15 must have apps

Android touched 1 billion activations, last month. This made android the most used operating system for Smartphones on the planet, in comparison to iOS or Windows phone. Android positioned itself not only with its premium applications being free, but also on the variety of applications that beats App Store and Windows Marketplace by a good margin now.

But due to this abundance of choices, which was supposed to provide the user with options, choosing the best apps are almost close to impossible. A good apps’ definition hence is reduced to the ones that stay for more than two month on your smartphone.
