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…


Today's app of the day is Bust-A-Nut.

In my opinion, there is nothing better than settling into a long bus ride, or chilling on a comfy couch, playing a good puzzle game on your android device. There is something so intuitive about touch interfaces and the genre, that just seems to 'work' far better than most of the action games or other entries into the Google Play Store. Like many android gamers, 'game of choice' seems to change on quite a frequent basis, whether it be CandyCrush, Simpsons Tapped Out or the dreaded Flappy Bird (RIP). For the last few days though, I have not been able to go past Bust-A-Nut - the latest and probably best game from developer Bitoxic. It has me hooked!

The concept is somewhat similar to a number of puzzle games available, in that your objective is to link a number of same coloured items in a row - in this case - nuts. The longer the rows, the more points and gold stars you achieve. Thrown in the mix are a variety of power ups, unlocked by joining 5 or more nuts in a row. The effects of using one of these nuts vary - but inevitably they work to your advantage, clearing rows or giving you extra time for example.

One of the best features of Bust-A-Nut, that in my opinion sets it apart from the other games in this genre, is the ability to link items diagonally. This may sound simple, but it really opens up the gameplay and offers more freedom and strategy to link longer strings of nuts. I found this quite liberating and glad that the developer went to the extra effort to make this possible!

On top of all this, Bust-A-Nut just looks and sounds fantastic. The graphics are crisp and the sounds perfectly match the cartoon-style of gameplay. The display is bright and colourful, making it an absolute pleasure to use. In all honesty, sometimes after reviewing apps, I can not wait to get them off my phone. In the case of Bust-A-Nut, it will be staying installed for quite some time to come as I progress further into it's gameplay. All in all, this is an excellent android app! Go check it out!

 In the words of the developer:

Bust-A-Nut is a simple puzzle game that is easy to play, yet testing your agility & reflexes! Connect matching nuts to make them explode, then score as many points as you can before time runs out! Nuts can be sweet as candy... just match them to crack them!
See why many players have taken up the challenge in this intensely enjoyable game of both skill and lightning-speed action. Come see for yourself why so many are glued to their android devices and enjoy the fruitful busty experience!

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 …
