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…

Legend Online: Dragons

Today's app of the day is Legends Online: Dragons.

There are plenty of great RPGs to chose from on PC's, any plenty more of them that are of the "Massive, Multi-player"variety. Legends Online: Dragons is an attempt to capture that depth and style of game play and transfer it to the mobile platform. This is an ambitious task, but thankfully, developer FreeThought has pulled it off. The results are a highly satisfying, polished android gaming experience, that should keep even the most die hard RPG fans happy.

Setting up Legends Online: Dragons could not be easier. After a quick install and load, the game boots into a short story and a character selection screen. After selecting a character (having to choose between a typical assortment of RPG charavters, each with their strengths and weaknesses) you will be thrown into your first battle. Nothing is really required for victory the first time round (as it is more of a demo), but I was immediately impressed by the quality of the build of this game. Everything looks fantastic, with high quality animations and excellent sounds - it really made me keen to get stuck in.

From there, you are presented with a map, where you can explore a variety of different locations. The first priority is character customisation, where your hero can be equipped with weapons and inventory can be managed. From that point, the game progresses, with your character levelling up as battles are won, with each victory adding points to your profile, allowing you to increase skills and gain more powerful items and weapons. There are also quests that your hero can undertake, which when completed provide additional reward for your character.

At the core of Legends Online: Dragons is the fighting, which is a turn based RPG affair which will be instantly within the comfort zone of any RPG player. For newcomers, the interface is simple enough to pick up without any difficulty, and the game really eases you into things, starting off with unloose-able fights to allow you to get comfortable with the game play. After using a weapon or attack, you must wait a desired amount of time for it to recharge for a second use, which will require thinking strategically about your attack choices, especially when coming across multiple enemies.

There is a lot of depth to this game, and in my play I only just scratched the surface. At every point of the game new layers of depth were added which really game me the impression that hours, if not days, could be sunk into this handheld experience.  With a great active community that seems to be growing quickly, quick levelling up in the initial levels to get you hooks, fantastic graphics and solid all round gameplay - this is a must have android game.

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!
