The Top Apps, Books, Movies and Music Of 2014 An Infographic from Google

Recent Articles




Google has just released its ‘best stuff of the year’ on Google Play for 2014, and in terms of most downloaded content, it’s not all that different from Apple’s list.

Frozen, The Walking Dead, and Fancy by Iggy Azalea all placed at the top of the list in their respective categories, though the app situation varied a bit from that of Apple’s list, which is an editorial decision while Google focuses on downloads.

In the Google Play store, top apps included Duolingo (which made Apple’s list last year), Netflix, Facebook, and MyFitness Pal to name a few.

Google also said that Health and Fitness was the fastest growing app category.

Here’s the full list from Google. Congrats to the folks who are on it.
