  • I only have six things from the entire list. Posted from my Motorola Moto G
  • Uh, congratulations? Do you ride a fixed gear bike as well? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Dafuq? He can't disagree with Google's list without being criticized? Posted via the Moto X Pure Edition
  • He disagreed with nothing, and comes off as proud he doesn't like popular things, or in the least he wanted a pat on the back, which I gave him before assuming he is a hipster. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Clearly he disagreed with Google's list if he had very few items on it. Not even sure how the hipster thing plays into it just because he doesn't have many apps from the list, since I'm sure a lot of people are the same. Posted via the Moto X Pure Edition
  • This, I have about 4 apps on the list. I disagree with it too. "I'm da Blur boys!" - Me with 1200 ping. Yes. My Internet got worse.
  • It's the only way! Can't reverse with a ratcheted sprocket! Wubba lubba dub dub!
  • When it's a topic about app and media relevance (best of the whole year), I felt like the fact that I only have 6 things is interesting, either because I'm not current with many popular things, or Google is overplaying the importance of most of these entries. That's all, man. Posted from my Motorola Moto G
  • Chuong neglected to link the Best Apps list (e.g. Waze, Pinterest, Tumblr, eBay, Pandora, Viber). Did you check it? Posted via Android Central App on my HP TouchPad (Schizoid PAC-ROM 4.2.2)
  • Except for "22 jump street" and "true detective" I'd have to disagree with everything on every list. Books, games, everything. But that's why it's their list and not mines Posted via...The One
  • I miss the $0.10 Google Play Store sales :(
  • Mine says no results found Posted via the Android Central App
  • I actually didn't like Monument Valley. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Any "Top games" list that includes the Kim Kardashian game deserves no respect. Posted via the Android Central App
  • On the general play store listing the first item featured is "candy crush soda saga" the second is the book "I am Malala". I find that both disturbing and amusing... Wubba lubba dub dub!
  • I only have 2 but to be fair I don't buy music or movies, tv shows, books from google play.
    Apps only.
    I prefer physical media, Blu-ray dvds, CDs, and Hard Cover books.

  • The US site AndroidOrigin already thinking almost everything about the range of Xperia devices Z4 that Sony has come out next year. And if he should probably not appear Xperia Z5 in 2015, Sony released two stops per year flagships ranges, however the Japanese account out a variation Xperia Z4 Compact (4.7 inches), Xperia Z4 Ultra (6.44 inches) and Z4 Xperia Tablet (10.1 inches) .

  • Good work
  • I have one item from the list from a few years ago. Shazam! The rest looks like waste IMO thus far.

  • Snowpiercer was horrible. I know the list is by ratings on Google Play but that movie was one of the bottom 10% of the year. Preachy and poorly realized. Could have been more dramatic. Was just like, "someone, please crash this train!". They needed snakes really. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Anyone know of any good fixed gear bikes?
  • I cry evry tim Posted from my Motorola Moto G
  • No, I spend my money on top apps "I'm da Blur boys!" - Me with 1200 ping. Yes. My Internet got worse.
