One thing that makes Android so powerful is the huge number of apps available in the Google Play Store, but with over 2 million apps to choose from, finding the best ones can be a daunting task. Fortunately, Google highlights the most popular apps and puts them at the forefront, making it easy to find useful and interesting apps quickly. Here are the top trending apps and games from July.
To start the list, there are some great apps for getting around town, whether you're at home or away. Detour is an app for anyone who likes to travel. Using your phone’s GPS to identify your location, it provides you information about your surroundings using voice. Although it is only currently available in a few major cities, hopefully, its coverage will expand soon. Citymapper is another app that is ideal for travel, as well as local commuting. Unlike traditional navigation apps, Citymapper considers all methods of travel and then suggests a route using the best one. This would prove particularly helpful for large cities in which driving may not always be the most practical option. And if you do plan to travel, Memrise will help you learn a new language in small sessions with entertaining techniques that make language-learning enjoyable. As far as entertainment goes, Musical.ly allows you to create up to a 15-second music video and share it privately or publicly among their growing community of users. And of course, there’s Prisma, a fantastic photo editing app that will turn your photos into works of art using a wide variety of different artistic styles.
In games, it should come as no surprise that Pokemon GO is at the top of the list. In the short time since this game was released, it has already become extremely popular and broken a number of records. NBA Live Mobile brings the popular basketball franchise from EA to the small screen, promising “the most competitive, authentic basketball game on the planet”. Other notable games include Farm Heroes Super Saga, Gordon Ramsay Dash, and Talking Tom Gold Run. In movies, Ghostbusters and The Bourne Identity, are trending, likely because of their newly-released sequels, and the top playlist was Indepen-dance Party. With so much great content to choose from, you are sure to find apps, games and more for the whole family. And now, you can share them with up to five people using Google's new Play Store Family Library. This feature allows you to share your app licenses using a single credit card, making it easier to manage apps that you commonly use with family members. While there is a great deal to choose from, this list should help narrow down some of the most noteworthy offerings in the Google Play Store.
