Google names best Android apps of 2012

In Google's list of best apps for 2012, the company mentions some expected big hitters, as well as a few niche titles out of left field.


By way of a new staff-curated page on Google Play, Google lists its picks for best apps of 2012. Titles include big-name hits like Pinterest and Evernote, as well as more-obscure choices like Ancestry and Grimm's Show White. Overall, I find the list a bit underwhelming, but since it is composed solely of staff recommendations (and not best sellers), there's certainly room for differing opinions. See the full list of Google's recommendations below.

In addition, Google also published lists of top games, movies, music, and books.

What do you think of Google's picks for best apps of 2012? Feel free to let us know in the comments section below.
