Smartphones today have become much more than just devices to send text messages or make phone calls to friends and relatives. We use our phones as extensions of ourselves and literally fall back on them when there is absolutely nothing around us to do. From playing games to listening to music to falling back looking for jobs, maybe even looking for a date on Tinder, phones today have become pretty much the hub of our world.
This hub is largely defined by the app collection that you keep and while everyday a few new hundred apps are added on board, there are always those handpick ones that we always go back to when we feel the time is ticking by a little too slowly. Here are the five apps, that at least we feel are an absolute must for you to have on your Android device.
If you like watching live cricket as well as have a thing or two for movies, then Hotstar is an app you definitely must have. A recently launched app in India, Hotstar has some of your favourite television content from the Star Network. Not just this, you can also catch your favourite soap operas from years gone by as well as watch the latest bollywood movies. You have content, not just in Hindi but also in languages like English, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi and Bengali. The best part about the app is that it is absolutely free and does not even require any sort of registration and you are good to consume the content right away.
You really must be hiding underground if you have not heard Dubsmash. The app has become bit of a phenomenon and if you love your movies or are into any sort of mimicry, you will love the app. It allows you to pick up a famous dialogue, said by the famous voice and allows you to enact it with the same voice over. You can then go ahead and share the video with your friends and family privately or directly via Social Media. You will require an Android phone that runs Android 4.1 and above to run Dubsmash.
Wynk is an app from Bharti Enterprises and our go to app when it comes to streaming music. While there are several options such as Saavn, Gaana, Rdio, Pandora that exist, it is the playlists of Wynk that have us absolutely hooked. Add to the fact that there are some really tasty offers when it comes to Airtel users for subscriptions, you really cannot go wrong with the app. Overall experience in terms of quality of playback as well as the features which includes support for Chromecast as well carrier billing. The UI and UX of the app on Android is really good too, and if you are looking for an app to play songs, you must give Wynk a shot.
If you are looking for what is the next hilarious Gif that is going viral on the internet, the trending video or that meme which would fit in perfectly when your friend annoys you on Whatsapp, then Imgur is the place to be. You can not just read and comment on the stream of what is most hilarious and entertaining on the internet, but can also upload content if there is something that you have. You can up-vote and down-vote content for your fellow Imgur users and help them discover awesome content.
While it’s all good to laugh around and have fun, it is equally important to be well informed about the world and what is happening around us. This is where CNNs news app comes into play. The application alerts you to breaking news with push alerts, allows you to read detailed reports of the same and also has videos for you to watch for a more in-depth coverage. Not just this, you can contribute to the news by uploading pictures as well as stories on the application.
Those are the five applications we feel are an absolutely must if you are looking to keep up the entertainment quotient up for you. Which apps do you use for your entertainment? Do share with us in the comments section below.
