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…

Super Resume Builder

Today's app of the day is Super Resume Builder.

It's a common story - a professional with great experience and a wonderful attitude gets beaten for a new job by someone of lesser experience, personality and skills. Did they bomb the interview - of course not! Their problem was  they did not even get an interview. Why? Because their resume was not up to the standards expected in today's competitive employment environment.

If this sounds familiar, or is a risk you want to avoid then I can not suggest more strongly that you install Smart Resume Builder on your android device today and start the path to creating a simple, effective and professional resume. Best of all - the entire product, from start to finish can be created from the convenience of your phone, making it a simple process to not only create your resume, but then to keep it up to date as your situations change.

The app words by giving you a variety of resume types to create. Once this has been chose, the app guides you through a series of questions where you input your personal information, experience, education, skills, achievements, etc. Each section is compartmentalized so as to never feel overwhelming or too big of a job. Given that making a resume is usually such a tedious task, it was refreshing to have most of the 'thinking' taken out of the equation.

After inputting the information, the resume is then 'built' by the app, for you to start submitting. If you are interested - check out a few examples of what can be produced here (basic) and here (intermediate).

Trust me - after years of applying for jobs I can guarantee that simplicity wins out every time. Employers like having something that is easy to read and intelligently presented, and Super Resume Builder hits that mark every time. I'm so impressed, I've converted my own resume into the intermediate template and am really happy with the results!

All in all, a great android app!

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 …
