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…

EmoCiao

Today's app of the day is EmoCiao.

EmoCiao is an entirely free to use, one of a kind app that puts anyone you want center of the action - and from there - torment or appreciate them at your will. The app launches with the ability for you to chose a sex, then to take a quick photo of your character (or chose a pic from your gallery). From there, you fit your "victims" 'head' to size and apply appropriate clothing for the events that follow. 

After dressing your character you get to torment or appreciate him/her in a variety of hilarious situations, in a form of 'flash-like' animation. Some of the scenarios will see your "victim" walking through a wood at night to fall down a hole, get attacked by wolves, eaten by sharks, etc. There are three types actions that can unfold:

1. Push off - Push off the person that actually peeved you off ie a colleague, a friend, your boss or anyone
2. Thanks - Thanks or congrats someone
3. Love - Show your love to someone ie a  friend, family or your partner

The designers have really came up with a strange array of ways to torment or show appreciation for your character. Once you have watched a scene unfold you can share it or save it, then restart with something new - making it a breeze to create entirely personalized animation.  I'd be lying if I said this wansn't a bizarre concept, but I found the entire experience strangely endearing!

Check it out now!

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 …
