Top 10 Android app updates this week: Zoe, HERE

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. We’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 selecting 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 we’ll make exceptions for apps that have had significant updates. We 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.

    Thanks for this. I would love to inform you that I like and use Digitalis. Neat and functional app that enables me to follow all the medical news and to create CPD profile. It is available for both Android: https://play.google.com/store/… and iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/ap… and it is really helping me as a medical doctor. There are great number of useful references too.
