Top 10 Android app updates this week: AllCast, CBS Sports

app updates

Welcome back to our weekly Top 10 Android App Updates column, where we take a look at the most frequently-upgraded apps for the week. I’ve found that one of the best ways to discover useful apps is find the ones that people are actually updating rather than those with 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 end up being 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.

      Allcast is good, works great with Xbmc, still biggie with my roku.

      Overall very impressed.

  • Mike

    The new NBC news app is a disaster. They have decided to make it totally unusable, along with their newly designed website… I hate to have to go to CNN.
