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…

Dot Heroes: Woop Woop Ninja

Today's app of the day is Dot Heroes: Woop Woop Ninja.

The mobile gaming platform is amazing for bringing to light new genres of games. With touchscreens, new and innovative styles of gaming are created on seemingly a weekly basis, whether it be Angry Birds, Flappy Birds, 2048, dots - the list goes on and on and on. What is less unique is for a mobile game to take an existing genre and recreate it in a way that is better in every way than the original - and then successfully smash it together with another genre.

A complicated intro I know, but the point I am trying to makes relates directly to Dot Heroes: Woop Woop Ninja, which takes the classic game play of Flappy Birds, mixes it with a turn based battle system, throws in a good mixture of RPG elements, and in the process, creates an entirely new type of mobile game - and a great one at that.

The concept is simple but surprisingly deep. For every 'gate' you pass during the Flappy Bird component of the game, you earn a star. Once you crash you enter a battle arena against an enemy, with each star translating into ammunition. In turn based fashion you square off against the enemy  - the goal being to kill and steal its money. With this money upgrades can be purchased, weapons upgraded, etc.

It may sound strange - but it works great, with the battle sequences giving the game far more depth and replay-ability than it's more similar cousins. It also looks and sounds great, featuring slick graphs and crisp, sharp sounds. All in all, this is a fantastic casual game for Android devices, well worth checking out. Get it now.




In the words of the developer:

A colorful adventure begins! Are you ready for fun?
Use your shuriken and deal tons of damage in arena to this minion monster. Dig treasure, upgrade your weapon, loot potion, coin, grape and level up! There are lots of fun rpg elements! You can combo the critical hit with poison damage and more! Stick with your hero and become the most powerful sensei fighter in the world! Climb in online ranking and show your friends your ultimate flappy skill on the leaderboard! 
Dot Heroes: Woop Woop Ninja is a cartoon style colorfull casual game for everybody. The black - orange standard skin looks cool, but you can unlock other different skins and show them to your friends!

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 …
