Every week we cover new Android apps with Fresh Meat on Wednesday, followed by Android Gaming on Thursday and Top 10 app updates on Friday. Now every Monday we will look back and see which ones were the most crowd-pleasing among our audience. Read on for the 10 most popular Android apps among your peers from last week.
Coming in at the top spot from last week was Creatorverse, an app that allows you to design unique creations and then set them in motion. I didn’t have the chance to check it out yet, but the promo video makes it look exactly like an app I played with all the time in physics class. The app is free and it has good reviews, so give it a try if you have a creative mind and enjoy physics.
There are a million photo apps, but not many of them have challenges where you compete with friends. Photosmash lets you easily turn your photos into custom creations. Simply take a picture, erase portions of the picture with your finger, and take another picture to occupy that space. This is another one I chose not to download, but the early reviews are doing well with a 4.5 average.
3. Circle Synth
We haven’t featured any music apps in a long time, but maybe we should do more after Circle Synth came in at the number three spot last week. Circle Synth is a grid-less sequencer synthesizer that makes quick and quirky musical sounds. This is another free app, so give it a try if you want to mix your own beats.
The Contacts Plus Team took their most popular feature, contact merging, and released it as a separate app. All you need to do is launch Merge+ to find duplicate contacts, review suggestions, and then merge your selected duplicate contacts. I gave it a quick try and it got the job done, merging over 200 of my dublicate contacts.
Indigo is another voice-enabled personal assistant, which always seem to be popular with our audience. This app is currently in beta, and the early reviews show it still has some bugs, but it might be worth a try it you want to help test out this new app and provide your suggestions for improving it.
6. Minimal Text
Minimalistic Text is a widget app that displays information in a minimalistic way. It was recently updated to Version 3.0, so give it a look if you love clean looking widgets.
7. Flatout Stuntman
Last week’s most popular game was Flatout: Stuntman from Team6 Game Studious. The Flatout series is one of the most popular stunt titles on gaming consoles, and this mobile version delivers all the same exciting action. The game is optimized for Tegra-powered devices, but it runs on a wide variety of Android smartphones and tablets. It’s free to play, so check it out if you enjoy ragdoll fun.
8. Iron Man 3
Iron Man 3 hits theaters this week, but you can get your fix early with this free game from Gameloft. Become billionaire Tony Stark as Iron Man in this free, fast-paced, endless runner that features four epic villains from the Iron Man comics: Crimson Dynamo, Ezekiel Stane, Living Laser and the mighty M.O.D.O.K.
Twilight is a free Android app that claims to improve your sleep. It filters the blue spectrum on your phone or tablet after sunset and protects your eyes with a soft and pleasant red filter. I’ve been using it for several weeks now, and I don’t think I could live without it. Twilight is installed on all my Android devices, and I suggest you try it out if you use your device in bed before sleep.
Rounding out the Top 10 was Adroid, which was just updated to Version 2.0 last week. This free app allows you to take complete control of your Android device from any web browser, and it’s a great tool if you spend your days working from a PC.
