In mid-December the research firm Nielsen brought out a list of the most popular Android apps based on the number of unique monthly users they had. Perhaps not too surprisingly Facebook scooped pole position, with over a hundred million unique users per month. Google apps swept the prize pool, with five of top ten apps (positions two through six: Google Search, Google Play, YouTube, Google Maps, Gmail). Instagram was seventh, followed by Apple Maps, Stocks and Twitter. That’s all fine and good for number crunchers, but what were your favorite apps of 2013?
