In the last 1 year or so, the sales of Android Smartphone’s have seen a sudden boom, but, for the right reasons. The most important reason is the drastic increase in productivity that the user experiences after installing a couple of free applications from the Android’s official App Marketplace.
These productivity increasing applications help manage time in a much better way which in turn results in more efficiency.
