Nevertheless, I have sunk into the deep ocean of Android apps, and gathered “TEN” prolific apps that are truly essential. One more thing, I’m not covering social media apps like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter since most of us are obliged to have these apps on our Android Smartphones. So, without further a due, let’s get straight down to the business.

If you believe that the Yelp is circumscribed only to the reviews of restaurant or bar, then you are mistaken! I personally was a little skeptical about the group-sourced reviews, but Yelp gives you way more than just a review.

Everyone has a thirst for music, right? The only difference can be the preference of thirst. Some may have hunger for classic Rock Music whereas some may fantasize over Jazz. The moral of the story remains; “we all love music”. So, have you ever been hit by the situation when a song hits in your ear, but you cannot get the gist of it? Well, it happens many times for me. Nevertheless, this is where Shazam hits a “bingo”. Shazam is a song recognition app that is solely dedicated to identifying the song you are unfamiliar with.
