The purpose of the app is simple - simply load it up, take a photo, play with a few dials and then before you know it there's your desired outcome - whether it be a new gender, a younger self, an older self - etc. You name it - FaceApp can do it.

Turtle Pizza Jump (Free)

Today's app of the day is Turtle Pizza Jump (Free).

Now I have played plenty of strange and surreal games on my Android device, but Turtle Pizza Jump is my newest contender for the strangest game available on Google Play! Now that is saying a lot, particularly having regard to a store full of angry birds, crazy pigs, subway surfers, and many more strange and bizarre gaming combinations!

So how is Turtle Pizza Jump so bizarre? Well, catch this - it is about a turtle (think a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle) who jumps from hovering pizza's to pizza, eating slices along the way, whilst in the background are some of the most bizarre images to ever surface from the dark depths of the web - such as cat's poking their heads through slices of pizza or super close ups of pugs eating pizza.

Bizzare? Absolutely. But is it any good to actually play? Surprisingly - the answer is yes! The gameplay sees you take control of your warrior turtle , jumping from rotating pizza slice to slice. As you land on a pizza yoyr turtle will cling to the outside of it as it spins in a circle. The object is then to press the jump button (single tap) at just the right time to fly through the most slices of pizza on your way to the next wheel. 

The single jump feature in this game is similar to that of other rotating jumpers (yes, I just invented a term for a whole new style of gameplay), but Turtle Pizza Jump is made unique by the ability to jump backwards in the direction you came from, and to double jump. This really frees up the gameplay! The object is to get a high score, achieved quite simply by eating the most pizza!

All in all, this is a really great android app. It looks bizarre (but great), has excellent sounds, is responsive and is a real joy for gamers of all ages. Check it out!

In the words of the developer:

Jump your warrior turtle to a full belly of pizza and soda blissful happiness. This game is made to entertain smaller children and adults alike. Includes funny backgrounds of different animals enjoying pizza, as well as funny pizzas made to look like other characters. Along with those images come funny game sounds as well.

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!

Cosmic Cow

Today's app of the day is Cosmic Cow.

"Endless" games are very in vogue at the moment, whether it be endless running, endless jumping or endless flapping, there are plenty of ways to get unlimited, and challenging gaming fixes. That doesn't mean that there aren't great new games being created in the genre, with Cosmic Cow being one such example.

In essence, Cosmic Cow combines two great styles of game play, one being a side scrolling endless-type game, and the other being the classic side scrolling space ship shooter, popularised in numerous incarnations on 8 and 16 bit consoles of decades past. As a "cosmic cow" (can't help but love it!), the player has to navigate through space, shooting or dodging asteroids and other attacking spaceships. The cow can collect a variety of objects to earn points - though mainly interesting foods that just happen to be floating through space. As points are accumulated, the player can also collect coins to spend on a v…
