Your Android can become the world’s most complex Swiss Army knife with all the millions of applications to choose from today, but what is the use of having dozens of apps on your Android if you aren’t equip with the best? Whether you are searching for practical apps or fun apps, this list will be useful if you do not have the time to sort through hundreds of listings and prefer things short and sweet.

Android 5 Lollipop

5.) Whatsapp

If you need a versatile communication app and are fond of clever puns , Whatsapp is right up your alley. This app can quickly communicate through instant messaging and audio, and it expands on the capabilities of a regular phone by also sending video and photos. Even though you have to buy a subscription to use this app, that did not stop it from growing into one of the most popular communication apps in the world. Using this app is more practical and direct than having to use social networking sites, especially for business-related communication.

4.) Uber

This application is extremely useful to have, whether for everyday use or just in case of emergencies. Uber is used to immediately contact a taxi, and you don’t need to know your current address. This is very beneficial for people who dislike the slow speed and hassle of public transportation, or people who happen to be nowhere near a bus stop, or for whatever other reason to call a taxi quick. You won’t need cash either, if you have a credit card, Google Wallet or Paypal; the cost of your ride is transferred directly to the company. Considering this app’s sheer practicality, I would call that a fare price!

3.) Facebook

If you know what Facebook.com is, it should not be surprising that the mobile app version is so widely used, and was probably invented the first chance the programmers got. With the Facebook app, you can keep in constant touch with your family and friends, even if you don’t have access to a computer, and do all the things you could do on Facebook’s regular website. This is very practical when you are on vacation, can’t afford a computer, or prefer to keep things pocket-sized. The Facebook app has an undeniable effect in defining this age as the most closely-connected generation in history.

2.) Paytm

This is an application that is starting to make even physical credit cards look slightly obsolete. It handles a variety of money transactions, including pay day deposits to your bank account, paying utility bills, and shopping online. The makers also stress how each transaction is completely secure. They also take advantage of the app’s versatility with its own online shopping system, which can be used to bargain, use discounts, and make quick refunds. It really pays to keep up with the newest technological ways to make money matters simpler!

1.) Instagram

Instagram is an insanely popular application that is used simply for taking photos in a square format, applying interesting filters and effects if desired, and instantly sharing them on any social networking site. There is no shortage of filters and editing tools either, and they are all far easier to use than complicated photo editing software. You can also take short videos, but the app is known mostly for its picture-taking function. The app does not cost anything, which may also be a contributing factor in its popularity (compared again to expensive photo editing software)!

According to Whatsapp, Whatsapp web its nothing but just simple Whatsapp client extension on your PC helping you to exchange messages directly from the PC.

For using Whatsapp Web on Pc you just need to run it on the web browser of your PC. However currently, only Google chrome is compatible with Whatsapp web. The rest of major web browsers are yet to attain Whatsapp running compatibility. Also the major platforms like iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows will be getting a newer version of Whatsapp compatible with Whatsapp web however rest of the platforms are out of luck.

For running Whatsapp on PC web browser, only few steps have to be performed.
1. Visit web.whatsapp.com
2. On the Google Chrome browser, user will have to scan QR code of desktop via Whatsapp present in your phone for verification.
3. After complete confirmation, you can surf web as well as chat on Whatsapp side by side.

However, it’s necessary for Whatsapp to release it globally on all browsers without discrimination just like the native Whatsapp is running on all platforms.

Facebook yes the Facebook that we are all aware of and a member of, it took over the social media world about six years ago and it has been the biggest thing on the internet, almost all of the online social was to be found on Facebook, people are a member of many groups on Facebook.  I was an active member of Facebook. Facebook is even the ground for advertising, as most of the people are on Facebook, so that they can stay connected all time with their friend’s family. Even various groups are there on Facebook tend you can join them as per your interest. There are about more than 1.5 Billion users on Facebook but lately it’s seen that the users are reducing or the existing users are becoming in-active. I have found that  most of my relatives have graduated from high school and have deleted their accounts and not much of their updates are found there. I hardly update my daily doings or even add new photographs on Facebook.

Facebook Dislike

Is it just me, or Facebook really is fading? There are many reasons Facebook is fading away these days, People are nowadays claiming that Facebook is a distraction and people tend to login again and again many times in a day and it has become people’s addiction.  Because of these a lot of companies have banned using Facebook pages for employees during office working hours. So because of these many brand loose their interaction with their users. When Facebook was first launched, all the users were very much  excited a to reconnect with their old school friends, college friends, co-workers etc. it had become very easy for everyone to reconnect, but as time went by they just became another contact as many are not active on Facebook. Similarly, various brands are facing the same thing as they have many hundreds of users with them, but all most of them are these days’ not active users. It’s also been noticed that not only  business groups, users are also nowadays bit upset at Facebook have now overall control on your Newsfeed like hiding the posts from the friends whom I have not been in contact from long time is not right and it’s upsetting.  Every time we log on to Facebook something or the other has changed in some or the other way, to stay In touch with all these update’s and changes on Facebook is annoying. Even Facebook fading away  might explain in part the popularity of a various new services like his  Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest. They are becoming more and more famous now-a-days among youngsters. Even apps like WhatsApp that we all are aware of has become a huge success, even app called  Line is very popular in Japan, Snap chat, We Chat are very much popular China and  even app like KakaoTalk is the most popular service in Korea because of all these new services Facebook is losing its users to some extent.

CONCLUSION: It has become universal fact, Facebook might  have lost some of its edge  at least we can see that  least it does not feel like  original to any of many of its  users, thus losing its appeal this day and down the road its slowly losing its charm and may fade away.

Windows Phone 8 is a growing operating system and is has captured quite some market share in its short duration of presence. And most of the credit for it goes to the budget smartphone running on Windows Phone 8 and that is the Nokia Lumia 520. Available at a very cheap cost and some good enough specs, the 520 has become an international hit and many people own it. Its app base is still growing and is currently the fastest growing app store ever. Being a new eco system, not many people are aware of it yet and so the current users don’t really have an idea as to which apps to install in their phone. Hence we are compiling a list of 10 apps that you must install on your Lumia 520 so that you can have a wonderful smartphone experience and also not miss Android much.

Nokia Lumia 520

1. 6tag: Instagram for windows has still not arrived and we all need Instagram to share images. So what if there is no Instagram, we have a similar app completely loaded with all the features and functions of Instagram and works seamlessly as an Instagram app. So even with a Windows Phone, you sure won’t be missing out on your Instagram action. Yay!

2. Facebook: Though Windows Phone 8 has a built in people’s hub where you can link in your social networking, still to check out on photos and videos and some more Facebook applications, you will need to actually access Facebook manually. So for that a Facebook app is now available which is exactly similar to the Android and iOS app. So now no more missing out on your favourite updates from your friends and family as well as the game requests. Happy Candy Crushing!

3. Twitter: Even though Twitter is integrated in the people’s hub, still you do need to actually access it to get the feel and experience of using Twitter. So for that the official Twitter app is something that you need for the full Twitter experience on your phone. Follow or unfollow anyone or search for your favourite pals, check their tweets, reply to them or retweet, or share your own tweets, whatever you want. Enjoy the fun of social networking wherever you go.

4. Whatsapp: This is the most used instant messenger service in the entire world with recently it was even released by Whatsapp that they have recorded over 1 billion messages exchanged in a day. This is because it is absolutely free and you can send unlimited messages, images, videos, songs, etc. though it is free for only one year and later you have to pay 55 INR per year, still considering how useful it is, you will happily accept to pay it. The best advantage of this is that, it works on the basis of your phone number and is a cross-platform app. So that means it works on almost every phone so all your friends use it and also it works seamlessly internationally as well. So using this you can also contact your friends out of the country as well for free. Hence it is being pegged as SMS killer.

5. Accuweather: This is a renowned weather app that tells you the current weather and also the forecasts pretty accurately. You can easily reply on it to provide the current temperature of your area and also how the weather forecast is going to be on an hourly basis. So you can check the app out and then plan if you need to carry an umbrella or a coat depending on the weather conditions.

6. Smartshoot: This is an amazing camera app by Nokia. It is a Nokia exclusive app; in this the app takes 5 images at a time. Then you can choose to remove the elements you want or change faces of people among the 5 images that are captured and then by that you can have the perfect group shot every single time. This is a very amazing app considering how Nokia phones have some really amazing camera.

7. Skype: This is a great app for free video calls and voice calls over the internet. Though for the Lumia 520 it won’t be of much use since it does not have a front facing camera, but voice calls are very much possible. This is pretty useful when you have a fast internet connection over Wi-Fi or 3G and do not want to spend your main account balance. So it is another great app considering Skype’s tried and tested quality levels.

8. Netflix: If you love to watch some great movies on the move then you will love this app. In this app you can select any movie that you want to watch for free from a huge selection available in their database. All you need is an internet connection and you can stream high definition movies right onto your device. There are some other movies too which are paid, but surely the free movies can too work just fine for you. You also get the option of subtitles and many more features as well.

9. Transfer My Data: This app is actually more useful than people give it credit for. For instance when you buy a new Lumia, then with this app you can connect to your previous device via Bluetooth and get all your precious data like contacts and messages into your new phone easily in no time. Also you can use this app to transfer your content into your phone from SD cards as well.

10. Zomato: This app is like your local scout who tells you everything about that is in and around your area. So if you happen to be in an unknown location and suddenly your stomach starts rumbling, then you can use this app and search for places to eat and also check out which is the best, what it offers, what are its rating, the cost and also the menu as well. You can also share your review on experience of the place on the app for others to refer to.
We checked out 10 apps that you must install on your Lumia 520. Do note that Lumia 520 is the most basic Windows phone with the smallest specs being an entry level device. Hence all the apps mentioned above will also run on all the other midrange and top range Lumia devices as well and also other Windows phones. Being a new OS, Windows Phone 8 is developing gradually and let us hope that it does soon so that we can have another great option to Android to have a versatile smartphone experience.
