The Play Store may indeed be a giant hole of mostly crappy apps, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some good ones available. Google has made it easier for us to find these better apps by holding a ‘Google Play Awards’ which nominates, in Google’s words: “some of the best apps and games on Google Play, ranging from standout startups and indies to most innovative and best designed.”

Although we already know most of these applications, it’s nevertheless a good idea to have a central location where the best of the best are displayed.

Some of the apps include:

  • Clash Royale
  • Dubsmash
  • Minecraft: Story Mode
  • Todoist
  • VRSE – Stories in virtual reality
  • This War of Mine

You can see the full list over at this page.

It is quite neat of Google to offer these nominations as a reward to developers and as a guide to Android users.
