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…

Top Picks - sport betting tips

Today's app of the day is Top Picks - sport betting tips.

Betting on sports is never easy, because ultimately, at the end of every game or race there is only one winner, and there has to be a looser. Of course, it doesn't mean that betting your hard earned cash has to be based on only luck. Instead, it is possible to take a far more practical approach to the business of betting, and that is where Top Picks - sport betting tips, is here to help.

Using a statistical based method of calculating the odds of particular outcomes, Top Picks allows you to regain some control of your betting, allowing you to make more informed, instead of emotional decisions. It does this by presenting to you in a simple and informative way the Top Picks for betting for any particular day. Of course, you aren't guaranteed to win, but the extra information can help aside your decision making!

To help keep you on track, Top Picks keeps statistical records of how their tips are performing, with key information such as win/loss ratios and efficiencies. I found this long term statistical information to be quite useful.

Best of all, Top Picks looks great, and works fantastically. Implementing a simple 'holo' design style, the app looks modern and is responsive. In short, it simply works, and for a free app, there is not much to complain about. Of course, power-users might want to pay a small fee to unlock even more tips, but there is nothing stopping you to try this out at zero risk! All in all, a great app. Check it out.

In the words of the developer:

Get free sport betting tips and predictions directly on your mobile phone. 
Almost every day there are new sport betting tips available!

Top Picks is a sport betting advice application that gives predictions for outcome of many sport events also known as betting tips. Predictions are available for many different sport disciplines such as: soccer, football, tennis, basketball, hockey, voleyball and more. Almost every day there are new sport betting picks!

Some of the tips are "locked" which means they are not available for free. User can choose to unlock them by paying a small fee. However it doesn't always mean that one tips are better than the others. User can either unlock just a single day or 30 days in one go. Additionally if there are no locked tips there are also no ad banners in the app.

We keep track of all current month picks predictions and results in order to calculate the statistics. Statistics are grouped by month and show net profit (or loss) and efficiency.

Our aim is to bring you profitable tips which hopefully can be done if followed in the longer term.

Important / Disclaimer

Sport betting can be very unpredictable with many surprising results. Make sure you are in control of your betting and do not risk money that you cannot afford to lose!

You are using this application at your own risk. All betting tips are provided for general information purposes only. No one will be responsible in any manner for loss caused in any way as a result of the use of this application.

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 …
