First Look – Thing Launcher

There was a time not so long ago when custom launchers ruled the roost. Google’s own offering was pretty basic and unimaginative, and the stock versions pre-installed by many OEM’s were at times shocking. Now with Google making their Now/Nexus/Pixel launcher with it’s Google services integration available to all, and OEM’s generally toning down their own modifications the h...[Read More]

CSI Android – CamFinger

Ask anyone who gorges on crime dramas and you will know the guys and gals in the labs are wizards at identifying a unique detail that can point to a specific item or person. From fingerprints to ballistics to identifying what typewriter (one for the oldies) produced a page, unique signatures are everywhere. With that said it should come as no surprise that your smartphone also has it’s own unique ...[Read More]

60 Second App Review – GLOW Watchface

For watchface developers it is becoming increasingly hard to come up with a USP to help set their work apart from the crowd. Glow goes down the cusomisation route rather than trying to add additional features. The premise is pretty simple, match your watchface to your outfit. No changing the design of the watch, just the colours. The design is also a simple affair. A simple digital style with a sm...[Read More]

Price – Free Ads – No IAP – Yes Rating 7/10 It can be incredibly handy having full blown wordprocessors on your mobile phone, and even more so if you have a tablet.

60 Second App Review – SuperFuse

Price – £1.79 Ads – no IAP – No Rating – 6 The idea of using multiple images to create one better image isn’t new on smartphones. Google Photos will automatically stitch images together to create a panorama. OnePlus has a camera setting on the OnePlus One where the camera app would take a series of shots and combine them in a single high res image. SuperFuse uses this...[Read More]

60 Second App Review – MyScript Calculator

Price – Free Ads – Yes (although I have yet to actually see any) IAP – No Rating – 8 I cant remember ever owning a mobile phone that didn’t come with a calculator app pre installed. The Play Store is also littered with them, many being novice app developers first attempts. To catch the eye or even be considered useful a calculator app really needs to offer something b...[Read More]

60 Second App Review – Sunrise Icon pack

Price – Free Ads – No IAP – No Rating – 9 One of my pet hates with themes or icon packs is when the developer/designer goes a little crazy with a single colour. It’s always nicer when they use colour intelegently instead. For me thats what Sunshine does, it uses tones and a general theme to create a look and feel. With around 600 custom icons all of the most popular a...[Read More]
