FaceApp - despite the controversy there's a reason it is popular!

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.
Check it out today, it's one of those apps well worth downloading and spending a few minutes with!

Halloween Kid Counter

Today's app of the day is Halloween Kid Counter.

With Halloween fast approaching, no doubt everyone is well and truly into the planning phase. For some, that surely means going out and trying to buy the most outrageous costume ever. For others iot may involve decorating the house and carving pumpkins, and for others, it means heading to the supermarket and buying outrageous amounts of candy.

With this in mind, plus the recent trend for everything and everyone embracing the concept of the 'quantified self' comes a great new Android app called Halloween Kid Counter. After installing the app, Halloween Kid Counter allows you to easily keep track of how many 'trick or treaters' knock on your door on Halloween night. This could be useful for those who like to keep track of the number of visitors they have every year.

And that's about it. This is a simple app that does one thing and does it well. On top of being able to keep track of the number of attendees every year, it also allows you to associate a picture with every year. This is a nice extra feature. Interestingly, I actually see uses for this app beyond the Halloween uses, as it is a simple app that allow easy counting across a variety of years, With the ability to customise the background image for a particular year, I imagine people finding ongoing uses. 

All in  all, an interesting app worth checking out.

In the words of the developer:

This simple app allows you to keep track of the number of children that have visited you for Halloween. You can associate a photo of your Halloween decorations with each year of data that you store in the app.
You can also enter historical Halloween data if you choose to.
Click the + or - buttons to increase or decrease the child count.
Click the left or right arrow buttons to go to the previous or next year respectfully.

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…
