Eta Lego

Today's app of the day is Eta Lego.

Eta Lego is an interesting new drawing game whereby users can create images (see examples below) using nothing a series of horizontal coloured blocks. Blocks range from 1 square a piece, to 6 squares long, and there are 12 different colours available.

Users 'draw' by creating their block in the upper row of the palette, then dragging it onto the black canvas. The canvas can be zoomed in and out using standard multi touch controls with is a nice addition, allowing you to precisely place pieces.

It sounds like a pretty basic toolset, but it is amazing the quality of images that can be created with enough patience. Check out the rose below as a great example. Once an image has been created it can easily be saved and shared with friends. A very interesting concept, well worth exploring. Check it out!



 In the words of the developer:

Make drawings with etalego.
You can create pieces with different size and color using the upper line of the palette. …

Hoedown Lite

Today's app of the day is Hoedown Lite.

HOEDOWN is a Fast Paced Gold Mining App like no other. HOEDOWN places you in the midst of a Real Live Gold Rush in which you must use your tapping skills to harvest the gold. The 50 Level HOEDOWN and 5 Level HOEDOWN LITE feature an Old West Theme and foot stomping Banjo Music and Rusty Rails the Miner who yells HOEDOWN amongst other things while playing. The object of the game is to help your old friend Rusty Rails the Miner and tap on the gold and falling bonus objects (like the Cupcakes or Cherries) and to avoid the bad objects like the Dynamite Crates and Skeleton Bombs. 

No two levels of HOEDOWN are the same because of the Dynamic Psychedelic backgrounds that add to the fun of this unique game. The western themed backgrounds will warp in and out of focus or spin or move side to side. Certain levels even feature the scary Skeleton Strobe too. To make it to level 50 in the Full Hoedown App is a real accomplishment considering HOEDOWN's d…

True Love Quotes

Today's app of the day is True Love Quotes. 
True Love Quotes is another great app in a long string of quotation applications that I have recently reviewed. The format is similar to other apps I have reviewed, with the ability to quickly flick through random quotes and to easily share the quote with friends. The interface is clean and sharp, the quotes are easy to read, the colour scheme is pleasant and the entire experience simply 'works'. 
This sort of app would be perfect for speeches at weddings, engagement parties or anniversaries. For the more hopeless romantic's out there, put a quote on the card to a bunch of flowers and you will no doubt be in the good books with your significant other. If you are ever in need of some romantic words, then look no further. 
All in all, a great Android quotation app - worth checking out. 

In the words of the developer:
It all begins with the words. But the words have to be pleasant. Words must be touching and amazing. True Love Quote…

My Virtual Girlfriend Free

Today's app of the day is My Virtual Girlfriend Free.


Growing up in the 90's, every kid at my school went through the phase of owning a virtual pet, or a Tamagotchi. Their game-play was simple yet addictive, and involved keeping your pet alive by performing a variety of activities in the form of mirco-games, such as feeding, playing and training. In short, the more time you spent with your virtual pet, the longer they lived and the happier they were.

Jump forward 20 years, and this same concept has transitioned onto smartphones, but with an entirely different subject matter. Gone are pixelated cats, dogs or dinosaurs, and in their place are busty virtual girlfriends, complete with star and stripes swimsuits and sexy lingerie. Yes, you are reading right - welcome to the realm of the 'virtual girlfriend'. If this sounds interesting, then keep reading, as My Virtual Girlfriend will be right up your alley.



The concept behind My Virtual Girlfriend is simple. You "create&q…

Want to sync like a boss?

I download a lot of things from the net for transfer to my phone. Whether it be movies, music, comics, ebooks, audio books  TV shows, pictures, APK files and magazines - I download them all for us on my phone and tablet. In the past this was always a tiresome process, involving downloading the files, then plugging the phone into the computer, copying the files over, then storing them somewhere locally on the computer. I personally found this entire process really tiresome, so set out to automate and solve the process. 

Of course there are plenty of cloud storage solutions, but I wanted a solution that would allow me to sync full folders between my PC and phone - not just in the cloud but in actual files downloaded (if that makes sense). Thanks to the freedoms of Android - my solution is below. 


Step One: 
Install Google Drive on my PC. It isn't necessary for this to be Google Drive - other cloud storage apps such as Box, Skydrive and Dropbox also work. Set up the cloud storage applic…
