Super Moon Defender

Today's android app of the day is Super Moon Defender.



Super Moon Defender is a classic arcade action game for your Android mobile devices that will no doubt keep almost any gamer occupied for hours. The game-play takes the classic 1980's Atari Game, Missile Command, and gives it a modern twist, featuring fantastic new graphics, crisp sounds, online leader-boards and up-gradable weaponry.

The result is an addicting android game that you won't be able to put down. Game-play is simply. Players are presented with six moon bases / turrets to protect. In a series of waves. In a series of waves asteroids and aliens bombard the player's bases, which need to be defended by the player tapping the screen and destroying the incoming attacks.

The challenge is the ever-moving nature of the attacks, meaning that weapons always need to be launched slightly ahead of target. This makes a direct hit ever more satisfying, especially when combines with the excellent explosion and impact soun…

Day Journal-Personal Diary App

Today's app of the day is Day Journal-Personal Diary App.


There are plenty of great ways to record thoughts and memories on your Android device, but most of these apps are custom made for short snippets of information or lists - shopping lists, to do lists, etc. Day Journal-Personal Diary App breaks from this mold and represents a fully featured, comprehensive application custom made for replacing the your leather bound journal or diary.
Not only does Day Journal-Personal Diary App tick this box, but it does so as one of the best designed and looking apps I have seen in quite some time. In short, the interface is slick. Upon opening the application, users are presented with a screen featuring two prominent buttons - one for starting a new journal entry and one for browsing old entries. There is also a list of basic settings and other features only a click away from this home screen.
Starting a new entry is as simple as clicking the big '+' button and start typing. One of the …

Tap

Today's app of the day is Day.

Tap is a great event and task management application for Android mobile devices. It allows users to easily create events, invites and tasks, then share them with friends as easily as sending a SMS. Users who don't have Tap already installed on their device will be notified by email instead, with the event  included as an attachment that can be read by almost all calendar applications. This makes Tap great for all Android users, regardless if whether your friends are tech-savvy or working on another mobile platform!

The look and feel of tap is excellent, consistent with the latest Google design guidelines. In fact, the minimalist interface of tiles and bold colors makes this application feel like it has popped straight out of Google HQ! Using the app is equally as satisfying, with the creation of events, tasks and invites about as straightforward as is possible!

It is simple to keep track of events and export them to your default calendar application…

3R Bible Quiz

Today's app of the day is 3R Bible Quiz.

Everyone likes a good quiz, and what a better subject matter than the most published book on earth - the Bible. 3R Bible Quiz is the app to get if you are interested in learning more about the Bible, or testing your own skills and knowledge.

The app is fast, responsive and easy to use. Players can chose questions from 5 categories, across 3 different difficulty levels. Each round is broken into 16 questions, the goal being to obviously answer the most questions correctly.

When questions are answered, the verse of the bible where the answer can be found is revealed, which I am sure will be a feature many people will appreciate. All in all, this is an excellent app for anyone who wants to deepen or test their knowledge of the bible.





In the words of the developer:

A revealing, rousing, and riveting set of biblical questions specifically designed for people who are eager to learn the scriptures and those who enjoy reading it. In the app, users wi…

SocialBind for Facebook

Today's app of the day is SocialBind for Facebook.

SocialBind for Facebook is a great , fully functional Facebook client for Android Devices. By fully functional, I mean that if you can do it on the official Facebook app, or on the Facebook website, then you should feel right at home with the capabilities of SocialBind for Facebook.

Launching the app (after a simple login process) will launch you to your feed. In traditional Facebook style, different parts of Facebook are accessible from a menu in the top left hand corner of the screen, and SocialBind specific settings are available by pressing the Android menu button.

From here, notification settings can are available, quick access to chat functionality and an exhaustive array of language options and preferences. This is intuitive, fast and a great option for those who aren't entirely satisfied with the official Facebook application.

All in all, this is a fantastic Android application, worthy of an install on any android device. …

The Best Insults App

Today's app of the day is The Best Insults App.

In my opinion, there are times when nothing is more appropriate than a sarcastic put down, or even a genuine insult. Even better, there are times when insults are completely inappropriate, which ultimately, makes them even better yet again!

If you get my vibe, then The Best Insults App is for you, featuring only the best insults available broken into easy to choose categories. Read them, memorize them and never be left in a situation again where you will not be able to respond with something witty, funny, and devastatingly insulting.

The interface is clean, and colorful with no loading times and easy to read text. Navigation is a breeze, making the app great to use in any light, or in any situations - a bar, a bus, at uni or work, there is never a situation where it is not worthwhile to have a good insult primed and ready to go.

All in all, an excellent Android app! If you have a sense of humor, this is for you!

If you are looking for a good action shooter to play on your Android phone or tablet, then SWAT Critical Force Strike is well worth your consideration. The game is essentially an 'on rails' or stationary shooter, in which you control the cross hair of a variety of weapons, trying to defend yourself against eaves of attackers.

At your disposal you have a variety of weapons, such as pistols, shotguns,and even an AK-47. Using a virtual analogue stick on the left side of the screen, you move the cross hair around until an enemy is in your sites. You shoot using a button on the right side of the screen (and do the same for reloading).

As you progress through the 5 levels, stages become more difficult which will require an improvement in your skills. Enemies also shoot back, so you have to be quick in bring their lives to an end, before they get the better of you. With realist sounds and a long campaign, there is enough here to …
