Before going to the actual content, let me ask you one question. Can you ever tolerate any of your Operating System with no proper software in it? If you’re a true Computer User, you won’t even think about it. Despite the fact is Operating Systems are the backbone of your PC/mobiles/tablets, you actually use them as a way to use other software and apps.

We could say without any doubt that Applications make high contributions on determining the usability of Platform.

As far as I know, the large number of Applications available in Google Play Store is the biggest reason of Android’s success because there are a number of Applications which will turn your normal Smartphone to a multi-purposeful gadget such as apps for sending sms, apps for editing videos, apps for office work. The label Smartphone’s bears its actual value only when it has proper apps in it to boost smartness. We recently published an article on Samsung Galaxy S4 about its market changer features. Such Smartphones can change the way you live, but definitely you need these productive applications. But when it comes to the side of users, the numerous numbers of Apps are quite confusing!

  1. Thank you for posting on all of these apps, Abhijith. I want to check out SplashTop 2, and Zedge, but I will wait until I get home from my shift later tonight. I think you’re missing one of the best apps out there. I have DISH Anywhere on my phone, and I use it to stream live TV and recordings from my home DVR. I’m a big baseball fan, and it’s a great way for me to watch live games, even if I’m not home.

  2. Hemant Jain says:

  3. Great List, thanks for putting it together. Swype is my favorite, but Juice Defender is moving up my list thanks to my increasing reliance on widgets, which results in greater power consumption.
