Favorite Android Apps

    It is nearly 2015 year end with just one more month to go. I had published my previous list of favorite android apps more than an year back. This new list is longer than the previous, as my previous list was that of "Most used" apps. Following are my new favorites (not in any particular order).


    I am not a gamer, but I need some games which I play during free time when I am bored. I keep trying out different games but remove after some time. I have played Subway Surfers, Flow Free, Flow Free: Bridges, Unblock Me for a long time but finally removed them. Following is the list of games I still have.

    • Sudoku Free
    • Classic Word Solo
    • Drop
    • Flappy Bird: This game was removed by the developer due to guilt over what he considered to be its addictive nature and overuse. Since then numerous similar games have been added to Google Play Store. However, I have managed to keep the original game. My highest score is 45.


    Finally, I have installed Google Now Launcher to replace the default launcher on my mobile.

    Podcasts (Audio only) I listen to

    For past about an year, I have been listening to podcasts (audio only), during my commute between home and office. Here are some of my favorite podcasts (sorted alphabetically)

    A lady buys goods worth 200 and pays 1000 note to the shopkeeper.The shopkeeper gets the change from the neighboring shop, keeps 200 for the goods and returns 800 to the lady.After sometime the neighboring shop owner returns saying that the 1000 note is fake and takes his money back. How much loss did the first shopkeeper suffer?
