Netflix and Android - chromecast, downloading, profiles - close to perfection!

Netflix and Android have always had a great relationship, but over recent years the app has really gone from strength to strength. The interface is fantastic and the feature set continues to grow in meaningful ways, making it one of my must-have apps.
The first example that comes to mind is obviously Chromecast support. Now this isn’t a Netflix exclusive option, and it is supported well in many media apps, but Netflix and Chromecast work so seamlessly well together that I struggle to think about how I survived before the pairing existed!
Next is the newly integrated ‘Download’ option, which allows users to download content and watch it on the go without a data connection.  Honestly, Netflix kicked it out of the park with this one – it could not be easier to use, it includes all the right settings (save to SD, definition quality control, etc) – and best of all it is all within the existing price brackets. I almost feel they could have charged extra for this service alone – but am ext…

Clash of Kingdoms

Today's app of the day is Clash of Kingdoms.

Mobile platforms have for a long time been the realm of simple gaming - the type to hold you over for a few brief minutes on public transport or when waiting in line. Luckily, with mobile platforms evolving so quickly, mobile games are starting to obtain greater degrees of depth and complexity - without sacrificing innovative ideas and enjoyable game play.

Clash of Kingdoms is one such game - a great new strategy game for Android phones that has amazingly deep game play, some fantastic strategic elements, all the while, remaining great fun to play no matter where you are. At its surface, Clash of Kingdoms seems like a relatively straightforward turn based strategy game, though as you progress through the various stages and new units become available and enemies become tougher the strategic elements really comes alive. New units will increase your powers and tactics and upgrades will add to the capability of your army. It all ads for varied tactics with plenty of scope to try new things and win in a variety of ways.

In addition to great game play the game look great. The grid like landscape reminds you of classic PC games of years past and the animations as characters hack and slash each other are great. To go along with it are some great sounds and animations!

All in all, this is a great android game, well worth checking out. One of my new favorites!

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 …
