Google Play Store: The best apps and games 2021

The Play Store of Google offers around 3 million apps for installation on Android devices. This number was slightly declining in 2021. But that does not mean that the offer stagnates. Rather, thousands of apps disappear every day and similar many come! Who should still keep the overview? To put at least the best apps of the year 2021 in the limelight, Google has officially chosen the best of 16 nominated apps and the game of the year from 17 nominations. In addition, users have chosen their favorite app and the best game 2021 by vote.

App of the year 2021: The nominees

The Google editors had considered the following six App categories, and up to three apps for choosing the app of the year nominated:

The best apps with fun factor: Here were the innovative, but also controversial social audio app Clubhouse, the photo-aftercolorer Colorize and the film-cut app VideoLAN for election, which was 2017 iPhone app of the year. The best everyday helpers: In this category, photoroom was nominated — an app that automatically releases objects to photos and combines with a new background. Thus, the homepage kit Wix Owner and the barcode scanner Yuma, which evaluates in simple stages, is how healthy a scanned food or cosmetic is. The best self-development apps: In this very valued category, Google gathered the Meditation App Down Dog, the App Moises, which isolates individual instruments or song from music files, and the fitness app Peloton. Good to do via app: The Reading App Speechify seemed not good enough to other categories and therefore got their own. It depends, among other things, people with reading weakness. Optimal for Wear OS: The best this year's apps for Android smartwatches are according to Google the Meditation App Calm, the Calorie Counter MyFitnesSpal and the Sleep Analysis App Sleep Cycle. Optimal for tablets: Top for tablets are according to Google The Image Editing App Adobe Lightroom, the Layout App Canva and the Sign App Concepts.
