Netflix and Android - chromecast, downloading, profiles - close to perfection!

Netflix and Android have always had a great relationship, but over recent years the app has really gone from strength to strength. The interface is fantastic and the feature set continues to grow in meaningful ways, making it one of my must-have apps.
The first example that comes to mind is obviously Chromecast support. Now this isn’t a Netflix exclusive option, and it is supported well in many media apps, but Netflix and Chromecast work so seamlessly well together that I struggle to think about how I survived before the pairing existed!
Next is the newly integrated ‘Download’ option, which allows users to download content and watch it on the go without a data connection.  Honestly, Netflix kicked it out of the park with this one – it could not be easier to use, it includes all the right settings (save to SD, definition quality control, etc) – and best of all it is all within the existing price brackets. I almost feel they could have charged extra for this service alone – but am ext…

Digital Clock Widget

Today's app of the day is Digital Clock Widget.

In my opinion, widgets are one of the core features that set Android apart from lesser mobile operating systems such as iOS. They allow you to open a window into the applications on your phone at a glance, proving access to key features and functionality in an intuitive manner. A shining example of this is a great new Android application / widget - Digital Clock Widget.

As with all widgets, once installed you need to add it to one of your devices home screens. Once added you can then dive into the plethora of features that are offered. In a nutshell, the widgets offers a variety of different clock faces, from simple simulated LCD displays, to more playful clocks. Check out the screen shorts below and you will see what I mean.

This is only the start though. Although a clock is nice to have, the best feature is the intuitive row of quick launch apps that can be selected to launch both directly below the clock itself (as part of the widget), but also in the drop down notifications bar of your device. This feature alone really sets Digital Clock Widget apart from the competitors. It is nice being able to quickly access key apps such as Facebook, Twitter or a flashlight without a series of complicated swipes and taps.

All in all, this is a great android Widget, installed on my device likely for some time to come. Check it out!

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 …
