Top 5 most popular Android apps from last week: Ahagame, DrawTime


Every week we cover new Android apps with Fresh Meat on Wednesday, followed by Android Gaming on Thursday and Top 10 App Updates on Friday. When Monday rolls around, we look back to see which apps were the most appealing to our audience. Read on for the 5 most popular Android apps from last week. These apps are ones that are most likely new and haven’t appeared in the Top 5 list more than 3 times.

1. SwiftKey Keyboard

2. Google Now Launcher*

4. Ahagame


App info: This is a game resembling a box of sweets. You will get different flavours and user experience in each game. You can also try for free boosters by using a spinner or solving a riddle. The games can involve shooting with an object, solving a question or getting through a maze.

Better Open With

App info: Created to mimic Android’s default “Complete action using” dialog, Better Open With shows you a visually similar popup screen when you choose to open a link, an image, a PDF or any other filetype – listing all possible app handlers as you normally see.


Note:  To ensure that all apps receive a fair chance to make the list, we will retire any app that has made the list for three consecutive weeks and will place it in our Android and Me App Hall of Fame. We will post this Hall of Fame list in a dedicated series. Any app with * next to the title indicates it will now be added to our Hall of Fame list and will no longer be listed in this article.

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.

    SwiftKey Keyboard is now one of the most trending Android apps and it is because of the features it has. They modifies your typical keyboard because you can create message by swiping the letters.

    I tried Swiftkey because I DESPISE Dragon Dictation being forced on me as my ONLY talk to text option if you use Swype. I like Swiftkey Flow pretty well…it isn’t quite as good as Swype (but this latest update supposedly boosted the accuracy of ‘flowing’. PLUS YOU CAN USE GOOGLE’S TALK TO TEXT!!!! Yay! Keep up the good work, Swiftkey. Thanks for taking care of us ex-swypers. Nuance, eat dirt. Dragon Dictation blows.

    Isn’t Google Now already a swipe away? Just swipe up? I guess hardware phons don’t have it? I guess that’s one use for it.
