2013 has been another great year for android owners, with some superb apps released. However with literally thousands of new apps coming out each month, and with some of very questionable quality, it can be almost impossible to unearth the gems. To help with that we have compiled a list of our favourite android apps:

Temple Run 2

The original Temple Run was a huge hit and with high hopes the sequel has not disappointed. There are plenty of additional features, loads of new levels, gorgeous graphics and addictive gameplay – all the elements of a great mobile game.

Asphalt 8: Airborne

The Asphalt series brings the thrill of arcade racing to your mobile. They have been some of the most fun driving games on any device so Asphalt 8: Airborne had a lot to live up to. The big new feature lets you get airborne, performing tricks and stunts. There isn’t much more to say other than a great all round game.


Strata starts off as a very simple and easy puzzle game, but fairly soon the difficulty increases and the addiction kicks in. Unique and frustratingly entertaining puzzle game which will make the morning commute fly past.

Football Manager 2014

One for the next Sir Alex, Football Manager was already a very good football management game. The 2014 update improves the few flaws and adds a new feature “My Club”, which allows you to build your own football club from scratch.

Camera Awesome

The IOS hit has finally made it across to Android. Camera Awesome gives you more control over your handhelds camera. You can adjust the exposure, focus and apply filters. Unlikemany other apps the changes look just as good on the big screen as they do on your device.

Toy Story: Story Theatre

One for the kids, Toy Story Theatre lets your child create their own story, using the characters from the hit Pixar films. They can ever record voiceovers to narrate the story. This really is a nice little app that will provide hours of fun for your whole family.

Cbeebies Playtime

Here we have another app for the kiddies, but this time for a slightly younger audience. The Cbeebies is aimed at toddlers. It includes lots of mini games, based on popular characters from Cbeebies shows. There is also an option to create an adult profile, so you can check what activities your child has been doing.

Quad Drawer

Quad Drawer adds some nice features to improve the standard Android app drawer. The most noticeable of these features is the keypad which lets you quickly skip to the app you’re looking for. It also helps to sort your apps, bring the most used to the fore.


Soundwave is another app to help you find new music. The difference between this and its many competitors is the social emphasis. You can take inspiration from your friends and even check out what your favourite celebs are listening to.

Google CloudPrint

If you have a CloudPrint compatible printer, then you should own this app. Take control of your printer with you mobile, checking the status of print jobs and print from your mobile over the web, no matter where you are in the world (as long as you have an internet connection!).
