  1. Google has released its annual “Best of” list comprised of the top Android apps and games of 2015. The search giant has also compiled the top-selling albums, books, movies and television shows as well as its personal favorites in several of those categories.

    If you’re new to Android (or simply looking for something to keep you entertained over the weekend), this seems like as good of a place as any to start. As Android Police notes, some app selections appear to be recommended globally while others will vary depending on your region.

    With that said, a section of the top apps and games of 2015 in the US – in no particular order – are as follows (titles are free unless otherwise noted):

    Apps

    • Flipagram: Music Video Editor
    • Robinhood: Free Stock Trading
    • Language Learning
    • Colorfy – Coloring Book Free
    • B&H Photo Video Pro Audio
    • HBO Now
    • Backgrounds HD (Wallpapers)
    • Toca Nature ($2.99)
    • Showtime
    • Retrica
    • Memrise Learn Languages Free
    • Wishbone – Compare Anything
    • We Heart It
    • EyeEm – Camera & Photo Filter
    • Cleo for Messenger

    Games

    • Agar.io
    • Walking Dead: Road to Survival
    • PewDiePie: Legend of Brofist ($4.99)
    • Fallout Shelter
    • Minecraft: Story Mode ($4.99)
    • Candy Crush Soda Saga
    • Mobile Strike
    • Deer Hunter 2016
    • Clash of Clans
    • Crossy Road
    • Minecraft: Pocket Edition ($6.99)
    • DomiNations

    The full "Best of" list can be found over at the Google Play Store.

    HBO Now over Netflix?

    They missed out 'Path to Luma', 'Monument valley', 'Smashy Road', and 'Sorcery'.

    No, it really isn't. It's just the ones that Google wants to promote and are probably easier to sell.

    They thought milbourn drysdale in the beverly hillbillies was a tightwad when he caused his maid to watch tv on a 3 inch screen. Now they watch hbo and showtime on a one inch screen? It came up years ago too when I worked at radio shack in hollywood. Their had to have gizmo was a color tv with a three inch screen battery powered in 1985. No cable then. Deja vu all over.

    Who named the poor thing, "Pewdiepie"? That's just stone cold rude.

    OTOH, since dealing with the potentially ironic homophones, "pew" and "phew", Pewdiepie might be some annoying little brat who is sorta cute, but farts a lot in church....:eek::oops:

    It's in the games list rather than the apps list, just to be a picky b...

    Like candy crush is actually a good game, as someone said, promo bs. Candy Crush is the game equivalent of Facebook. The game for simpletons that makes a killing from ads and lives.

    It's all part of the "slows progression of mankind" list for me.
