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…


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 keep you occupied, Minox features over 70 NPC quests to embark on, which will see players work their way through 100 levels of experience.

This might sound familiar for anyone who has played Pokemon before, but the developer has plans in store to set it apart from the competition, being online player vs player battles. With an expected launch of the battle arena in a few months, there has never been a better time to get in and start training some pets up to strength. In addition to PVP, Minox differs from the competition in that it utilises a 2D side scrolling mode of exploration instead of the top down isometric view favored by some similar games. This works fantastically, with smooth controls, addictive yet simple game-play and crisp graphics and that really pop off the screen.

Minox is entirely free, with the developer including some in-game items for cash purchases. These are not required to complete the game, and unlike some similar experiences, are not forced upon gamers. With availability on both iOS and Android, fantastic deep gameplay and promises for additional features, big things should be expected of Minox!

So what are you waiting for? Get to the island and start training! If the following reviews are anything to go by, Minox won't be quiet for long!

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 …
