These Are The Best Apps on Google Play Store for 2017

Every year, Google announces the list of best apps in their own specific categories on the Play Store. At the final days of Google I/O 2017, the company revealed the list of winners which had dominated the store for this year.

The number of apps short-listed across the various categories stood at 57, which were subsequently whittled down to just 12 within their categories.

Google Play Award Winners

Below is a list of all the winners from the awards. As one can see, save for two, all the apps chosen for the honors are free.

DuoLingo Getting a Run for Its Money?

The accolade for the Best App went to Memrise, a language-translation app which is used by 15 million people. It seems like DuoLingo finally has a worthy competitor in this category although its still far ahead of Memrise in terms of users.

The award for Best Game went to Transformers: Forged to Fight.

There were new categories added to reflect the development happening in them in recent times. For Best VR Experience, Virtual Virtual Reality was chosen, a two-hour long game which works through any headset.

For Best AR Experience, the app chosen was WOORLD, which allows you to mess with your environment in a playful way through your phone’s display. The fitness app Runtastic got accolades in the Android Wear Experience category.
