The launch of tablets has ushered in a new era in the world of mobile computing. The last decade saw mobile phones getting redefined as Apple and Google's Android launched smartphones that can perform most activities one expect from a computer. Just as experts were debating whether smartphones could possibly replace personal computers and laptops, the technology market witnessed the launch of a larger mobile device, known as tablet PC. Although Apple's iPad is a pioneer in the tablet domain, Android is slowly gaining momentum, largely due to its huge collection of apps, and its adaptation of free and open source philosophy. Here, we take a look at the top four Android apps that works even with a cheap tablet PC.
a. Flipboard: The immensely popular feed reader provides an intuitive display that looks and feels like a magazine. The app is designed specifically for tablets, and the large screen is a perfect fit for the type of content it provides. Flipboard lets you view content from your favorite online sources in the form of a magazine. Moreover, you can also subscribe to magazines put together by other users. Similarly, if you feel that your personal magazine is worth a share, it can be published online for other readers to enjoy.
b. Google Hangouts: Google has been betting big on its social networking platform, Google+. Hangouts is an integral part of the Google+ system as it merges all of Google's messaging too. This app allows you to text chat with your online Galkalk friends, and effortlessly switch to a video chat if you feel like. The superior HD quality of the video chats is something that makes it stand apart from the other apps.
c. Instagram: The photography-themed social networking website has gained prominence in the World Wide Web for its awesome functionalities. Instagram provides several image editing features to enhance or stylize your photos and then share it with your friends through several social networking sites. Although it is now a Facebook service, the originality of the app is intact, which makes it a great app for your tablet.
d. Skype: This app lets you make voice free and video calls through VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). This is a must-have app for your new android tablet, as Skype fits perfectly for the tablet's large screen and a front-facing camera.
