It's now 2014 and I would like to see what tech bloggers see this year compared to 2011, 2012 and 2013 and I came up with this list in category based chronology. While are too pricey and expensive, we've all seen apps developers sort of immitating premium versions and come up with free versions then later upload it for everyone to enjoy. Note that it just takes the will and ability to search online plus the resources you need in order to know where to get it.

For size, Google Play for android has it's list as reviewed by users according to their funtionality and usability. All you have to do is type in the right search term and bingo! The most reviewed usually get the most download but you have to make sure to read those reviews as many android apps although most have been developed at the apps testing center doesn't guarantee freedom from virus or malicious software programs that can harm your iPhone or iPad or any other android gadget.

For quality assurance (although not 100% sure), go to the official website at the Apple apps store to download your applications here for whatever iOs version you have or you can read our post and find all the links to where you can get your iPad best free apps with paid app versions here.
