With your new Android device in hand, you're ready to take on the mobile world. But with over 700,000 apps to choose from, finding which will work best for you can be a daunting task. That's why we've selected what we think are the best 100 and presented them here, for your perusal.
Careful readers will notice that this all looks quite familiar. That's because we've been pruning and updating this list for over a year, trying to make sure it has a little something for everyone. While our tastes and yours may be different, we think our list is a good starting point. We do our best to keep it fresh and interesting enough that even the most experienced Android user will be able to find something worthwhile.
Whoa, 10 pages? Uncool.
Paginated stories are pretty annoying, I agree. But with 100 apps, we had to break it up just to make it readable. We've even divided the article into themed sections, so you can skip over the first 50 or so if you're only interested in, say, music apps.
Hey, You Missed Something
Though we are professionals, we have yet to physically and mentally merge with the Google Play store, becoming an omnipotent being of total app knowledge. Until that glorious day, we'll rely on our own humble judgment and your feedback. If we missed something, or you have a recommendation, be sure to drop us a line in the comment section.
This App Is Stale
While 100 apps is a far more manageable slice of the enormous Google Play store, it's still a challenge to keep up to date. That's the nature of a platform as large and dynamic as Android. In order to keep these reviews fresh and accurate we'll be doing rolling updates to the list. Hopefully, the next time you read this, there'll be some new hidden gems for you to discover.
As always, tell us what your favorite Android apps are in the comments section below.
