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…

Battery Saver+ WiFi Booster 3G

Today's app of the day is Battery Saver+ WiFi Booster 3G.

One of the problems with our smart-phones becoming smarter, is that the batteries they carry have not been able to keep up with the usage. Long gone are the days when a single charge will last multiple days - in fact most users are lucky if they can get through a full day without having to plug in to charge. In a similar manner, the data packages offered by most carriers just aren't sufficient, and it is all too easy to get hit by large unexpected bills if data usage creeps over set allowances.

To help with both these problems, developer S R Kapoor has created Battery Saver+ WiFi Booster 3 - an app custom made to boost your battery life and to save your data usage. It does this by presenting you with three simple buttons to press - and thats all. Users can select whether their device is connected to 3G/2G or to wifi - and from there Battery Saver+ WiFi Booster 3G does the rest! It saves your battery by only allowing data or wifi to connect once every 15 minutes, and then only for a 90 second period. This is more than enough for all of your key notifications to arrive (emails, facebook, etc) - but stops the drain happening for those times in between.

If it does turn out that you want to quickly disable the app for any period of time, it is easily accessible by  a new row in the notification  panel. From here the app can easily be turned off in a single click - it could not be easier.

All in all, if you are after a great and simple way to reduce your data usage and save your battery life, then check out Battery Saver+ WiFi Booster 3G. If you aren't convinced, read some of the testimonials in the developer's description and check out the great revies it is getting!

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 …
