Top 5 most popular Android apps from last week: Hangouts Dialer, Moto Actions


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. Moto Display

Moto Display

App info: Moto Display gives you what you need to know, when you need to know it – without waking your phone. Information discreetly appears on the screen, so you don’t have to turn the screen on to look at the time or see notifications.


2. Hangouts Dialer

Hangouts Dialer

App info: Now call any phone number in the world from your Hangouts app using your data connection. Download and install the Hangouts Dialer to activate phone calling functionality in the Hangouts app.


3. Moto Actions

Moto Actions

App info: Moto Actions responds to simple gestures without you having to touch the phone. Simply wave your hand above the phone to silence calls or snooze alarms. Or, open the camera with just two quick twists of your wrist.


4. Downhill Penguin

Downhill Penguin

App info: Downhill Penguin is a fun and addicting endless sliding game. Help Pebbles the Penguin get as far as he can by dodging obstacles like trees, water holes and eskimos!

You can play via tilt or touch.


5. Unmechanical


App info: Unmechanical is all about the adventure of a little helicopter trapped in a strange but fascinating world. Help him through to discover the secrets of the world!


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.

    And once again two of the five apps are only available to the owners of 2% of Android phones. How about posting app updates for apps that actually have a significant update? Not Motorola specific apps for just Motorola devices. I mean, the screenshots from the app store say it all. “This app is incompatible with all of your devices”. It’s almost like it’s speaking to 98% of Android owners!!!!!!
