Best casual game for Android

Sims FreePlay puts players in charge of a whole town full of people. You need to tend to their basic human needs, manage relationships, build careers, and outfit a home. Over time, you can have kids, watch them grow up, and in turn guide your first Sims through old age. Though freemium elements such as premium currency and timers are employed, for a laid-back game like this where just about every measure of progress is an issue of vanity anyway, it feels well-balanced and appropriate.

Best racing game for Android: Asphalt 8

Best racing game for Android

Asphalt 8 is an over-the-top, white-knuckled racing game for Android. Power-ups litter the fantastic courses set in real-world locations, which can help you launch off ramps for amazing (and physically unlikely) stunts. Hopefully in the process you can trash some of the competition in explosively cinematic crashes. Some freemium elements are employed, such as purchasable currency and premium power-ups, but on the whole, the game is entirely playable without spending a cent.

Best sports game for Android: FIFA 14

Best sports game for Android

FIFA 14 offers all of the excitement of a live footie match to your Android device. Teams work their way through leagues, players progress, and managers upgrade their home stadium and sponsors.

The Best Android Apps


Absolutely: Go Launcher EX dominates (better than LauncherPro or adw or tw or any others). And all the scrollable widgets and many other things that say they "require" LauncherPro or ADW, for example, run just fine on Go. I also use their SMS. They just know what they are doing. Smooth. Customizable.

I'm with you on that as well...Go Launcher EX and SMS Pro are just that damn good! I was using LPP for a very long time and made the switch and haven't looked back. Now if they can get Go Launcher HD up to the EX level...which I know they will.

I started using GO SMS back on my Hero, when I missed resend (e.g. due to poor signal) and re-download MMS (e.g. being connected to Wi-Fi when the MMS comes in, and my network only allows MMS to be downloaded when connected to 3G) options in the stock SMS app.

I switched to GO Launcher EX after the stock TouchWiz launcher on my SGS2 forgot my painstaking manual app organization. I couldn't live without organized apps, so I tried a few, looking for one that could back up its config so I'd never have to do it again. GO Launcher EX does that, and I was confident about its quality after my experience with their SMS app. It hasn't let me down.

Add to make the migration easy, and I'm happy.

I uninstalled Go Launcher EX awhile ago, to make place for Nova. Never regretted it. Go L EX is slow, uses a lot of resources and the spam (even in the paid version) is annoying.

Meh...its cool. No, it is not as customizable. I like the iPhone-like bubbles Handcent has....I dont see an easy way to make GOSMS look like that.

I do use GoLauncher and I do like GoContacts(Just like the dialer part mostly).

I don't know about you, but GOSMS asked me in the setup when I installed it if I wanted regular conversation style or bubble conversation style.

I'm pretty sure you can go into the settings and change it back and forth whenever you want also.

My issue with GOSMS has always been that their pop-up would not show up on top of the HTC Sense lockscreen on Sense 2.0+ roms. Handcent made a workaround option that you can select to make it work.

I haven't used GOSMS in a few months, have they added this functionality yet?

I have an Evo 4G running 2.2 and my browser doesn't look anything like the image you show here. It also doesn't have tabbed windows like I believe I see in your image. Am I missing something? I much prefer the other browser (such as Dolphin) features but they are just too slow. I would love to have tabbed browsing in the stock app if I can get it.

If you're looking at the stock browser picture, those aren't tabs. You see up at the very top of this website, the top bar that shows Android, BlackBerry, iPhone, etc? That's what you see that looks like tabs on the phone. Hope that helps!

First off... why is your EVO running 2.2 and not Gingerbread? It was released a year ago for the EVO. And I think you're talking about the Chrome Browser... which is only available on ICS

I think you failed to realize that the comment you're replying to is several months old.

AndroidCentral kept all the old comments and re-released this blog entry with a different list of apps...... for some unknown reason.

Check the comment dates.

Its the Google Chrome beta for phones. Only for ICS though which is probably why you've never seen it.

Best Launcher, Launcher Pro really!

You better update this rating, that launcher is so dated and not much development and support. There are other way better ones now. GO Launcher, Regina, MX Home come to mind that are all free and beat LPP hands down.

LPP was on the original list, when this was first published in Sept. check the date of the comment 29 weeks ago. No idea why they kept the original comments when a majority of the apps that people commented on aren't even on the list anymore.

Agree with most but stock browser can only go so far. Dolphin or Miren browser are way better. Started on Dolphin and now I am on Miren browser.

Android isn't intended to be rooted at all. Therefore, if it was easier, malware would be an even bigger problem than it is.

There's a valid debate about whether or not users should have full admin rights on their own devices; power users say yes, networks say no, and ordinary users are probably happy to trade away admin rights for a device that Just Flippin' Works, all the time.

ppl, the android stock browser isn't chrome. the chrome beta browser is a separate download app and only works in ICS.

Here's what I love about Android - I disagree with all of these "Best Apps" and that's fine. I'm not going to argue because with Android "Best" is subjective - I can use whatever is best for me, and you can use whatever is best for you. Choice, customization and control. The 3 C's of Android!

You are correct but this article is presenting it as fact. If this was titled "My Favorite Apps" then I wouldn't feel the need to argue.

Google Play Music and Chrome Beta? Both got lukewarm reception by users. Yikes. Give me Music Pro and Dolphin HD browser!

Definitely like Dolphin better than Chrome. Chrome doesn't even support Flash. Unless its been updated since I uninstalled it :)

PowerAmp (the paid version), in my opinion, the greatest music app on the market. I have been useing it (almost everyday) for a couple years now and have never had any issues. I curently own the Rezound and the first thing i loaded on it was PowerAmp. It has so many high level customization settings, its unreal. It also has a beats audio setting to utilize the beats audio on my Rezound. opinion....PowerAmp blows em all outa the water.

I agree. The most important feature to me is the folder choice for media files. I'm not one who uses playlists a lot, so it's nice to let the app cycle through and not hit my ringtones.

Also, I don't rely on cloud-based storage for most of my music, so the killer feature of Google Music isn't all that killer for me. Power Amp is simply the best app out there for me.

i agree with most.... however, my favorite launcher is apex because it has every single feature listed above, it's easier on ram, and it's free. my favorite weather is has everything 1weather has and it's more my taste....that's just up to preference ;)

I use Go Launcher EX, and I found MyWeather to be a pretty decent weather app. It moves pretty fast and you can have multiple places. Best part it is a free app

OK what weather widget is that? Its not 1weathers because 1weathers widget is round and ugly! But I really like the one in the picture above

Beautiful widgets with a custom icon pack downloaded.

Beweather also lets you use beautiful widget icon packs in their widgets.

So Josh thinks an app with a widget so fugly he has to go download a seperate app just to have a good widget is the best andriod app. *facepalm*

For the record, I've been using Beautiful Widgets for a long, long time, and will probably continue to do so in the future. I use 1Weather for the app.

You don't get it. Beautiful widgets is only intended to be used as a real-time weather monitor/clock widget. 1Weather has much more detailed information with Radar, hourly breakdowns, warnings, and much more. I, like many other users I know, use both apps.

I would also like to know, I quite like the wallpaper and the digital clock too, so if anyone knows then please let us know

Great article. What about the best launcher and browser that is not exclusive to ICS? Most android users still don't have ICS so I think it would be fair to write about those categories. IMO I love Go Launcher HD. It's buttery smooth, visually appealing, and simple. As for browsers I do prefer Dolphin Browser HD but I just can't stand the icon. I wish it was just a regular globe icon or something that makes it look like it is a browser.

Why not download the icon you want to use (or extract one from an apk) and use desktop visualizer to create a custom shortcut to dolphin...just an idea

To any one curious, I believe the weather/clock widget in the Nova Launcher screen shot is Beautiful Widgets' SuperClock. I may be wrong and it may be something packaged into Nova, but I can make Beautiful Widgets look just like that.

I would vote for Keepass as the best PW manager. It also uses dropbox for sync purposes and it's free. Roboform is almost a tie with Keepass however.

Browser: Dolphin is the only one I have found works with Lastpass bookmarklets so I don't need to subscribe to lastpass premium for the once a month I need to use it.

Launcher: I haven't used Nova, but Go Launcher does most (or all?) of the things that Nova has listed on their website as features. And it's completely free.

People use Nova because they like the look/feel of the stock ICS launcher...which Nova retains. Go Launcher is great for Android 2.* versions, but not so much for ICS phones...unless you want your phone to look like it's running an older version of Android.

This ^

IM+ has a lot of issues on every device i've tried it on. Issues with force closing, not reconnecting and things like that made me stop using it. I shifted to using trillian, and it's easily the better choice of the two. I never tried imo im, though, but I love that trillian can keep chat logs synched no matter where i IM from (android, desktop or web)

For everyone's comments on launchers the one main thing for me that makes Go Launcher EX stick out from the rest is it allows folders in the app drawer... When you have over 100 apps I don't want to be constantly flicking through pages. Until the others allow this I'm not switching.

Plume is pretty awesome, but at the rate Boid is getting developed and updated, it might take the crown from them.

Definitely, it has done one of the best ICS interface integrations I've seen thus far. Very very impressive Twitter app and the one I'm currently using.

Call me paranoid if you wish, but I'm not about to trust all my login credentials to an app that has full Internet access; it's part of my caution and common sense approach to keeping safe on Android. That's why I passed on mSecure, even when it was available for $0.49 during the Play Store rollout.

As usual, most of these apps won't run on tablets. Anyone still wondering why Android tablets can't compete with the iPad?

Great article! I just downloaded Go SMS and chrome beta. I've always used Handcent and Dolphin (easily among my most frequently used apps) but these might be suitable upgrades, at least to try. I didn't think anything could beat Dolphin but damn, chrome is nice!

In same apps I agree with you but like Google play music, plume Twitter app, and chrome beta are not one of the best adnroid app. May be we can say good apps.
Finally I really appreciate you for your wonderful article coz I got two best apps from here.

For a launcher, I use ssLauncher. It's very different. HIGH level of customization. It's fairly new and at this point is just above 1000+ (paid version). The free has 100k downloads. Give it a try, but don't get frustrated at the beginning. Take your time and play and customize. I used GO Launcher until I started flashing Gingerbread roms on my OG Droid. I had to get rid of it because it was too slow. I went to Zeam, Rocketlauncher then finally I stopped with ADW. ADW was the only one lightweight and feature rich enough to make me happy (Zeam is extremely lightweight, but it doesn't have a lot of features).

For a podcatcher, I use BeyondPod. When I first got my OG Droid, I found this and have never looked back. I have checked out a few other podcatchers, but none have the polish and usability of BeyondPod. This one does have a tablet version, too (BeyondPod for Honeycomb).

That's my $.02

I think most of these picks are spot on but the only thing that makes Play Music better than PowerAMP is the fact that cloud storage is supported. Other than that PowerAMP is miles ahead of Play Music. I wish they would implement some more features into Play Music such as the ability to search for album art and a full EQ like on PowerAMP.

dont agree with nova launcher,should have been apex as that is free and offers all the features of the paid version of nova.

Just my .2 cents, I use Fancy widgets which has about 5 Stock ICS widget clocks with a battery level indicator for those who are not rooted. It also has customizable weather widgets as well. For all you Star Wars fans out there, I'm using the Star Wars theme which has the twin suns from Tatooine and the Death Star as the moon.

I would also like to mention a useful video monitoring/recording app by Seedonk. You can use your IP web cam to stream video to your Android Device. It's really easy and convenient to use. I can view activity of my home while I'm at work to make sure no unexpected intruders are around. It's my most used on the go app.

I don't agree with Pocketcast being on this list. I tried it and it was a headache to deal with. I'm sure it's been updated since I used it but I would urge people to try Doggcatcher. I've been using it for a while and I am really pleased with it. It has everything I've ever looked up(pocketcast didn't)and the customer service is great. They've fixed my one or two issues I've had very quickly and they are very friendly. UI is great and it also has auto update so I never have to lift a finger and my new podcasts are there waiting on me.

PowerAmp (the paid version), in my opinion, the greatest music app on the market. I have been useing it (almost everyday) for a couple years now and have never had any issues. I curently own the Rezound and the first thing i loaded on it was PowerAmp. It has so many high level customization settings, its unreal. It also has a beats audio setting to utilize the beats audio on my Rezound. opinion....PowerAmp blows em all outa the water.

IMO the best Launcher for ICS is Apex Launcher because it has all the functionality of Nova Launcher plus more, and it's al free.

For Music player I vote for PowerAMP. Google Music would be nice if Google would put more countries on its map...and this goes for a bunch of other Google apps :(

HELP I have the Samsung Galaxy S2 by Sprint. And my texting is horrible still. I used Swipe on it and double checked my settings. Had this phone for 6 months and I still mispell words with I text really fast. Sometimes I do not have time to check for if I misstouched a letter and go back and fix it. It have been so annoyin gto me is there a Keyboard you suggest APP that would fixed my problem? I have used Iphone before had no problem with texting on a Iphone. Any suggestions please respond.

This list of apps are amazing. I got my new Android phone last month and still discovering and update my android phone. Trying lot of apps since i have this android phone and still searching more apps that suet my needs.

Google Play Music may be nice for cloud storage and their new free scan and match service is a big +1, but the app itself is not even as good as the stock Android Music Player. No folder view?! Garbage.

Had IM+ on my last phone and it was pretty nice. I don’t use it now but if they included a Corporate Exchange IM feature like Office Talk Free, I’d be all in.

2 disagreements: I'd rate both Dolphin and Opera Mobile over Chrome Beta, and PowerAMP and WinAmp over Google Music. That's like saying Google Reader is better than MoonReader. No way in Hell, unless you don't like to actually customize your experience. That's why I like Android: Customization. And Google Music is clown shoes on that front compared to PowerAMP.

I've been using Plume (Premium) for I don't even know how long and I love it!! I've tried a ton of other twitter apps but always go right back to Plume.

If you are a movie buff, then IMBD app is for you. It helps you become updated of all that movies that are going to be on the screen and the ones that are coming. IMBD app lets you guess who the celebrity is in the blurred photo and get points for how quick you get it done.

By far the best keyboard on the googleplay market is touchtext. It is easy, fast and accurate. With a little practice you will be much faster than any other keyboard. No crazy rules and it is so easy to use.

I was searching for the matter you shared through blog. It is quite interesting and obviously very informative for me. The reason is i am using some application but not aware of lot apps but i find my solution and i am ready to install one by one now.


these are the best apps ever there is no doubt about it. i been using android from while now, great features and great support . apps are really cool.. hey i have found really cool app which i would like to share with you guys as well..

dots looks interesting and please thescore is not the best sports app although it updates are much faster lol. i got cbs sports and bleacher report as well but man thescore updates right away on the score immediately so i admit thats good.i aslo use fotmob and nfl and nba gametime apps.
i also use the app keep to make my to do lists and stuff like that. I didnt try cardboard app yet so i will have to check that out right now.
Facebook is an essential part but cant be said as the best social app out there lol. vine, instagram and twitter are there as well. again it depends on what you mostly use.
and among games quizup is one of the best triva ones out there and aslo flow free although for the latter you have to pay for hints. smh . yes imdb is the best movie/shows app out there hands down.

All of these apps are top in their respective categories- seems there are a lot of up and comers. Seems like launchers have gained in popularity... How does this impact the list if you were to re work it today?
