Android OS is today the market leader in Mobile OS, nearly 1 Billion android devices have been activated till date and is increasing very quickly as more and more people are migrating from Symbian, Blackberry and other Feature phone platform’s. Apps today are surely one major factor that draws a person towards a new mobile phone and android apps performance and ecosystem is second to none, it overshadows Windows Phone OS and Blackberry 10 by huge margin, although iOS is an altogether different story.

Now if you have got an Android phone, the first thing you would want to do is to get new android apps. There are pretty much a free android app for everything you want but in some cases the free android app would just not give you all the functionality that it’s paid counterpart offers. Also in some cases you would just not be able to find a free app that offers the features you are looking for and in those cases you have no other option but to buy a paid app.
The process of choosing the best paid android apps is typically very simple as the Top Paid section would pretty much let you know all the apps that you need. But the problem here is that there are 10’s of new android apps that are launching daily but in some cases they are just not able to get into the top 10 or top 50 section and are pretty much ignored but mind you they still do their work extremely well and the reason for them not being able to get into the top 10 list is because of smaller audience or lesser publicity.
