FaceApp is high in the ranks of then Google Play store at the moment, and despite the controversies of white-washing, there's a reason. In short, it's really fun, simple to use and an all round well-designed app that has some great filters and effects.
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.

Tiny Helicopter

Today's app of the day is Tiny Helicopter.


There are plenty of addictive games available for android devices, particularly since the rise and dramatic fall of Flappy Bird, with many developers creating chip rip-offs of the bird and pipe formula. The one thing that many of these games (including Flappy Bird), is that although they may be addictive they are not very much fun. In fact, they are not fun at all! 

Tiny Helicopter looks to break that mold, by taking the classic Flappy Bird formula but my actually making it an enjoyable gaming experience. Of course the game is still challenging and definitely gives players that 'just one more try' type of feel, but the difficulty is at the perfect level. Not too hard, not too easy - just right to keep you wanting to come back.

The concept is simple. You have to fly a helicopter through a series of caverns / cliffs. As you pass each one you get a point, with the goal being to break your your own top scores. The controls are also simple, with one touch all you need to give your helicopter a slight boost and jump. The control of the helicopter feels eally good. Coming from a round of Swing Copter (the 'sequel' to Flappy Bird)r which has atrocious controls , it was refreshing to find the developer has things in this department working well.

The game also looks and sounds great, with simply but effective graphics and the same for the sound track and backing  music. All in all, a great game well worth checking out.



In the words of the developer:

Tap the screen to fly the tiny helicopter through mountains.
Try to get the helicopter as far as you can and earn lots of points!
Test your skills in this fun and challenging to play game!

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…
