Top 10 Android app updates this week: Waze, OneDrive, HoverChat

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 to find the ones that are actually being updated by the developers rather than going after the apps 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’ll going to make an exception for apps that have had significant updates. I hope you enjoy this weekly feature and that you 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.

    I have bit torrent app on my 1.3GHz dual core processor Android 4.4.2 Jelly Bean Smartphone with 512 MB RAM. It is completely justify that this app should deserve to be at number 1 position as it runs as smoothly as I can easily download HD movies, games and software through it.

    • Liju

      Android 4.4.2 ain’t Jellybean! Its Kitkat! Are you sure about the version?

    My nexus 5 works fine with almost all Android Game App, and most Office app as well as Movie ones, on the other hand I’ve got trouble with battery life as I use it too much, maybe should get a car wireless charger to charge while driving.
