Top-20 Must Have Android Apps for Pakistan

There are millions of apps available on the Google Play Store. Many apps are famous worldwide but people of every country have their specific needs of applications. I am also using Android Phone for the last two years and have searched and tried many Pakistan oriented applications; some were average, some were good and some were just a waste of time and memory. I personally found the following Android applications very useful and helpful for Pakistanis.
