Top Apps for Android (Messengers)


Messengers are apps that you got to have in your Android device.Be it for sending IM or sending pictures,files and even calling .So here is a list for top messengers for Android.

1.Whatsapp

Image

You ought to have heard this name.It is one of the best messengers present out there.Messages, pictures and audios are sent in a jiffy and the best part of it, it is cross platform supporting ios, Android, Symbian,Windows and Blackberry devices and that’s what earns it the title of one of the best IM app because more the platforms supported, more friends you find.It’s major disadvantage is that it is not completely free and after a year you have got top buy it but it costs you only 1$ to do so.So what are you waiting for? Get it now from here and make your symbian and blackberry friends download it as well.

2.Nimbuzz messenger

Image
It gives you the luxury of connecting your Facebook, gmail and other accounts along with your Nimbuzz account .It also allows you to make calls like you do in Skype and calls are free if you do so to another Nimbuzz user who is in your contact list.It is also cross platform but the only disadvantage is that messages are not sent as quick as they are in Whatsapp.Download it now here.

3.IM plus pro

Image

One if the better apps out there for Facebook gmail, Yahoo,My Space , Linked IN and other chat accounts .The interface is simple and easy to use.Messages are sent quickly and the best feature is that it has a push mode feature that keeps it running in background,saves your battery and still displays incoming messages and keeps you online.It’s major disadvantage is the fact that it is not free.To download it go here.

4.E buddy

Image

One of the first IM apps and it is still as good as ever.Providing chats for almost all accounts, it is easy to use.It is completely free and works fine.But its disadvantage is that it its not as good looking as other IM clients and it is now receiving stiff competition from the newer and better apps.But still if you are one of those who believes that OLD IS GOLD ,you can download it here.

5.Skype

Image

How can you forget Skype when it comes to IM.The PC IM and web calling giant is now available on  Android  and is tasting the same success here.Messages are sent quickly along with pics and other stuffs.Video calling works great  over wifi and 3G and the interface is similar to the PC version.If you are a constant user and have a lot of contacts in skype then this is a must have for your android device and if you have not downloaded it till now you are truly missing out on an awesome IM app.Its main disadvantage is that it is not much of a use if you don’t have a good front camera because there are better audio and image messaging apps than this and it takes a lot of memory and space too.Download it right away here.

While all others are free , IM + pro costs you some money. So , to get it for free go here.Enjoy 🙂

Top Apps for Android (Browsers)


Hey Androidians !!

The apps at hand are something that are very common and are needed in everyday life.We are talking about Web browsers and here is my list of some of the top browsers for Android.

1.Opera mini

Image
The most common name when it comes to mobile browsers.One of the oldest and most reputable browser of recent times.It is ideal for daily use as the pages load very quickly and it is very smooth indeed.The interface is simple to use and features such as opera link make it even better.So, hurry up and get it now from google play.

2.UC browser

Image

So if you are one of those who uses his mobile as a «downloading machine» then this is just the kind of browser for you.It gives you great downloading speeds.Much more than any other browser out there.But the major drawback is that its browsing smoothness and appearance is not that good enough.So just like i stated before if you need a browser for downloading files then is the perfect browser for you.Download it right away from the link.

3.Dolphin Browser HD

Image

As the name suggests its high definition! So if you have a high priced Android device with good graphics then you ought to have this.Another major feature of it being the gesture support.The gesture support includes gestures for everything.From new tab to previous page.But its major disadvantage is that if have a budget Android phone it will look really dull and even slow down your system.Even then its a must have for you of have got a phone on which you spent big bucks.Download it here.

So get going now and download your favorite browser from the three listed above and try them out but as always you are free to explore more and more and more.Happy browsing folks !!!

It is one of the best out there.

Why?

Cause its got everything you need.From themes to widgets, from lockers to notifications and the best part of them all ITS FREE!!
Hundreds and thousands of awesome themes are available which just give your phone a completely new look altogether . Widgets that help you in all your daily uses be it Facebook widget, the calendar widget or the task manager .It has also got gesture support , some really cool animations and docks.

2.ADW launcher ex

So you need something fast, something that has all the features but doesn’t slow down your budget Android phone.Then this is what you are looking for.The speed and efficiency of this launcher is best proved by the fact that custom ROMs like cyanogen mod use this as their default launcher.But one of the major cons is that it is not free and has a bit less customization as compared to go launcher.But in spite of this its a must use.Download it from the link below :

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.adwfreak.launcher&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsIm9yZy5hZHdmcmVhay5sYXVuY2hlciJd

3.Nova launcher prime

Image

If You have a high priced Android device running on ice cream sandwich then you might want to consider this launcher.It has been made exclusively for ics running devices and mark my words it is indeed very good.It has a load of features and works smoothly.The major cons are that it works only in ics and that it is not free.But still if you have a high performance device this is the real deal.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.teslacoilsw.launcher.prime&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS50ZXNsYWNvaWxzdy5sYXVuY2hlci5wcmltZSJd

So these are my top 3 launchers and these would truly redefine your Android device.You absolutely need to have one of these and i hope this blog would help you to make the right choice.But still in this ever growing world of Android apps you have all the freedom in the world to explore more and to play more with your ANDROID.

P.S { IMPORTANT }
