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…

Check out the best Android casino apps

Today, I am recommending not just a single app but an entire suite of android casino apps. Everyone knows that google play offers plenty of 'casino-ish' games, but little do people know that the android platform is capable of running real casino apps, where the winnings and losing are in actual cash, not in imaginary credits.

Of course, this does require installing apps from a source other than the Google Play app store, but users shouldn't be put off as the process is actually quite easy. It is referred to 'sideloading' and with the press of a few buttons you can unlock your android phone and allow the installation of a wide variety of apps - including the multitude of real-money android casino apps. More information on how to sideload is easy to find! If that sounds too hard, then don't worry - many of the online casinos even allow you to browse directly from your phone's web browser - no install required!

Once the apps are installed, they can be used like any other android app - often with some simple sign up screens and then you are good to go. Of course, each online casino has different offerings so it doesn't hurt to try out a few until you find where you are truly comfortable. If you want to see what is available check out a list of casino apps here.

Best of all, going to the casino on your android device is one of the most hassle-free ways to enjoy your favourite casino games without the hassle of actually getting to a casino. There is no drive, no parking, no queuing for tables, no drunk people spilling drinks over you and no throngs of people to maneuver through to get to your favourite game. Instead, it is quick, easy and discreet. You couldn't ask for a simpler experience.

I've included a few screenshots throughout the article of the experience you can expect - trust me - it is good. Best of all, many of the online casinos offer incentives to sign up, such as free bets or even free credit - you definitely won't get that on the strip of vegas!

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 …
