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…

Movie Transcript Database

Today's app of the day is Movie Transcript Database.

The sheer variety of apps available for Android devices continues to amaze me every time I browse the app store. Today is no exception, as I happened to stumble across a great new app called Movie Transcript Database. The name of the app is pretty self explanatory, but install this FREE app, and within seconds you will have access to the full scripts of 1000's of movies, from golden classics to the newest blockbusters.

Using the app could not be easier, with scripts capable of being searched for, browsed, saved (bookmarked) and reviewed in lists based on popularity. Once you have a script loaded on the screen, which literally only takes seconds, you can easily flick down and follow along with your favourite movies. It is surprisingly satisfying following along with one of your favourite movies!In addition to the above great features, the developer has included the capability to request transcripts that are not yet available within the app.

All in all, this a great Android app. It has a clean, smooth interface, and does exactly what it states on the packet - that is, dishing up movie transcripts easily and quickly. Get it now!



 

In the words of the developer:

Find thousands of movie scripts from the latest blockbuster movies all the way back to the golden age of Hollywood in the movie transcript database!
Search a database of over 10,000 (and counting!) transcripts to find scripts for your favourite movies :)
Need a transcript not in the database? Please use the "Request a Movie Transcript" option in the "More" menu and it will be added A.S.A.P.
Check out the charts for the most read transcripts of all time, the year, the month, the week or the day. Find the latest additions to the database on the new page and the app allows you to bookmark your favourite scripts so you can quickly and easily return to read them.
The database is ideal for looking up that all important movie quote :)

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 …
