FaceApp - despite the controversy there's a reason it is popular!

FaceApp is high in the ranks of then Google Play store at the moment, and despite the controversies of white-washing, there's a reason. In short, it's really fun, simple to use and an all round well-designed app that has some great filters and effects.
The purpose of the app is simple - simply load it up, take a photo, play with a few dials and then before you know it there's your desired outcome - whether it be a new gender, a younger self, an older self - etc. You name it - FaceApp can do it.
Check it out today, it's one of those apps well worth downloading and spending a few minutes with!


Today's app of the day is Habitfier.

Do you find that you cannot stick to a routine or maintain New Year resolutions? This is an app designed to give consistency and helps you keep track of the habits you want to keep -  like 50 pushups a day or two 30 minute sessions of reading a week. Habitifier follow the assumption that allowing yourself flexibility to go further and build a surplus for future weeks gives more motivation. This allows users to relax when they need to, and to actually get more work done when it is necessary!

Check it out and see what you think - see if you can get your habits under control! Why not install Habitifier and use it to keep track of your new years resolutions and actually make them stick!

Habitifier - all in all, an excellent android app. Works great on both phones and tablets.

In the words of the developer:

Cannot stick to a routine or maintain New Year resolutions? This is a productivity app specifically designed to help with consistency, exploiting a tad of psychology.

This app asks you to translate a habit, say studying a foreign language for 20 minutes three time every week, into numbers to keep track of. That habit will be simply written as 3 sets of 20 reps per week. Or something without repetitions, like donate to a homeless person about once a day, will become 1 set of 1 rep per day. Then, after any work is done, you update with sets as well as additional reps completed. A running label shows you how many sets and reps you are ahead of your plan. Simple!

Many apps include things like to-do lists and reminders. However, there would be no consequence for doing or not doing the tasks in such apps. This app follows the assumption that it is inherently motivating to see oneself progress. The feature of this app is an easy way to keep track, giving oneself motivation to go more than necessary as well avoid losing ground. Use the urge to relax to actually get more work done!

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!

Cosmic Cow

Today's app of the day is Cosmic Cow.

"Endless" games are very in vogue at the moment, whether it be endless running, endless jumping or endless flapping, there are plenty of ways to get unlimited, and challenging gaming fixes. That doesn't mean that there aren't great new games being created in the genre, with Cosmic Cow being one such example.

In essence, Cosmic Cow combines two great styles of game play, one being a side scrolling endless-type game, and the other being the classic side scrolling space ship shooter, popularised in numerous incarnations on 8 and 16 bit consoles of decades past. As a "cosmic cow" (can't help but love it!), the player has to navigate through space, shooting or dodging asteroids and other attacking spaceships. The cow can collect a variety of objects to earn points - though mainly interesting foods that just happen to be floating through space. As points are accumulated, the player can also collect coins to spend on a v…
