1. Temple Run
Super addictive, simple and must have game. It’s too easy to play, but too hard to score. Run from demon monkeys, collect coins, buy power-ups, unlock new characters, and make your best score.
2. Fruit Ninja Free
Show your Ninja skills… by cutting fruits in slices to make a high score. Compete with your friends, open-feint integrated, and play online (only in paid version). Different game modes like, Classic, Zen and Arcade.
3. Angry Birds Space
Most popular game on mobile platform, with many versions like Angry Birds Classic, Seasons, Rio, etc. Space is the latest version by Rovio, which has received more than 50 million downloads and many thousands 5-star reviews.
4. Dead Trigger
Meet the zombies, and kill them. Huge size game with great effects, even better on Tegra 3 devices. It has been downloaded more than a million times and received pretty good rating so far.
Another shooting game, with nice graphics. And it’s easier to play on small screen devices, as compared to other shooting games, because they occupy half of the screen for aim and shoot. Compatible with most of the low-end devices too.
6. Bad Piggies
Very new and awesome game by Rovio. No, there are no Angry birds in it – just pigs. It’s a game from the point of view of pigs. Personally, I think it’s better than Angry Birds. You can build ‘something’ (I won’t call it vehicles) using your creativity and have fun! The pigs are cute and the music is nice.
Battery Saving Apps
1. Easy Battery Saver
Highest rated battery saving app, with millions of downloads. The problem with Android phones is, they eat a lot of battery. This app helps you manage it, and increase battery backup considerably.
2. GreenPower Free Battery Saver
It’s compatible with Android v2.2+ and handles the common power-eating functions like, WiFi, 3G/4G, Bluetooth, etc. You can just install and forget it, it’ll work. But it’s recommended to configure it as per your needs to make the most out of it.
Probably the most popular battery management app in Play Store. The UI is great and simple to use. Although the free version has everything an average user needs, but you can always upgrade to premium version and get access to more features.

The best application for clicking great pics, even if your camera isn’t that good. It has many effects and features too. Different shooting modes like, image stabilizer, burst shoot, etc. makes your camera’s photo capturing even better and blur-free.
It’s an image sharing app, insanely popular and recently bought by Facebook for a billion dollars. There are no extensive and complex editing options. It provides just what you want. Follow other people, other people follow you, view their photo streams, and do a lot more stuff.
3. Adobe Photoshop Express
A light-weight Photoshop for Android phones. It has almost every tool you need to make a picture look gorgeous. You can share the photos easily and access them anywhere from photoshop.com.
