FaceApp - despite the controversy there's a reason it is popular!

FaceApp is high in the ranks of then Google Play store at the moment, and despite the controversies of white-washing, there's a reason. In short, it's really fun, simple to use and an all round well-designed app that has some great filters and effects.
The purpose of the app is simple - simply load it up, take a photo, play with a few dials and then before you know it there's your desired outcome - whether it be a new gender, a younger self, an older self - etc. You name it - FaceApp can do it.
Check it out today, it's one of those apps well worth downloading and spending a few minutes with!

Hero of Vegas - App of the Day

Today's app  the day is Hero of Vegas.

I have always been skeptical about the Vegas slot style games on the Play Store. I could never quite get my head around the appeal - after all there's no chance to win real money, but plenty of opportunity to throw it away into virtual currencies. That aside, I decided to put my skepticism to the side and recently gave the Android game - Hero of Vegas - a spin.

After only a few minutes with the app, I could see why people get hooked! The presentation, the bright lights, the 'gamified' nature of leveling up, and most all  - the sound - really made me want to have one more spin. I found there is something surprisingly satisfying about the sound of the wheel spinning and the various rows locking into place (even if it has been years since anything mechanical was happening behind those LCD screens!)

So will I keep playing? Well I'm not sure. If I wanted the thrill of gambling, there are plenty of better ways to spend my money online.…
