  • I’d have to say my top three apps this year have been the very fun game “Plague Inc”.. making the next killer called “love” is so awesome when it says “Love will eradicate all human life”. Next would be Angry Birds Star Wars… I mean c’mon is freakin’ Star Wars!! Finally, I’d have to say Light Flow. Its a very amazing app for user with notification lights. Google needs to add some of this flexibility into stock Android.
