Your Life At Random With SerendApp for Android
How structured is your life? Do you get to a point during your day that you are string blankly at your Android device without knowing what to do with it? XDA member masterdevx developed SerendApp, which in essence is a random-action app. The whole concept of the app is that it helps you discover things that you were not thinking of, much like serendipity. Depending on the general category that you choose, the app will launch websites, videos, suggestions of searches, apps, games, or anything in your device… at random. This is particularly good when you are heading back home and you have a long trip ahead of you. More often than not, you will not know what to do with your device (assuming you are not driving, that is), this app will inspire you and show you what you were thinking of doing (or not).
Please take this app for a spin and leave some feedback if you discovered anything new with it.
