When it comes to android apps, there are new options and selections coming out just about every day. Because apps can be both privately developed and produced by major companies, they seem to be in constant production, which can make them a bit difficult to keep up with. If there are new apps available every day, it’s difficult to really be able to tell which ones are worth downloading or purchasing. So, to help you identify the apps that are particularly high quality, here are a few words on some of the highest grossing android apps of 2012 so far.
o Draw Something – Recently bought by the Zynga game company, and featuring both a free and a paid version, Draw Something has dominated the app market for virtually the entire calendar year so far. The app is really quite simple, and seems to be based on the popular board game Pictionary. To play, you simply draw pictures by touch, send them to friends, and have them guess what you drew. It’s simple, but addictive and entertaining, and popular with thousands and thousands of users.
o Poker By Zynga – If you are already a fan of computer poker through sites like Party Poker, then this is definitely the app for you. Poker is wildly popular these days, which means that there are actually dozens, if not hundreds of poker-related apps. However, Poker By Zynga seems to be the most popular of the bunch, and is known for being great for beginners and experts alike. The app focuses on Texas Hold’Em, and has enough users that it is never difficult to find a game.
o Life Is Crime – If you prefer a more in-depth gaming experience, you may well enjoy Life is Crime, which takes real locations you are familiar with and throws you into a simulated RPG world of crime based on those locations. Much like other crime-based games, the goal is simply to become master of your turf, and this is a particularly good app to have on hand for whenever you have a few minutes to spare. It’s easy to play a bit here and there, and your game always waits for you.
o Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation – If you have simply been wanting more quality out of your mobile phone gaming experience, this is the app you’ve been waiting for. With graphics and game play worthy of an advanced gaming console, this first person shooter is one of the most impressive efforts in app gaming yet.
