We noticed an article earlier today that touched on a report by Facebook, which involved teens walking away from the popular social network in favor of apps. This showed the power that certain software holds on smartphones that even the power of Facebook couldn’t stop, especially if friends and family are finding cool apps that you become addicted to as well.
Best free apps for Android at the start of this month — now that we are in March we wanted to update our readers on the top Android apps right now that are also free. These might not be new applications but they are certainly causing some people to keep off Facebook thanks to their addiction.
The biggest free app right now on Android is 4 Pics 1 Word, which I’ve seen the power of its addiction first hand. Not only did my wife start playing this free Android app, but my daughter and father-in-law quickly followed with all of them spending hours trying to solve the 4 picture puzzle. This is one app you should keep away from if you have a busy schedule and don’t have a lot of time to spend playing games or using apps, because if you start 4 Pics 1 Word you might not be able to stop.
The second most popular free app on Android right now is Facebook, which won’t be a surprise to most of our readers considering the popularity Facebook still commands.
We know that Snapchat has proven to be an app a lot of teenagers are using rather than spending time on Facebook, but another free Android app has been popular for a while and that app is called WhatsApp Messenger. This free app holds the 4th position on Google Play for top free apps, which allows users to message people for free in real time with a simple UI and had been updated earlier this year with a few improvements including Group Chat.
Three of the best free gaming apps for Android at the start of March include Temple Run 2, The Simpsons: Tapped Out and Candy Crush Saga. Each of these apps has been rated above 4.5 stars with downloads in the many thousands.
These are currently the best free Android apps for this month, although we’d love to know the Android app you’re addicted to or finding most useful right now?
