Hello and welcome back to another week of Google Play Weekly and 5 more apps you shouldn’t miss! A lot happened around the Google Play Store this week. HBO released a bunch of shows to the Play Store, including Game of Thrones and The Newsroom. Also, Final Fantasy 6 for iOS and Android was formally announced, Koushik Dutta got AirPlay working on Android, and Google Chrome has a hidden feature to screencast Android devices. Check out the video above to learn more and here are the 5 Android apps you can’t miss this week!
First on our list this week is the release of Clash of Clans. This extremely popular title started on iOS and has finally made its Android debut. It’ll no doubt be downloaded by millions of people worldwide and if you’re into gaming, we recommend you not miss out on this. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s an epic strategy game with online multiplayer capabilities.
Yahoo! Has been wildly busy fixing itself over the last year or so and while they still have a long way to go, they have improved dramatically. Their email app just got a big update that allows inbox theming and gives users of their email platform 1TB of storage to do with as they please. This also extends to their Flickr users. We’re not saying you should leave gmail but if you have a Yahoo account, now is a good time to open it back up.
Digg has been working hard to improve their mobile platform. A slew of recent updates have improved things quite a bit with their latest update allowing for only unread items to show up in feeds. It’s one of the most popular news apps out there and if you’re looking for a new one, you could do a lot worse than Digg.
Skype was recently updated to include a full, tablet optimized version of the app so if you’ve been wanting a better Skype experience on a tablet, now’s your chance to enjoy it. Included in the recent update were video quality and accessibility improvements. Most people on Android opt for Hangouts, but if you are a Skype user, the app just got a lot better.
If you’re one of our India viewers, I have some good news for you. Amazon has updated their Android app to include Amazon.in so if you haven’t picked it up yet, now’s the time to do so. Other new improvements are notifications for subscribe & save orders and notifications for Gold Box Deal of the Day promotions. It’s one of the best shopping apps you can get.
Thanks again for stopping by and don’t forget to check out next week’s episode. Were there any awesome apps out this week that you think should’ve been added to the list? Let us know down below in the comments.

Joseph, I think you used the wrong photo for Digg.
lol, Discus is weird. I deleted this comment after the photo was fixed, and now my comment is shown as Guest.
Weird, thanks for the heads up Tuan!
That always seems to happen when you delete comments. Weird :|
That new Yahoo Mail looks nice. I gotta update it now.
Hi, Joseph Hindy
Yes, you are right. I use these five android apps daily basis. Recently yahoo has changed it’s mail themes and skype updated tablet optimized version of the app.
Yahoo! Mail has been the worst in terms of security. Either it is attacked more often, it is less able to manage attacks, or both…closed accounts, never to reopen.
Clash of Clans , So cool.
Shameless self-promotion, but definitely check out Mobie for an app you’ll use every day – combines 6 apps in 1 – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.innopath.mobilemd&hl=en
