What are popular android entertainment apps used by young individuals or students nowadays? This article enumerates four android apps that young individuals or students use especially during the pandemic due to SARS-COV2 that causes COVID-19.
Many students and young individuals are influenced and have been attracted by some popular entertaining apps and mobile games to elude the boringness and stressful days of the students.
Four Popular Android Entertainment Apps
There are hundreds of android entertainment apps available at Google Play. But some become more popular than the others for features that young individuals or students like. I list four of them here.
Four of these popular android entertainment apps are Tiktok, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB), Call of Duty Mobile (CODM), and PlayerUnknown’s Battleground (PUBG).
Tiktok is a short form, a video-sharing app that allows the users to create and share 15-60 second videos on any topic: dance, sing, arts, among others that young individuals or students are interested in. The popular android entertainment app often features music in the background. The video can be sped up, slowed down, or edited with a filter. Users can also add their sound on top of the background music.
Mobile Legends: Bang Bang
Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Bang is a mobile multiplayer online battle arena developed and published by Moonton. Two teams fight to reach and destroy the enemy’s base while at the same time defending their base against their enemies.
Player Unknown’s Battleground (PUBG) is a battle royale game developed and published by PUBG Corporation. In the game, up to one hundred players parachute onto an island and scavenge for weapons and equipment to kill others while avoiding getting killed themselves. The available safe area of the game’s map decreases in size over time, directing surviving players into tighter areas to force encounters. The last player or team standing wins the round (Wikipedia).
Call of Duty Mobile
Call of Duty Mobile (CODM) is a free-to-play shooter video game developed by TIMI studios and published by Activision for Android and IOS. It is also similar to PUBG.
The popular android entertainment app started in 2003. Initially, the game focused on World War II as its setting. Over time, stages covered scenarios during the middle of the Cold War and futuristic worlds. Eventually, the android game’s setting expanded to outer space.
These are just examples of popular android entertainment apps that seek people’s attention, especially young individuals and students who would like to take a break from their schoolwork and enjoy playing games.
The Catch of Playing Popular Android Entertainment Apps
However, will these popular applications and mobile games have a good effect on the students? Will these android apps help the students to elude stress and boringness?
Yes, it’s good for some students or young people who take it only as entertainment and use them as fun and pastime, especially when they want to enjoy their free time to relieve their negative thoughts. But, it will never be suitable for someone who takes it seriously to the point that these mobile android applications consume all their time. They tend to forget other things they should do as they give their full attention to these apps. This tendency among young individuals or students is especially true in mobile games, knowing that more students are getting addicted to mobile games to such disturbing levels.
Nevertheless, students and young individuals should know the limit of using these popular android entertainment apps because they wouldn’t know its harmful effect of being addicted to them. This is more so, especially that we are in the new normal ways of learning, online learning, and modular learning during the pandemic caused by COVID-19. In this case, are the students responsible enough for their time of doing their teacher’s assigned activities?
Useful Reminders to Students
Although the above android apps focused on online gaming and sharing funny ideas are entertainment that can help you relieve stress as a student, especially as a person, let us be reminded that online games and other pleasant applications we used are not always necessary for us. We can use these android apps partnered with a limitation; without an addiction.
Also, we should always keep in touch with the people around us. Do not forget to give the time and effort not just in the android applications but also in communicating with our friends and families because that’s the real thing that can help us to lessen the stress we are experiencing.
Let us all be reminded that online games and other pleasant applications are not always necessary for us.
As a student or young individual, let’s don’t forget that we all have responsibilities and we should give our time to important things and let’s all be productive always.
