Top 10 most popular Android apps from last week: Trello, Cash King, JB Keyboard


Every week we cover Android gaming on Wednesday, followed by Top 10 app updates on Friday. Now every Monday (or Tuesday) 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 from last week among your peers.



Trello was featured in our Android Rookies column last week and a lot of you clicked on it when I said it was an excellent app. The developer describes the app as a “whiteboard with super powers” and it’s a great tool to use when collaborating with a group. Users can create boards for a specific project or event and then create cards for individual tasks. Each card can contain multiple assets including comments, checklists, photos and video. The Trello app syncs with their web client, so you can update all your projects when you’re at your PC.



Cash King offers cash rewards for downloading free apps, completing surveys, and watching videos from your mobile phone. It looks like you have to grind a lot to earn a cash out and the reviews are mixed so far, but some users have reported already receiving their first payment.



This app is a port of the official Android 4.1 Jelly Bean keyboard from the Android Open Source Project. There is a free version that includes all the normal features you would expect, plus a paid version with extra goodies. I use this on a HTC Sense device and the keyboard experience is identical to what I have seen on the Galaxy Nexus.

Gameloft’s latest first person shooter was on sale for $0.99 over the weekend and a lot of you took advantage of it. It looks like you can still get it for the sale price, so hurry up before it’s back to the normal price of $4.99.



As mentioned above, this popular Gameloft title is on sale for a limited time. Grab it now if you’re a fan of Grand Theft Auto inspired games.



This is our favorite first person shooter and it’s a great deal at only $0.99. Most of you have already purchased it, but it would be a shame if you have yet to experience this game and miss out on the sale price.



Phosphor Games released their action-adventure title Horn last week and it was met with some stellar reviews. I’ve been playing it over the last week and it lives up to the Zelda comparisons. If you own a Nexus 7, this game deserves a spot on your device. Don’t forget about our Horn contest, where you could win an ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity.



Another title that was part of the Google Play End of Summer sale. I have yet to play the Android version, but I played this board game for countless hours when I was a kid. If you act now, you can still grab it for only $0.99.



Onavo is a great app for those of you with a limited data plan. It’s only available for devices with Android 4.0 or greater, but it provides some advanced data management features not found in stock Android.  Its revolutionary universal data caching tool can allow you to get as much as 5X out of your Android’s data plan.



Rounding out the Top 10 is one last game that’s on sale for $0.99. I love racing games, so I went ahead and purchased this, but I have yet to play it yet. Draw Race 2 features a huge single player campaign with over 180 challenges, so I think it’s worth the sale price.

    I downloaded those gameloft games and they wouldn’t even work on my phone. They shouldnt have let me buy them if that was the case.

    • ChaosKiller

      And you could contact their support.

        same here, NOVA 3 just force close on my phone, i contacted customer service, and they just gave me a damn automated response.

  • ZR0ExX

    Anyone who wants fun musical games should get magic piano and song pop. Both are fun. Very addicting.

  • uknowme

    I picked up Draw Race and I’m not that enamored by it. I think on a tablet it might be better. On a phone though it is kind of hard to trace the track.

  • Steve Heinrich

    The Trello app is great if you have used the web app. It is definitely a consistent experience. Highly recommend.

  • Esoth

    Draw Race 2 is actually a really interesting take on racing games and was clearly designed for phones. As the name suggests, you actually draw out the path your car will take before the race even starts, and it will follow what you drew. During the race, you can also strategically use the turbo button to mix things up.

    Overall, it’s good fun and amazing value at 99 cents.

    Does anyone know if NOVA 3 was fixed to work properly on the Nexus 7? I’ve heard Modern Combat does fine, but NOVA had some issues.

    Definitely going to pick up Horn.

    not sure why everyone is so lofty about those game loft games. sure, they look nice, but they keep on spamming my notification bar. multiple times a day. That’s just nicely packaged spam.

  • Biswadip

    Always use Trial 1st for Paid Games. If trial works then only buy actual .
