10 best android apps for knowledge hunters

The world is moving too fast and it is good to have few apps installed in your mobile that keep you updated with latest trends in technology and some major things happening in different categories like politics, sports etc.

Well, I won't say it is mandatory to read every story.

1. Flipboard
Flip board helps you in segregating the news with a beautiful flip animation effect and a magazine look. Flipboard also pulls content from social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and Google+. It also get feeds from YouTube. Perhaps it is the best app of it's kind. We can search for keywords and then we can follow for later updates on that keyword.

2. Stumble upon
Do you like reading random articles on your favorite topics? Then this app is must. This app let you choose your interested topics and then it gives random links in it.

3. LinkedIn Pulse
This is very similar to flipboard, except the fact that pulse won't pull content from social networking sites and it has horizontal scrolling and vertical scrolling. Pulse has been taken by linked in recently.

4. Times of India
I had seen an advertisement of Hindu news paper saying read our new paper and stay ahead of times. But in reality, I don't like Hindu mobile app. And times of India is very good app over Hindu. TOI has beautiful interface with red theme color. It has attractive reading text font.

5. Reddit is fun
This app is mobile version of most popular link sharing website Reddit. The recent version of this got much better user interface and fixed many bugs. This is really cool app to explore trending and popular news.

6. Newshunt
The most popular news reading app in India. It takes RSS feeds from almost all Indian news paper and put them infilling you and all you need to do is swipe and read. It also added books soon recently.

7. Google Play newsstand
Google predicted the user's thirst for knowledge and awareness and included one default in its android operating system, which is play newsstand. It was neatly designed. Pretty colorful look on the top bar for each category of news. A beautiful swipe transition effect for both in category section and in articles section. Earlier Google had Google currents for latest news, it was merged to this newsstand application.

8. Issuu
If you are interested to read magazines, this app may be a good choice. It provides many free magazines in many categories. The use interface is clean and simple.

9. BBC world
One of the best news application which covers international news. The future and analysis section is very good and we can also watch headlines video if you are in a rush.

10. Umano
Lot many people are not interested to read content for long time. We do postpone articles for later reading and they are keep coming. By using this app we can listen to the articles. We can listen to them just like listening songs.

Try those apps and wrote what you feel in the comments. Or if I miss anything, write them also.

India - Democracy - Bureaucracy

India a nation with strong Democracy. There has been a well-established democracy in India. This democracy is responsible for the happy and free-living of people in India. Now you people may get a doubt, what has happened to our democracy now. And what is the reason why I’m revolving around the term repeatedly? These would be answered automatically if you go through this article. One of the reasons why India fought for the freedom is to achieve democracy and to end bureaucracy. Before Independence India was run by bureaucrats. And the apex house sitting in Britain would make laws and rules based on the feedback and reports given by the bureaucrats administering India. Due to this Indians suffered a lot and there raised the zeal for self-rule. Moreover, the reports of bureaucrats would always be favoring the interests of Britain and they never bothered about the common people. So to represent the problems faced by the common man and also to solve them we adopted democracy after Indepe…

Atal Innovation Mission - Top 30 Ideas

There is no less of innovation in the young minds of India. To encourage that innovation, AIM (Atal Innovation Mission) has been set up under the NITI Ayog wing. And Atal Tinkering Labs are spread across the country to enable the innovation in the students. After many rounds, top 30 Ideas have been listed here.

Out of these 30 best ideas, a few caught my senses strongly.
Recycling wastewater from automobile garages We often give a water service for our bike/car monthly or weekly. We tend to saw how our vehicle got a new look after servicing. But, the students of  "Jnana Prabodhini Navnagar Vidyala, Nigdi, Pune, Maharashtra" thought something else. They are interested in the wastewater which can be recycled. What an Idea sir ji!
Smart Tap Just like how there is a measurement for electricity, mobile data that we are consuming, there will be a smart tap that measures water coming through that tap. The best part is that the tap also purifies the water. This idea came from the st…

Controlled water management in India

Proper management of water is important in every country and especially in populated countries like India. It is high time that we need to measure our water usage in our homes. Putting a SMART TAP at the water tank would be a necessity in the near future.  Imagine a digital and eco-friendly village. IOT ( internet of things ) is part of their daily life. And their smart tap is used to measure the water usage in the home. And it is connected to the IOT, continuously sends some data related to water flow and quality of water etc.. The smart tap also measures the water level based on the pressure at the tap. And gives you reminders about the water filling. The village officer can analyze the water usage of each house in that village and he can give some incentives/rewards to the less average water usage. In the other post, we have discussed the Aadhaar based dustbins, giving incentives to the villagers for cleanliness. The incentive-based schemes are not the first time to the Govt. or t…
