) Have you ever wished you could capture and share this moment for all the world too see? C) Have you never had the hard currency or a camera with a fast enough shutter-speed to achieve A and B above? If yes then - D) would you be satisfied for this all to be achieved from your Android phone with virtual, 3D rendered currency? If yes, then E) - Download Go Make it Rain.. NOW!

As niche as an app this may be, the actual build design is fantastic, with great menus, a clean interface, plenty of unlock-able currency's, brilliant 3D graphics and physics (as the notes fall), satisfying physics and sensitive touch controls. It pretty much ticks all the boxes in terms of design - and it does exactly what is states on the packet, if not more!

All in all, this is one of the strangest apps I've ever experienced, but for some reason, it is staying on my phone. After all, you never really know when you may need to - Go Make it Rain! Give it a try - what do you have to lose?

In the words of the developer:

Go. Make. It. Rain.

It’s that simple. Turn up some Fat Joe, blast the Rack City, and Make those bills Rain over your friends and unsuspecting people around you.

- Go Make It Rain on your friends, enemies, parents, and dare we say teachers, snap an in-app photo, and share it to Facebook or Instagram right from the app.
- The more you share, the more you win. Start with US cheddar, skrilla, moula, dolla dolla bills (Oh, we mean Dollars) and unlock additional currencies like Japan’s Zen Yen or the Mother Land’s Russian Ruble.
- Feel like you are a true baller, like you shouldn't be Raining anything but the Benjamins, baby? Become a High Roller and unlock ALL currencies, get rid of ads, and Go Make It Rain with the highest bill denominations every currency has to offer. Did we mention Raining nothing but Benjamins? Oh yeah, we did.

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 …
