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…

Review: Coral Casino

Today I’m having a look at the Coral Casino gaming website. This is another excellent casino gaming resource that can be accessed via a laptop, tablet or mobile and it certainly made for a good evening’s entertainment. With plenty of fun gameplay options and some colourful graphics, it kept me coming back for more - and that wasn’t because of the daily cashdrops either!

Playing casino games might seem a little retro, but the team at Coral have done a great job on updating many traditional games like roulette, poker and blackjack with a new twist for the 21st century.


In particular, the simple game of roulette has been made a lot more fun thanks to Coral’s Live Roulette that brings live deals and real-time gameplay to your living room. It can be a pretty surreal experience to have a real-life croupier instructing you through the gameplay as you’re sat at home, but the £500 in cash on offer definitely added a further touch of realism!


However, everyone knows that it’s slots gaming that’s probably the biggest reason as to why everyone’s getting in on the online casino craze. And thankfully the Coral review of slots games on their site provides a great overview of how the game has been reinvented for mobile devices.

There’s pretty much something for everyone here with slots games that can take you to the races or even see you gaming alongside some of the stars from the TV screen. And the auto-play feature and the multiplier options definitely added further levels of convenience and profitability!


It’s features like these that made the gaming site so much easier to enjoy than many other data-heavy games that have often brought my mobile to a grinding halt. With even the games of video poker managing to provide some simple and effective smartphone entertainment despite the variety of strategies and playing styles on offer, it’s a testament to the skill of the developers that they’ve managed to cram in so much without the site feeling overcrowded or hard to navigate.

And I’d say that it’s the ever-present sense of fun that permeates the Coral site that really gives it the edge on its competitors. With colourful visuals, a massive variety of online slots options and some spectacular promotions that have even taken people on trips to Monte Carlo, it’s clear that Coral are onto a winner with their online casino games!

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 …
