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…


Today's app of the day is Coins.

There are plenty of great Wallpaper applications available for Android devices, but unfortunately live wallpapers have never seemed to take off. I think it is because they are often too 'busy' or over complicated, distracting from the user experience. Coins, a great new wallpaper app seems to have rrecognized this, providing a great pack of lvie wallpapers that are both interactive, yet not distracting - adding to the overall user experience instead of distracting from it.

With Coins, you can choose from a variety of simple wallpapers (koi fish, zodiac years, lucky symbols, etc) and then have a number of coins float calmly over the image. Check out the video above and you will see exactly what I mean. One of the best features is that the coins actually tap into your phones accelerator and move as you shift the screen about - tilt the phone to the left and you will be able to see the coins begin to gradually drift in that direction.

With the ability to purchase and have up to 9 coins on the screen at a time, this is a great android wallpaper app worth checking out. For live wallpaper fans, especially those interest in Chinese symbols of prosperity and luck, this is a must have app,

In the words of the developer:

COINSé’± LIVE WALLPAPER. Ignite wealth, luck, prosperity, with this visually exciting and powerful app. There are ten emperors from the Qing dynasty, each with there own coin representing they reign in power. With this live wallpaper app you choose a wallpaper e.g. koi fish, zodiac year, Chinese lucky symbol ect, Then after you have purchased coins you can activate up to one to nine coins. Once coins and wallpaper have been activated, coins will float harmoniously around your phone and over the wallpaper. Coins move with your phone, e.g. tilt your phone to the left coins will move left with your phone. You can also purchase a five element pagoda for protection from negative energy that brings misfortune.

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 …
