  • Counting stars on your phone

    If you've ever wanted to view stars, constellations, and planets of the night sky without ever having to go outside then look no further than Star Chart. It's a location (GPS) based application which helps to view all that is available in space. So from whichever viewing angle you see your phone from, the application will automatically show the stars or planets in that direction.

  • Be your own band

    Have a knack for vocal harmonies, but don't have the technical prowess to put together and edit a cappella videos? Or perhaps you know how to play multiple instruments and want to show off your musical talent on social media? If it's either of the aforementioned situations, you're going to love the Acapella Maker.

  • Don't let your phone distract you

    If you are the kind of person who is usually caught fiddling with a smart phone like you have nothing else to do in this world, then this is the game for you. It does absolutely nothing.

  • Streamlined Note-taking

    Managing physical notes is tough at times as there are many chances of losing them or not being able to access them immediately when necessary. If you're someone who finds it difficult to keep track of notes, then Evernote is for you.

  • A Monochromatic Puzzle Game

    Good puzzle games are an absolute blessing and “yellow” is an app which delivers such a blessing quite beautifully.

  • Are you curious?

    If you are someone who is curious to know about all the random things going on around you, Curiosity is just the app for you. Do you want to know which photos won the science photography competition in 2018? Or perhaps, you want to read up on how origami is revolutionising the world of electronics. Curiosity has you covered.

    Tired of seeing your guitarist friends show off their guitar tuning apps? Are you new at this musical instrument business and don't know how to tune your four-string hipster magnet?

  • Run for your life

    “Zombies, Run!” is a rather dramatic shift to a regular running app, with engaging zombie apocalypse based storylines. It's basically designed to make running more motivating since the thrilling missions are engrossing and help a user run accordingly.

  • Relaxing sounds for every mood

    Imagine yourself lying on the beach, listening to the gentle lapping of the waves. Or perhaps, you light a campfire on a cold winter night in the forest listening to the owls hooting over the crackle of burning

  • Set. Follow. Achieve.

    At the beginning of each year, I see people around me setting goals like “Will fight two tigers with bare hands” and it makes me feel bad about making certain life choices (i.e. keeping them around me).

  • Team building made easy

    Unless you're a really lucky person, you probably had to work on a group project at some point in your life.

  • Lifting strong

    StrongLifts 5x5 is possibly one of the best fitness apps out there. It's not only a pseudo-training journal, but also a built in long term training programme that guides you through your training sessions like a personal trainer.

    If you've ever found yourself sneaking into your phone to check how many reactions you got on your Facebook post when you are

  • The High Intensity Interval Training Buddy

    High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a difficult thing to do. To work your muscles so vigorously within such a short time frame is both admirable if you manage to pull it off, and extremely tiresome. But you know what's even more

  • Professional-grade editing in your pocket

    If you're like me, then you prefer a comparatively nuanced approach to photo-editing as opposed to cranking up the HDR slider on other photo-editing apps. Adobe Lightroom CC for mobile is the perfect companion to truly bring out the best in your photos.

  • Secret Photo Stash

    Everyone probably has photos they want to hide. It could be pictures of your crush or that one obscure and creepy meme that you found funny but if anyone else were to see it, it's solid evidence to throw you in jail.

  • The End of the World A Story

    Not if you're recovering from an emotionally taxing break-up or from a very rough patch in your relationship.

  • World's Most Annoying Alarm

    Do you have trouble waking up in the morning? Are YOU tired of being late for school? Work? Life? Then stop reading this and download “Alarmy”.

  • An infinite number of games

    You've got two choices at hand. Choice number one is to go on the app store and spend hours and hours looking for games, painstakingly waiting for them to download (especially if you've got slow internet), trying them out and then sighing in possible frustration when you realise this isn't really that fun. Choice number two is to download “Bored Button”, an app with a possibly infinite number of arcade games, for free.

  • Colourful 2D Racing

    Let me just first mention that I have a strong dislike for repetitive games where your only goal is to beat your own high score. However, it's with games like “Data Wing” that I make an exception.

  • The Audio Alternative

    Finding a genuinely good free music player is annoyingly difficult for music aficionados. This is where JetAudio comes to the rescue.

    If you're someone like me who loves RPGs and the whole levelling up, skill point reward system, Habitica might be a good addition to your productivity apps list.

  • Doodle Army 2 Mini Militia

    Local multiplayer games on phones are a rare sighting. Only a handful of games can advertise such a feature and almost none have hit

  • Ludo STAR

    If there is one board game that every Bangladeshi kid grows up with, it has to be the legendary “Ludo”. It is super cheap, easily available in even the smallest grocery stores and immense fun for all ages.
