Best Android Apps For 2015

Posted on

Android apps are mobile softwares specifically developed for operating on the Android OS or operating system. This is probably the most popular platform used in tablets, cellphones along with other mobile devices. Google’s OS has an open source nature which directly means that users can download and install numerous fantastic applications on their phones and tablets. Most of the top Android apps are free, and there are free versions of the paid ones, so users can always choose to make the most of the Android apps store without having to worry about the finances involved.

Back in 2008, the first ever Android-powered handset was released and since then the Android apps store has become one the most visited marketplaces for downloading of applications. Back when it first started out, the Android Market for apps was quite minimalistic as compared to the Apple store for applications. Today, the store offers millions of applications for quick and easy download.

In the crowded Android Market, finding the best and top rated apps can be quite a challenge. This is where a comprehensive list of apps comes in handy. The apps are usually rated based on how many downloads it has recorded and the general public reviews collected. Here is a list of best apps for Android phones and tablet PCs based on user reviews and number of downloads:
