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…

Fairy Marble Spells

Today's app of the day is Fairy Marble Spells.

There are plenty of great, addictive Android games available in Google Play that adopt the tried and tested 'three star' level progression system. Unfortunately, many of these games seem to be carbon copies of more successful predecessors - lacking in quality and originality. Luckily, Fairy Marble Spells breaks this tradition, taking all the best bits of mobile gaming experiences, but combining them with innovative, challenging and rewarding gameplay. Overall, this results in a fantastic mobile experience!

The main gameplay hook in Fairy Marble Spells is a strange one, but it is simple to get the hang of. In short, players are required to touch a sequence of marbles in the correct order in an attempt to learn spells. If you have managed to get the order correct, all the marbles will turn an emerald green colour and you will receive a rating out of three stars depending on how many touches it took.

Sounds easy enough right? The challenge though is how each marble reacts when it is touched. Every marble changes colour when touched and cycles between red, blue and green. It also means that sometimes, a single touch of a marble will cause multiple marbles to change. It takes a few rounds to get the hang of, but before long it is not easy to see why this game is getting such great reviews!

On top of great gameplay, Fairy Marble Spells looks great, with crisp graphics and great design, making it easy to navigate and get straight into the gameplay. All in all, a great android app. Check it out! 

In the words of the developer:

Fairy Marble Spells is an addictive puzzle game. In this game you are going to learn the fairy marble spells. But how to? It’s your challenge to find it out. Touch the marbles in correct sequence so that all marbles will turn into emerald green color. Sounds like an easy challenge? The marbles have their spells. If you touch one marble, the others will change their colors too. Each marble has its own uniqueness changing pattern. But one thing for sure is that they cycle through the colors blue, red, and green. So as a good fairy, you must turn them all into emerald green color by correct sequence of touches. And if you succeed, you will be awarded 3 stars by fairy headmaster.
- An addictive hard puzzle game 
- 72 puzzles to be solved
- It will make you think and think harder
- You can always replay it to try to get 3 stars
- You don’t need a magic wand to solve it, a pencil and a small piece of paper might be useful :)
Have fun with this app. :)
* It is highly appreciated if you could spare some time to rate this application. Thank you for all.

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 …
