Keep helps you when you want to remember important pointers. You can save them in your phone, and can sync and view them on laptops or any other device you use. This is the note taking service by Google, which comes in handy everywhere you go. For example, you might want to take down points on what you wish to purchase, or maybe what work you have to do once you reach office.



Feeling hungry? Don’t worry. Zomato is one of the best Indian apps when you are looking for satisfying your hunger. Using this app, you can order food online from any shop near you. You can even check the ratings and reviews of any restaurant you like or want to try.

Most of the people face the hassle of getting their documents scanned. Even when you are not working in any such company, in day to day lives as well, you need lot of paperwork. And in such cases, CamScanner comes handy.

You can scan any document you like and share with anybody anywhere on the go. It takes only few seconds as compared to when you have to go to actual shop to get the document scanned. The features like smart crop and colour variations are an added advantage of this application.


A lot of companies are releasing their apps for travel. But tried and tested, MakeMyTrip offers the best prices for every travel related query you have. Everything is crystal clear on the front page itself. There are no hidden charges, and you can book flight tickets, hotels, buses, cabs, and much more through this single app.



This list is definitely not the holistic list. There are various other segments like food and entertainment, where you can install various apps. Even for categories like shopping and social media platforms, we have included one application each. You can download several others according to your needs.

Apart from these, there are millions of games available on the app store that you can play for free. We did not include any game in the above list, since everybody has a totally different taste.
