How well do you use your smart phones. My bet is half of the time you spend your free time is on Facebook which is both addictive and expensive vis-a-vis data charges. It is none of my business to tell you how to spend your free time but I can give you alternatives to spending your free time with these quality Apps for Android and iOS devices instead of Facebook. What is more that almost all of them are free. So, if you want to use your time a bit more carefully then these Apps are just for you.
1. CamScanner :
With this app you can take photos of news papers and crop and adjust them to read at your own leisure. You can snap your notes, sync them, save them as PDFs and organise them. A sure fire way to help you in your lectures.
Download the CamScanner for iOS from Apple Store and for Android devices from Google Play and enjoy this one.
2. Goodreads :
This is one App that teaches you to derive pleasure from reading. It will be a welcome break after your school and college hours. Goodreads tells you what your friends are reading, reviews about books and has specific categories to suit your own style.

3. Nexercise :
This App is for those who are bored with sitting in front of computers, dabbling with smart phones and tablets and reading. This motivational App provides you with that little bit extra to get out and exercise. It rewards you for physical activity which can be redeemed for goodies that come along the way. And there is a leaderboard to check out how your friends are doing.

4. Meetup :
This is a social App which locates the people with similar interests as you in your area. The more you delve into the App, the more you will feel like getting out of your cubby hole and enjoying the whole world out there. There are several Meetup groups comprising of stamp collectors, canine lovers, authors, artists, photographers whom you can meet in your very own area. Further it lets you create your own Meetup group based on your own version of fun. And believe me this App is very popular in Mumbai too with several Meetup hangouts happening in Mumbai, which you will find if you google 'Meetup'
