The Google Play Store is teeming with choices, both excellent and horrible. These are the very best Android apps for your phone or tablet.
When we choose apps to include in our roundups, we’re after those that primarily excel in two areas: function and design. A functional app is either unique in its capabilities or simply works better than others. Apps with great designs are a joy to use. Android P introduced a good range of app-specific improvements, so we also prioritize those apps that use new system features and reflect the latest visual styles.
Every app on the list is excellent in its own way. Taken together, our collection is a snapshot of the Google Play Store’s best apps at the time of writing. If we missed your favorite app, be sure to leave a comment. We keep this list current, so your suggestions may make it into the next update.
