We’ve got a tradition in India where a newbie has to give an “intro” to his peers and colleagues at a new school or workplace, and answer any question as truthfully as possible. And since I’ve just joined the Phandroid team as a weekend blogger, I thought it’s only fair that I bring it here.

So, here I go. I’m a Computer Science undergrad student in India and spend quite a bit of my time developing Android apps and websites (though my primary interest is in UI design).

 Phone: T-Mobile myTouch 4G running CM7

Tablet: Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Favorite Apps:

  1. Pulse Reader: A must for anyone who reads a ton of blogs. I love the UI, and the effort that they’re putting into Pulse Me such as synchronizing sources across devices and the desktop browser extension makes it stand out.
  2. Any.Do: I don’t make many to-do lists, so I can’t be certain that this is the best option for a power-user. What made me chose this is an excellent UI  and a good widget. Plus the fact it was Android-first.
  3. AirDroid: This app is always on in the background when I’m working on my PC, primarily for sending and receiving texts from my browser and for transferring files to my phone.

Favorite Games:

  1. Great Little War Game: An extremely addictive strategy game. The only blemish is how much battery it seems to consume.
  2. Homerun Battle HD: I really enjoy the online gameplay, though I don’t spend too much time on it. Add “rb6teen” to your rivals list if you’d like to take me on.

The Geekiest Moment of my life:

When I bumped into Matias Duarte, Android’s Director of User Experience, at a TechCrunch party during my trip to the Bay Area last July.

As for you’re questions, just put them below in the comments, and I’ll try to reply to each over the weekend. You can also follow me on Google+ here.
