Update: Read our updated guide here.
Earlier: Till now, we have done two posts on various applications that would be of use to specifically Indians users, but never found substantially good applications. Either the application were a RSS bundle or just random.
Finally we have found applications that can be categorized worthy of at least a try and come from good/official developers, which makes them less bug-prone and workable on most of the Android smartphones.
But, still we are disappointed; there is very little effort from Indian developers to create good Android applications.
