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!

Bomb Block

Today's app of the day is Bomb Block.

There are no shortage on puzzle games in the Google Play store, but many recently have been variations on the 'three gems' style game popularized by Candy Crush and Bejeweled. It is therefore refreshing to see a new take on the 'three in a row' puzzle genre, in the form of Bomb Block.

The game-play is surprisingly simple to grasp, but difficult to master, which will appeal to those who like puzzle games. The screen consists of three columns of different colored blocks. The two outer columns can be moved up and down by the player, whilst the middle column constantly moved downwards at a regular pace.

Players have to match all three blocks in a row with the same color and tap the middle block .This causes the entire row to disappear. As someone has commented below - it is like Tetris combined with a Rubik's cube!As you progress through the levels, the middle row can become affected by various power-ups. Ice, lightning and bombs …

Ringpost

Today's app of the day is Ringpost.


Thanks to the boom of smart phone technology over the last decade -  posting to social networks has become easier than ever. Unfortunately, listing almost all social network applications is dependent on having a data connection. This is where things can often become problematic, with there still being plenty of places without good data reception all around the world.
This is where Ringpost steps in, utilizing your phones 'mobile' reception, instead of 'data' connection to allow you to post to social networks. In short, you can post when you are offline, in places where this was previously not possible. Best of all it is 100% free, not costing you in calls or data, even when you are roaming overseas.
You can post to a wide range of networks, and can post both pre-defined messages and images, or even create your own message and use your own photos. The system works by making an unanswered call to the Ringpost database. The manner of t…

Minox

Today's app of the day is Minox.


A lot has changed in the landscape of mobile phone gaming over previous years.Gone are the days when mobile games were solely to fill a few minutes of free time on public transport, or when waiting in queues. Instead, mobile games have stepped up and directly challenge fully fledged portable gaming systems such as the PS Vita or Nintendo 3DS, both in sales and game quality. Games like Minox represent this dramatic shift, with deep game-play that rivals some of the AAA releases by publisher powerhouses such as Nintendo. Developers, Uber Gamers have released a mobile game with the depth of a console RPG, all wrapped up in an accessible package for all sorts of gamers. So what is it all about?

The concept is simple. Players assume the role of a trainer who have find themselves on Minox Island. Once on the island they have to explore and find animals (also called Minox) to train, then fight against the pets of other trainers. If battles is not enough to …

Stylish Quick Call Widget

Today's app of the day is Stylish Quick Call Widget.

In my opinion, the one thing that sets Android smartphones apart from the competition is their customisable home-screens, and the practically limitless number of widgets that can be added to personalise your device. Stylish Quick Call Widget is yet another option for this style of personalisation, allowing you to easily have access to your most frequent contacts closer than ever before.

In short, Stylish Quick Call Widget allows you to create widgets out of your most frequent contacts. Once created, a tap on this widget can initiate a variety of actions for that contact, being a call, a SMS, the opening of a contact card or the opening of the contact details (the latter two options available in the paid version). This is fantastic if you have contacts who you need to get in touch with regularly and don't want to waste time sorting through call logs or phone books. I would be surprised if there was a person on earth who didn…

Ultimate Car Dock

Today's app of the day is Ultimate Car Dock.



Using a mobile device whilst driving is never an easy take, and in many instances, is now illegal. A change in the law however, doesn't necessarily co-relate to a change in the need to use mobile devices whilst driving, with this problem become more prevalent as our phones become smarter. Our mobiles are now our stereos, maps and communication hubs, meaning that often whilst driving, they are needed more than ever. Their interfaces however are not generally intuitive for ease of use whilst driving, which is where Ultimate Car Dock steps in.

Ultimate Car Dock is intended to solve this problem, through the inclusion of voice navigation. Google Now and Siri have demonstrated that phones can function quite effective through voice control - and Ultimate Car Dock takes that core capability but focuses it around achieving driving related tasks. With Ultimate Car Dock you can completely remove the need to touch, or even look at your device wh…

Android Game Review: Car Parking Rush

Guest Post by Yarno Yong
Today's app of the day is Car Parking Rush.

Car Parking Rush is a casual game created by Zinga Games and themed by car parking. I think it is the most classic car parking game I have ever played. And I have fallen for it as soon as I started playing it.
There are more than 50 common parking situations you may come across in your real life in this game, so you will never get bored with it. If you are not good at driving, just don’t worry about that, because this game will teach you how to drive as well. And don’t worry if you haven’t passed your driving test in real life, either, because you will pass the test here quite simply.
Thanks to the great graphics of this game, Car Parking Rush has got the most realistic driving experience. And also it is indeed that it has the most beautiful cars in many numbers and in different type as well as kinds. Trust me on that!
About the shortcomings of this game, I just want to ask when the developers will realize that player…
