In just over 10 years Android has gone from having only 50 Apps on the Google Play store to having over 2.8 million. 

Android apps have become an essential part of most Android users’ lives with thousands of new apps being downloaded on a daily basis. 

Their growth has been one for the record books however with that many apps, how do you know what to choose from?

Well fret no more as here is WiseGuys breakdown of some of 2021’s top-rated Android apps to help you make your choices. 

1 – Tik Tok

It’s no secret that since the Covid-19 pandemic began the creative video app TikTok has skyrocketed in popularity with an estimated 12.9 million regular UK-based users alone and many more unregular users. 

The app itself has been downloaded over 2 billion times worldwide from both Google Play and Apple’s app store. 

For those who haven’t already heard of it, it’s a creative video platform where users can make short videos about anything using music, filters, and many other tools. These videos can then be shared privately or publicly depending on the user’s choice.

One thing to bear in mind if you are considering getting TikTok is that there have been potential security/ privacy risks with the app and multiple hearings in the US have taken place surrounding this matter.

Disney Plus is the latest in a long line of streaming sites to be released, however, it differs from the others out there as its categories focus only on Disney-owned productions. Anything from the original snow white to avengers end game is on the app and everyone is loving it.
