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…

2 Remember Memories in Memory

Today's Android app of the day is 2 Remember.

There are plenty of great note taking or task creation apps for Android devices. Examples like Evernote or Google Keep jump immediately to mind, but there are plenty more. Unfortunately, they are all quite basic in their functionality, and only allow the capturing of the most rudimentary notes or 'memories',

2 Remember tries to change this, taking the basic memory or note taking functionality of many apps, but enhancing it in every way, allowing for the capture of not just photos, text, video and audio, but also the people involved, location and events at that time.

After 2 Remember is installed you can happy ditch every other note or thought taking application on your device, as 2 Remember really does cover the entire field. Whether it be taking notes in a class, scanning complex documents or receipts for safe storage, organizing trips, storing shopping lists, keeping audio notes of your thoughts - there is no form of 'memory' or idea that can not be stored in 2 Remember.

On top of exhaustive functionality, 2 Remember is also very simple to use with an interface that guides you through the memory input process through promoting boxes, such as 'when?', 'where', 'with', and 'what?' The interface is smooth, allowing for the focus to be on inputting information, rather than guiding through complex menus or slow interfaces.

Finally, memories can be easily shared with friends, searched, filtered or visualized through great search functionality and a timeline / map to show when and where memories were entered. All in all, this is an excellent android app, well worth the install. Check it out today!

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 …

UNCHARTED: Fortune Hunter - continue Drake's adventure on your phone!

It's been a while now since Uncharted 4 was released though to date it is still one of the best games on the PS4. At the time of its release, a lot of people might not have noticed that an Android entry into the Uncharted series was also released. Now I'm late to the party on this one but I think it's well worth checking out - better late than never!

The game is in the style of the 'Go' games that are really popular, such as Hitman Go and Lara Croft Go. The gameplay sees you move from square to square on a map trying to unlock a series of objectives or reach a destination. It's a polished game with great sound, graphics and gameplay. Strongly recommended!
