Tiny Helicopter
26 Aug 2014
Today's app of the day is Tiny Helicopter.

There are plenty of addictive games available for android devices, particularly since the rise and dramatic fall of Flappy Bird, with many developers creating chip rip-offs of the bird and pipe formula. The one thing that many of these games (including Flappy Bird), is that although they may be addictive they are not very much fun. In fact, they are not fun at all! 
Tiny Helicopter looks to break that mold, by taking the classic Flappy Bird formula but my actually making it an enjoyable gaming experience. Of course the game is still challenging and definitely gives players that 'just one more try' type of feel, but the difficulty is at the perfect level. Not too hard, not too easy - just right to keep you wanting to come back.
The concept is simple. You have to fly a helicopter through a series of caverns / cliffs. As you pass each one you get a point, with the goal being to break your your own top scores. The controls are also simple, with one touch all you need to give your helicopter a slight boost and jump. The control of the helicopter feels eally good. Coming from a round of Swing Copter (the 'sequel' to Flappy Bird)r which has atrocious controls , it was refreshing to find the developer has things in this department working well.
The game also looks and sounds great, with simply but effective graphics and the same for the sound track and backing  music. All in all, a great game well worth checking out.

In the words of the developer:

Tap the screen to fly the tiny helicopter through mountains.
Try to get the helicopter as far as you can and earn lots of points!
Test your skills in this fun and challenging to play game!

Today's app of the day is Web PC Suite - File Transfer.

One of the biggest hassles with loading your new android device with content is having to mess around with USB cables, drivers, complicated PC suites. If all you want to do is move a few songs, picture or videos around, there surely has to be an easier way! Luckily, there is, and that comes in the form of Web PC Suite - File Transfer, the best way to move files seamlessly between your computer and your android device without the need for a cable. It could not be easier!
The process of setting up Web PC Suite is amazingly simply. To start you install the app from the google play store (links at the bottom of the review), then you have three options to form a connection with your PC. You can enter a customised URL or head over to and scan a QR code. From there a connection is formed and you will be presented with a simple to use interface whereby you will have full access to all the files on your phone, allowing you to move, copy, paste and rename files - the control is as powerful as if you were connected by USB.
To make things even simpler, the web interface allows you to play media, read text documents, view pictures and play music directly from your device without having to copy files to your PC as an intermediate step. If you have photos on your phone but want to show them to someone on the bugger PC screen, this is a great and quick way of making that happen!
At the end of the day, this is a fantastic and simple android app which will free up the way you interact with your phone on your computer. No more annoying software or broken USB cables - you can now access all your files wirelessly and effortlessly. Check it out!
