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. When Monday rolls around, we look back to see which apps were the most appealing to our audience. Read on for the five most popular Android apps from last week. These apps are ones that are most likely new and haven’t appeared in the top five list more than three times.
1. Gboard – The Google Keyboard
App info: Gboard has everything you love about Google Keyboard—speed and reliability, Glide Typing, voice typing, and more—plus Google Search built in. No more app switching; just search and share, right from your keyboard.
2. Events from Facebook
App info: Looking for something to do with friends this weekend? Want to know what’s happening tonight? Find events that match your interests and stay up-to-date no matter where you are.
3. Friendly for Facebook
App info: Friendly is the most complete Facebook and FB Messenger alternative. Built as an extension of the light Facebook mobile website, it will preserve your battery, storage and data, while giving you back control over your news feed.
App info: AccuBattery measures the actual battery usage using information from the battery charge controller. Battery usage per app is determined by combining these measurements with information on which app is in the foreground.
App info: Contacts helps you stay in touch with the people you care about. Easily add contacts and edit information like their photo, phone number, and email. Save contacts to your Google Account and access them on any device.
Note: To ensure that all apps receive a fair chance to make the list, we will retire any app that has made the list for three consecutive weeks.
