Mobile has become more than just a device to call and message. It has become a means of being continuously in touch with friends and family through social media like Facebook and WhatsApp. It’s sharing every moment of life as it comes by through Instagram Photo sharing and making personal opinion public through Twitter. It is searching jobs through LinkedIn. It is living life on the fly. Mobile and the Internet have become like the bread and butter of people’s life, something that they can’t live without. Checking mobile update is the last and the first thing people do these days.
Mobile has also become a source of entertainment like never before. Recently, I started watching the second season of a soap watch specially released only on a particular mobile app and not on TV. And it is getting a great response because people prefer it that way these days. They prefer doing a lot of things, including entertainment on the move. During long commuting hours and waiting period in queues, people wish to keep on doing something to keep themselves occupied. Now if you have two-three hours of time to kill, supposing on airport or train with no one to talk to, what do you do? Why not watch a movie is the first idea that comes to mind!
So, what all apps are available in the market and which the best one for you is, let’s find out.
