What are the best Android apps? The best apps for Android include a wide variety of software programs that can educate us, help us stay organized and entertain us when we're bored. This list includes some of the most popular Android apps around, along with a few newcomers that are definitely worth checking out. Be sure to vote for the Android apps you find the most useful, and vote down any that you don't like for whatever reason. Also, you can add your favorite Android apps to the list!

The top Android applications each serve a valuable purpose. If you have a brand new Android smartphone (or a tablet), these are just a few of the apps you'll want to consider getting. Some are free; others do cost a small amount, so be sure to check the prices before you decide to download them.

Several of the Android apps listed here will likely be very familiar to smartphone users, including Evernote, Pocket, Feedly, Instagram and of course, Facebook for Android and Twitter. Some of these apps are among Google's best Android apps of 2012, and they might not be all that familiar to you (Grimm's Snow White? What?!). That doesn't mean they're bad -- it just means that you need to check them out to see if they'll be of interest to you.

Need Android apps to help you stay organized? Apps like Evernote, Tasker and Wunderlist might be in order. Want an app to help you keep track of your personal finances? Consider an app like Mint for Android. Android travel apps are another popular genre, with apps like TripIt and Expedia Hotels & Flights making this list.
