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…

Web PC Suite - File Tansfer

Today's app of the day is Web PC Suite - File Transfer.


One of the biggest hassles with loading your new android device with content is having to mess around with USB cables, drivers, complicated PC suites. If all you want to do is move a few songs, picture or videos around, there surely has to be an easier way! Luckily, there is, and that comes in the form of Web PC Suite - File Transfer, the best way to move files seamlessly between your computer and your android device without the need for a cable. It could not be easier!

The process of setting up Web PC Suite is amazingly simply. To start you install the app from the google play store (links at the bottom of the review), then you have three options to form a connection with your PC. You can enter a customised URL or head over to http://webpcsuite.com and scan a QR code. From there a connection is formed and you will be presented with a simple to use interface whereby you will have full access to all the files on your phone, allowing you to move, copy, paste and rename files - the control is as powerful as if you were connected by USB.

To make things even simpler, the web interface allows you to play media, read text documents, view pictures and play music directly from your device without having to copy files to your PC as an intermediate step. If you have photos on your phone but want to show them to someone on the bugger PC screen, this is a great and quick way of making that happen!

At the end of the day, this is a fantastic and simple android app which will free up the way you interact with your phone on your computer. No more annoying software or broken USB cables - you can now access all your files wirelessly and effortlessly. Check it out!

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 …
