    How did I miss StumbleUpon coming to Android??
    I’ve wasted so many hours stumbling on my computer… now I’m going to do the same on my phone!

    I love these lists by the way. They’re a great way to find new apps to download.

    Come on guys! I think you need to change this or create Top 10 most functional or suggested or new apps for the week. Plenty of other sites give this type of info.

    • http://Website Chad

      I totally agree, this list is almost useless. We pretty much only get about 5 new apps per week with these lists. They need to change it to the top 10 recommended apps OR the top 10 apps that have never been in the top 10. gives us the top 100 apps, which is much more helpful than this small list of apps. Also, they need to give us links to the android market instead of making us use appbrain.

    Guys, I cannot understand the presented statistics. You are saying that StumbleUpon is the most downloaded application. However it has only 10,000 downloads in spite of other ones have >250,000 here. How is it decided?

    • http://Website tryptech

      It’s based on the number of downloads over the period of one week. Hence the title, but I’m sure you saw that.

  • Anthony Domanico

    We’re thinking of a better way to do this, or whether we just scrap the thing altogether.

  • OrganizedFellow

    It should be done by reader submission.

  • http://Website G.

    Or by not repeating the same apps from weeks ago. I second the idea for “top 10 recommended”

  • AndroidApp

    Thanks a lot for sharing here and This is one of the best post I have ever read, I would love to read more in future. I appreciate your ideas here. Surely it is good content. Thank you so much for this very interesting information. Good job! Keep up the good work
