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…

Top poker sites to play Poker on Android

Below is a straight forward and easy to follow guide showing you just how easy it is to play poker on any Android device, just follow this guide and in no time you will be playing any of your favourite poker variants such as Texas Hold ‘Em poker in no time!
There are loads of apps that offer poker features on the Android platform, however, to ensure that you’re truly getting the best deal, only go with the top online casinos and those that are best known. If you’re struggling to choose, take a walk down your high street, and take a look at the bookies there. Quite often these businesses do have apps and separate arms to the business offering slots, bingo, blackjack, poker and even full blown casinos!  Have a look at the article written by Adrian Sterne from to look at the poker websites that have android apps.
Once you have downloaded and installed the app, you simply have to sign in or sign up if you are a new customer. The registration is quick and simple, and once you’ve deposited funds into your new account, you’ll be awarded with some optional bonuses which you can opt out of should you wish.
Now that you have funds in your account, you are all ready to go! So head on over to those tables and be prepared to raise, fold and check against your fellow players.
There is only one word of warning we can give about using your android device when out and about and playing poker,  sports betting online and that is ensure you have enough charge in your battery to ensure you can have a decent session, because if you enter a tournament and the battery goes flat, that’s it!
To ensure that you get the most out of your battery, clear the RAM and close any open apps before your launch your poker app, also, reduce the brightness of the screen and turn off unused features like Bluetooth, Infrared, wifi (if you’re not using it) and turn off the sound and vibration. These may only buy you an extra 15-20 minutes, but those extra minutes could be just enough for you to finish your game!
You can of course play for free on a lot of poker apps by simply playing as a guest, and this will allow you to evaluate how the app works and also become accustomed to how your device reacts to the software. When playing in free mode, you won’t be playing against other players, but against the app itself, and if you are a little rusty, or are still learning to play, it won’t be too embarrassing should you make a complete pig’s ear of your game!

When it comes to funding your account, make sure that the App uses encrypted connections and that the provider, for example Ladbrokes, BetFred, Paddy Power etc, hold a present and valid licence to provide a gambling interface.

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!
