Top 10 Android app updates this week: Twilight, Bank of America, MX Player


Welcome back to our weekly Top 10 Android App Updates column, where we take a look at the most upgraded apps for the week. I’ve found that one of the best ways to discover useful apps is to look at what people are actually updating, not focus on which apps have the most installs. As in the past, we’re going to filter out minor updates for the super popular apps that have over 10 million installs, but I’m going to make an exception for apps that had significant updates. I hope you enjoy this weekly feature and discover some apps that you might find useful.

I was first introduced to Android with the Samsung Fascinate and I've been hooked ever since. I love the customization that Android offers the user to personalize their phone. I enjoy writing and have been blessed with the opportunity to share this passion for Android with others.

    Floating notifications is not as much good to be placed on top of this awesome apps collection list. Any user can get teased by it in a day or so. And Skype premium is offering free WiFi for month of August

      Try notification toggle. I love it. You can put toggle switches and most used apps at the top of your notification screen so you have easy access to them from any screen quickly. I love it

    I’m on a Nexus 4 with Android 4.3 and this latest version of MX player which is supposed to support 4.3 crashes every time. I’ve read other reports of MX Player crashing with Android 4.3 even though this update is supposed to be 4.3 compatible.
