Google has released a list of apps that it considered to be the best apps launched for the Android platform in 2012. Some launched in 2012 while others issued popular updates this year.
The list, according to Google, “These represents "some of the best apps available in Google Play. Some launched in 2012 while others issued updates that achieved a great combination of utility, beauty and accessibility. Almost all of them are available globally and offer a great user experience on both tablets and phones. From excellent tools to objects of beauty, each of these applications represents the best of Google Play."
Google hasn’t assigned any particular rating to these apps and they aren’t listed in any chronological order either. The list of apps includes the following:
Evernote (Free): Stay on top of every element of your life, from anywhere. Take notes, capture photos and record memos with this amazing organizer.
Pinterest (Free): Take full advantage of your android device and set pins from anywhere using the built-in sharing system. Share and enjoy!

EXPEDIA HOTELS & FLIGHTS (Free): A beautiful and well-designed app that sets the bar for globally relevant travel tools with a rich and detailed tablet experience.
