London, UK - 7th May 2013 - Steel Media Ltd
If you were wondering what the best reviewed Android games and apps on the web last month were, here's the Android Quality Index ( Qi) round-up for
April to fill you in.
The Android Quality Index boasts over 200,000 scores from the world's best websites, such as AppStorm, Life of Android, and Pocket Gamer, and uses a unique metric to create a single definitive score for each Android title.
Here are April 2013's top selections...

(N.B. The monthly games chart is based on titles released and reviewed in the last month. The apps chart is based on titles reviewed over the last three months. Hence, this is not a cumulative chart and earlier released titles may have higher scores.)
Topping April's Android Qi game chart is the much-anticipated sequel to an Android great. In ZeptoLab's Cut the Rope: Time Travel, we witness the return of the candy-chomping Om Nom. This time around, though, he's accompanied by a variety of time-displaced partners, which mixes up the physics-puzzling rather nicely. It's all action at #2, mind, with Glu's Frontline Commando: D-Day taking place in the thick of World War II. Impressive 3D visuals and heart-stopping duck-and-cover gameplay give this one the edge over its rivals. There are more World War II 'kicks' to be had down in seventh spot via Strategy & Tactics: WW II. As the name suggests, though, this is a rather more cerebral effort than Glu's, with the emphasis here firmly on historically accurate turn-based battles. Finally, at #9, there's Ice Rage. This one-on-one ice hockey game serves up plenty of arcade sports thrills, and stars a number of familiar characters from Mountain Sheep's back catalogue and beyond.
AppLock Pro secures its place atop the Android Qi app chart for April by enabling you to protect any of your most treasured apps with a password system. If you keep sensitive data in a calendar, note, or office app, this is the ideal tool for you. At #3, we have MediaFire, which has long been a leading name in the world of online file hosting and sharing. This app allows you to gain access to and manage your cloud-based files in a snap. Just behind that is Google's latest wonder-app, Google Keep. The Big G's take on note-taking is precisely what you'd expect: extremely stripped back, super-intuitive, and perfectly synced. With Photoshop Touch, meanwhile, Adobe opens out the powerful and popular Photoshop suite to Android users. Layer, filter, and generally tweak your photos to perfection - all on the go. It makes Instagram photo tweaking look like child's play.
We'll continue to provide an updated listing each and every month, together with a round-up of the year. For all the up-to-date information on which Android games, apps, and publishers are reviewing best, head on over to the Android Quality Index now.
