Droid App of the Day - a new Android app recommendation every day!

Smart Utlities
9 Apr 2015
Today's app of the day is Smart Utilities.

One of the prevalent trends in the world of mobile apps is the movement away from "all-in-one" apps. Look at the split of Facebook and messenger as a prime example. Similar trends can be seen with the split of Google docs into multiple parts and the split of Google plus and Google photos. I for one am not a fan as it invariably results in an absolute clutter of applications on your device that become more and more difficult to manage.

Smart Utilities is a positive step in reversing that trend - combining 20 or 30 fully featured apps into a single neat package. Installing Smart Utilities has allowed me to remove countless apps from phone - reducing clutter, confusion and importantly saving space. Best of all, I now have a simple unified experience across a wide variety of my phone's functions which makes it far easier to navigate through the most used features of my device. Smart utilities looks great and it works equally as well, allowing you to do things that really should be stock android features.

The list of capabilities is too long to delve into too much detail I but I particularly am a big fan of the wi-fi  file transfer function, the built in weather application and the speed function  which is great for driving.  I strongly suggest you read the full app description below and look at everything that Smart Utilities can do -  it is guarantied to impress!  I am also very impressed with not just the breadth of the functions built into this app - but also how well they work.

All in all, this  is one of the most impressive apps I have ever reviewed.I strongly suggest you download it today!

  In the words of the developer:

Wifi File Explorer
- This utility can connect Android phones with another smartphone or a PC without data cable. Once the app will be installed, users will reach a connection on FTP protocol. User can copy or eliminate files like a normal USB connection. The FTP connection is not complicated. You should insert the address returned from the app in the address bar of any Windows/MAC window, or any other Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox browser. To link two smartphones users can use a simple file manager like ES File Explorer, exploiting its features in order to interface each other through a FTP connection. Wifi File Explorer works with any FTP client i.e. FileZilla.

Today's app of the day is Clash of Kingdoms.

Mobile platforms have for a long time been the realm of simple gaming - the type to hold you over for a few brief minutes on public transport or when waiting in line. Luckily, with mobile platforms evolving so quickly, mobile games are starting to obtain greater degrees of depth and complexity - without sacrificing innovative ideas and enjoyable game play.

New units will increase your powers and tactics and upgrades will add to the capability of your army. It all ads for varied tactics with plenty of scope to try new things and win in a variety of ways.

In addition to great game play the game look great. The grid like landscape reminds you of classic PC games of years past and the animations as characters hack and slash each other are great. To go along with it are some great sounds and animations!
