Top 10 Android games and apps of April 2014

The top Android game for April was not the Amazing Spider-Man 2, but a game about mini golf, in space. It seems Android gamers are fascinated by odd golf games as the number five spot also belongs to a golf game with a twist. Golfy Bird will have you flap your way into the hole with as few flaps as possible. Okay then.

The top 10 Android apps features the very handy Microsoft Office for mobile and the anti-social app, Boldomatic. "Shameless, partially offensive, yet strangely profound. Witty sayings, quotes, poetry, song lyrics or just random thoughts... craft it with Boldomatic and share it with your universe. If you can't take irony or sarcasm, it might not be for you and you're better off staying on Facebook or posting photos of your cat on Instagram. Boldomatic is all about clever text and pure design."

The Android Quality Index boasts over 200,000 scores from the world's best websites, such as  Life of AndroidPocket Gamer, and  IGN, and uses a unique metric to create a single definitive score for each Android title.

10 Ace Fishing: Wild Catch Com2uS 8.1


"Astro Golf finishes atop April's Android Qi games chart. Yep, it's a mini-golf game that's simply out of this world. Putting cheesy puns to one side, Astro Golf is more of a physics-puzzler than an outright sports game, and it's all the better for it. Speaking of physics-puzzlers, April saw the much-anticipated Android release of Cut the Rope 2, which lands at #4. Everyone's favourite candy-munching critter returns with all-new companions and new-found mobility. While we're linking things up so smoothly, April bore witness to another long-awaited conversion in the shape of Mikey Hooks. Surfacing just a few months after Mikey Shorts, this sequel features the same speedrun platformer gameplay as the original but with a new swinging mechanic. Finally, we have a true original in Shattered Planet. It's an isometric action-RPG set in a sci-fi world, and it's another of those challenging roguelikes filled with random level design, permanent death, and huge amounts of replayability."

"Topping the April Android Qi app chart is Unreal Space HD, a beautifully star-hazy 3D live wallpaper with high-resolution graphics. More useful (albeit to a specific subset of surfing enthusiasts) is Joel Parkinson Pro Surf at #2. This app provides 30 programs and 150 exercises to help make you better at riding the surf. Just behind that is Boldomatic, something of an anti-social network for those who want to share thoughts and expressions rather than inane cat pictures. Finally, we have the eagerly anticipated release of Microsoft Office Mobile for Android. View and edit your Excel, Word, and PowerPoint documents on the fly with a mobile-optimised UI."
