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…

True Crime Trivia Quiz

Today's app of the day is True Crime Trivia Quiz.

If you are a fan of murder, crime and mystery - then there is no better app available for you to put your knowledge to the test than True Crime Trivia Quiz. As you may have guessed, the app is a trivia based game that will put you through rounds of 10 multiple choice questions, the goal obviously being to get the most answers correct. Even the biggest crime expert on earth will learn a thing or two from True Crime Trivia Quiz!

To increase the pressure, each round of questions is limited by time, which gradually decreases as the stakes get higher. What I liked even more about this app was the fact that after answering a question (whether wrong or right), a dialogue box opened which provided a few paragraphs of extra information about the event. In this regard, the app is great as not only a quiz game, but also a means of increasing your general knowledge of the subject matter.

At the end of the round, you are presented with a score (from 0 to 10) which is a nice way of encouraging multiple plays - the quest to get a perfect 10! Other nice features include the sounds effects (nothing like a good round of applause after getting an answer right to encourage improvement), and the crisp blood splattering on the wallpaper - it really adds to the impact of the game.

All in all, this is a nice niche quiz game that will really appeal to those interested in the subject matter. Check it out!

In the words of the developer:

How much do you know about Murder and Mayhem?
Are you fascinated by true crime events? 
Intrigued by the juicy little tidbits? 
Do serial killers, kidnappings, deception, & women gone insane absorb you?
Do the words, Waco, Jodi Aries, John Gacy, 9/11, Jon Benet & Charles Manson interest you?
Then you may shudder in delight at the “True Crime Trivia Quiz.”
You will be asked 10 random questions. Each question has 4 answers. 
Pick an answer and move forward.
Each correct answer is followed by a snippet of info about the True Crime event.
If you get all the answers correct, you may just be the next “Sherlock Holmes” in a world of Murder and Mayhem.
Results are displayed at the end of the quiz.

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 …
