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…

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 difficulty.

Trust me, HOEDOWN is an experience like none other on Google Play - both addicting and memorable. All in all, this is an excellent android app, well worth downloading! 

In the words of the developer:

Howdy Partner! Y’all are invited to come on down for the foot stompin Lite version of HOEDOWN! Thars plenty of hootin, hollerin and good old gold mining in this little old app called HOEDOWN LITE. Not only are yall tryin to collect thar gold for your old friend Rusty Rails the miner but you will also be tryin to stay away from thems nasty old dynamite boxes and pickaxes that take all thems lovely gold away. As yall travel through three levels thems mountains tries to trick you and boy does they do a good job of that. But don’t be fooled and y'all might just keep that gold.

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 …
