An Android App a day - 12. Super Stickman Golf

Hi Guys,

This is one of the most amazing game that you can play on your android phone with minimalistic hamper on your battery. The ball needs to paced through different types of golf courses that changes with every level. The number of levels are unlimited as it seems to me and there is a need to be sure what projectile and what force that needs to be required to reach the goal.

An Android App a day - 11. Whatsapp Messenger

Hi Guys,

No matter how many Messanger apps comes in the market, this one created a revolution way back earlier and remains the most popular one today. We shifted to WeChat for a week but the problem of battery drainage compelled us to be active on Whatsapp again across all types of mobiles and OS we were using. 


Whatsapp has been a great messenger service since it's launch and with various new updates it is far more better than others. More information can be found out on http://twitter.com/WhatsApp

With more and more features being introduced in this social app, we stay connected and together. Now with Facebook buying Whatsapp there will be a hell lot of features as both the social media apps integrate in the times to come. 

App Rating - 4.5/5

Broken Glass

Hi Guys,

Recently one of the glass window in my home was totally broken and there was some amazing art that was created in it automatically. Have a look - 


It's the interlinking of the broken glass that was giving a sound as it spread from the center point to the ends. The different shapes and sizes of the broken glass was looking like some rich diamond pieces. The whole thing of broken glass did really put a dent on my purse but gave me a learning too that once broken it can't be mended. Let's apply the same principle to our relationships and life! 

Cheers!!!

Always Smile

Hi Guys,

Just saw this amazingly good poster as a kind remembrance of what Smile is for all of us. This was posted on the door bell of someone in the building where one of my cousin lives. I immediately felt that I should make use of my HTC One Ultrapixel camera and take a shot to share with all of you.


Smile is the best thing that can bring in a lot of change to our attitude and personality. So feel free to Smile as and when you can!

Cheers! :-)

Some days ago before the launch of Terrano, Nissan held contests on Twitter to promote their latest launch of SUV.

An Android App a day - 8. WeChat

Hi Guys,

Connecting with friends is what we all wants to...these new applications have really made us online in touch with all our friends on the go.

An Android App a day - 7. Duolingo

Hi Guys,

Duolingo : Learn Languages Free is an app which gives you access to learn Spanish, Italian, French, German and many other languages for free of cost. The lessons starts from basics and has integrated tests built in the app. Once you clear the tests then only the app allows you to go for next level of learning. Pronunciations as well as spoken aspects are taken care of in this app. I have tried many apps but this is the most useful and powerful app to learn new language. 


In case, you are sincere about learning a new language this is the right app for your smartphone. I have been using it since many weeks and learning Spanish. I hope that I am sincere enough to reach a benchmark point soon.

Cheers!!!

An Android App a day - 6. MXPlayer

Hi Guys, 

MX Player is one of the most advanced movie file format player on your Android smartphones. It has much more features that any other movie player. It has this pinch to zoom feature which can enlarge your overall movie experience to see the details. You can swipe your fingers and many a features will be taken care of like voice, seek, subtitle seek, brightness etc. 


I have been in love with QQ Player but then I tried using this player and really loved some of the features. Though I installed both of them on my smartphone HTC One as sometimes, the things look great in one or the other player. But the choice is completely yours, both the players are equally capable and if you happy with QQ then continue using it and if you feel to change then MX player is one of the best one available in the Google Play market.

An Android App a day - 4. QQPlayer

Hi Guys,

What made me fall in love with the android smartphones was the ability to play any file format you simply drag and drop into your phone or sd card memory. QQPlayer was one of the many movie players I tried until I finally settled for this one a long time ago. QQPlayer has got good features in it's kitty. Brightness and audio controls can be done with simple swipe of a finger. Refreshing your playlist enables it to search for all the locations for any video's recently added.


QQPlayer plays everything from AVI to MKV. It has really given me freedom to play all the movies/serials on my mobile and carry them to see whenever I am free or traveling. There is also a lock folder where you can hide videos that you don't want anyone to see without providing a password.

Overall, it's a great software and a must for every android smartphone.

An Android App a day - 3. ZenHabits

Hi Guys,

I don't want to put the same apps which all the websites are flooded with because you all know them and all of them must have installed the same on your smartphones like Kindle and other apps. 

Zen Habits is one app if you love reading small blog posts on Meditation, living and walking with mindfulness, and other life inspiring articles.This is one of the blog I have been following since many years and this app has really helped me carry all the articles offline and I can read them whenever I feel like. 


The writer of the posts - Leo Babauta has really inspired me to live the life moment by moment. I really love to read everything what he writes and follow the same. 

This is really a great app as all the posts if you click twice will go into Already completed reading mode and all other remains in unread mode. This helps you to see which ones are still pending to be read. 

App Rating - 4.5/5

An Android App a day - 2. Tweetcaster for Twitter

Hi Guys,

If you are very active on twitter and maintains more than one account this app is the most useful one. I found this one very easy to operate with a lot of features.You can copy someone else tweets when participating in some quiz based questions. The hashtags and the handles will come be shown in the ribbon underneath based on the maximum used by you, so it makes it very fast to tweet in FFF types of contests.


Also, you can see the favourite tweets in another tab, also you can see the tweets people have done for that handle and a lot more trends and popular hashtags are shown too. You can zip people, DM people, add a list, search people, see nearby tweeples etc. 

This app is really fast but the only thing, I am unable to see is the snaps shared by people on their timelines. There is not a direct way to see them, if something is there, I have not been able to find the same till now.Also, if you refresh it multiple times, it puts you in a kind of refresh jail which is not the case with Twitter official app. I hope if this is taken care of, this app has way to go.

But overall, I love this app and totally been using the same since Feb 2013 when I had to operate 4-5 twitter accounts as with using this app you can tweet from all your accounts with same content in a single tweet and post the same on facebook also. I have been able to win many twitter contests using this app so I am thankful to the makers of this app a lot. 

I would definitely recommend people to use it and see the same for yourself.

The Dewarists - Music Album

Hi Guys,

This is one of the editions of The Dewarists music CD's.



The Dewarists is a CD full of fusion music for those who wants to listen to something different. Although, I have not listened to a lot of fusion music but this CD gave me a opening to research on it further and listen to all the songs of MTV Coke Studion Season 1 and 2. I visited the youtube.com and listened to some of the amazing songs. 
 Meanwhile, Coke Studio3 is going to be started soon on MTV. Really loved the first episode by the Maestro A. R. Rehman. Cheers!!!

An Android App a day - 1. MobisleNotes

Hi Guys,

Just a random thought came to my mind as I have been using Android mobile since it was first launched by Google in their G1 mobile. I had the luxury to use that mobile and afterwards used Nexus One too till my recent purchase of HTC One. I thought of sharing the best apps I loved them since I always download, try and then delete the apps if not liked them. 

The top of the list contains the MobisleNotes - is a kind of Notepad, TO DO app which gives checklist kind of view. You can get this app from Google play store - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=mobisle.mobisleNotesADC&hl=en

I loved the app a lot because of it's easy design and integration with all the android apps using your email id. You do some changes on one of the android device - may be on tablet and the same will be synced with your mobile phone. This app has really helped me keep the track of all the online & twitter wins. I have used the same to set my goals and books I want to read. It helped me track my expenses too. It's easy to note down some quotes you read somewhere while traveling. 

I really love this app and will really give it a mandatory app for all android smartphone owners.

Do Right - TATA Capital

Hi All, 

Daughters are the angels in the your life because their cute smiles brings you an internal joy that no other thing in this world can. I am too blessed with an angel in my life and she is the hope and fuel of my life.

COMPASSION - My daughter has taught me innumerable things which as adults we tend to forget with time and it's the adaptibility to smile and carry on, no matter what has happened in the past. She leaves me amazed when I see her living in the moment and enjoying herself fully. She quickly adapts to the surroundings and tries to make the best of the same. I still remember when I was in London and she used to live with her grandparents and my wife was working in another city. She quickly readjusted to the place of my parents and when my wife used to visit her every weekend she used to make the best out of those 2 days and one night with her mom. She understood that mom will leave soon and it took her monday/tuesday to come back to normal self but then also she enjoyed herself. It was really tough for us to adjust, but she really did cope up and built herself from there and she was just 1.5 years old.

KINDNESS - Secondly, is her quality to get whatever she wants in the way she want. She will build stories around and will try to make you agree by the way of love, smile and sometimes tears but she will be persistent enough to get the same thing done from you. She will come running to me and will ask, Papa, you love me? I will say, yes. Then she will say that Ok, please get my long forgotten toy out of the storing area as I want to play with the same. Another story, is when her mother was doing some stitching on the sewing machine and she wanted to rotate the wheel of the same, but her mother disagreed, so she ran to her grandmother. She told her that my mom is ruining your sewing machine, kindly take away your machine from her. This expression was just because her mother didn't listen to her and she couldn't rotate the sewing machine wheel.

HONESTY - The third quality is the never ending Curiosity and the ability to question the logic and reasoning to understand the world she lives in. Blessed with great listening skills, she understands everything and asks relevant question and we have to tell her the logic and reason why that is so and why is goes like this? She has build up a whole Dholakpur inside her mind and everything runs from there. She thinks Dholakpur is in Singapore and she has to visit Singapore to see if it's there or not. Till that time, she doesn't believe that it doesn't exist in the real world. Last year, her grandparents went to US and she said that she has not seen US so she wants to go with them next year. My younger brother has a dog there in states, so she said she will personally visit to see if the dog does what my brother tell him to? She will question on anything and everything under the sun and it's our responsibility to give fuel to her imagination and curiosity. She loves to eat Parle-G and asked me once what is the G in Parle-G? And as shown in the TV advt, she asked how the cloth is flowing in the air? She tried to do the same with her mother dupatta but failed till she tried it in front of air coolar installed last month. The spark in her eyes and the happiness of achieving something she wanted really created moments that my family will cherish forever.

Thanks a lot.

My Dream - My DSLR - Nikon D600

Hi Guys,

We are all fans of photographing things, nature, architecture, people and animals. Some people have reached pinnacle of success just because of a camera only. They have developed their skills in photography and a little bit of creativity on the field has given them immense sense of achievement and success. Photography is a journey and we all continue to master this skill as and when we have camera in our hands. There has been numerous camera - point & shoot, compact, bridge, DSLR DX & FX etc all around in the world. Irony is people carry their big cameras and use them on automatic mode all the time. I too have been working all my life to have a camera of my own. But due to family responsibilities and no motivation from people around me, I could not buy the DSLR camera of my choice.

Here is my choice of Nikon DSLR and I will try to have the same in this coming year -Nikon D600


I had the pleasure to use the camera on my Khajuraho trip and this one is awesome. Some of the clicks of this camera can be seen in my Khajuraho post. 



Universe, Are you listening?

More info about the camera at www.nikon.co.in Follow them on twitter & facebook
New D610 DSLR has been introduced to replace D600 but this one will really solve many of my photography needs.
