Unique and bizarre apps have always existed, even way back in 2008 when both the App Store and Google Play first launched. From popping virtual pimples to unrolling digital toilet roll, smartphone users have certainly seen (and probably downloaded) their fair share of weird apps in the past ten years.

Think you've seen it all? There are still plenty of odd apps out there waiting for you to hit download. Take a look at our pick of the tops apps that will make you say: "I can't believe there's an app for that!"

Apps To Beat The Boredom

Ever taken a photo, but felt that it's lacking in cats? Well, CatPaint is the answer to all your problems. If you're willing to part with 99p, you can choose from a huge range of cat images (some with lasers shooting out of their eyes) to add to your favourite snaps.

Still bored? Try Don't Tap the Glass. An Android exclusive, you'll be presented with a virtual fish tank with a rather angry fish housed inside. Apparently, he likes peace and quiet. Tap the glass, and the fish is instantly annoyed, triggering an amusing reaction. That's really all this app does - possibly a bit repetitive for some, but perfect if you have the attention span of a goldfish.

Apps For The Not-Very-Chatty

Admittedly this was created for April Fool's Day in 2014, but Yo - an app that allows any smartphone user to send the word 'Yo' as a text or audio clip to friends - incredibly became a huge success. In fact, over three million people have downloaded it, prompting the creators to add extra features. Now, alongside your 'Yo', you can attach your location or an image too.

And that's all there is to it. Seriously. Naming itself the 'simplest communication tool in the world', Yo is bizarrely basic. It has however, inspired the creation of many similar apps - including a Game of Thrones themed app that sends out the name 'Hodor'.

Apps That Are Surprisingly Useful

Weird yet wonderful apps? Take Kiwake Alarm Clock. If you're prone to hitting the snooze button, and simply can't get out of bed in the morning, this app is the key to becoming an early bird. How? It simply leaves you with no choice but to wake up.

With no snooze button available, Kiwake forces you to take three distinct steps to turn off the alarm, waking up both the body and mind. As the alarm goes off, you're required to take a photo of an object that's far away from your bed (chosen by you the night before). We suggest something in the bathroom to make it easier to get into the shower, or even the coffee machine itself. Next? Wake up your brain. To complete this step, you need to solve a quick puzzle or play a short game. The final step? Check your to-do list for the day. After all that, you won't want to go back to sleep.

For some, drinking water might be easy. But if you do really struggle, Daily Water can help - you can set targets, track your progress, set reminders and more. It's a fairly basic app overall, but one that can be life-changing if you're motivated by working towards goals, trying to ditch fizzy drinks or need to remind yourself to stay hydrated during a busy day at work. And if you need to pass the time on your way to the office, take a look at the best podcasts to improve your daily commute.

Ever thought of scaring yourself senseless to get fit? Well Zombies, Run! will do just that. Whether you're indoors or outdoors, just press play on one of 200 missions and get ready to workout to a terrifying soundtrack. When zombies are approaching, you'll hear them - and you better speed up unless you want to be caught.

It sounds crazy, but with one million downloads and thousands of positive testimonials, it seems that this weird app really does provide runners with the motivation they need to carry on.

3.     The sender will see the following screen.

4.     Next: You will see the payment feature live

5.     Follow the steps (verify your number  / select your bank) and you are all set.

WhatsApp Payment invite Screen

 

This is a smart move by WhatsApp – this will go viral and instead of rolling out by default for everyone, they are bringing in the very network effect to the product.

 

 

 

In the past three years, 17,000 rich people (dollar millionaires, those who have more than 6.5 crore in wealth) have left India. South Africa-based market research agency New World Wealth publishes an annual report, according to which 7,000 super rich people in 2017, 6,000 in 2016, and 4,000 in 2015 left India and established domicile abroad.

Migration is not a new concept. It has existed since the dawn of time. Wealth and people have always been in constant flow. But any trend needs to be viewed in reference to place, time and existing situations.

  

This report does not mention the migration rate of people who are not dollar millionaires.

The issue has been discussed constantly for the past few years in the world of business, tax and tourism. The numbers are believed to be in the millions. According to the data that is available, at least 2-3 lakh people have settled abroad.

Others say the number is closer to 4-5 lakh people. The government does not tell us just how many people each year decide to move out of India and not remain taxpayers in the country; or how many have renounced their passport for another citizenship; or how many have become resident taxpayers in other countries.

Only rough estimates can be made from the publicly available information.

Why Have Rich Indians Left?

In times like these, when for the past three years global markets have slowed down, why is it that instead of searching for opportunities in India, people have still chosen to go abroad? One answer is that there is nothing unusual in this.

Wherever there is an opportunity to make a living, people get there. Another answer would be to save on tax, to get away without paying any – generally people who are not very honest and looking to run away.

There is also a third answer – the conditions here are not very conducive for doing business. Doing business here is not just difficult, it can be downright torturous. Believing that all those who have moved abroad have done so to save on tax and get away from investigative agencies is deceiving oneself.

The people who have gone abroad have done so after getting tired of a long wait.

The global recession from 2008 to 2014 and the disturbances in India had made them restless. There were aspirations, but no work. Many went abroad in frustration. You will find these people easily in Dubai, Singapore and London; and there are dozens of other countries where investment, tax and residence are quite easy now. Moreover, today, travelling has become quite easy.

They are NRIs. We either believe them to be patriots or crooks – we need to resolve our dilemma. I can tell you that most people who have left in the past few years, haven’t gone happily or in fear –they have gone in despair and frustration. Many even want to return, but there is neither place nor opportunity for them.

If ease of doing business was a reality, then Indian businesses would have been setting up new projects here, not leaving the country.

Foreign investments by Indian companies reached a record high this year, this is a good thing; but the problem is that despite having capital, these companies are unable to invest in India.

These days we constantly beat the drums of nationalism. There are constant lectures on patriotism. We are also told how the entire world is in love with India, and India is the place for global investors to invest.

If all that is true, then why is it that India’s rich and super rich are adding to the ‘quit India movement’?
