Welcome back to Google Play Weekly! Here are the Android apps headlines:

Now let’s check out a few trending Android apps from the last week.


Topeka android apps
Topeka

[Price: Free]
First up this week is an app called Topeka. This is actually a ChromeOS app that has been turned into an Android app. It features full on material design which looks outstanding unless you hate color. It’s a quiz game and so far people seem to like it. Do beware that it is a little US-centric but it is totally free so it can’t hurt to try.

Instapaper Android apps
Instapaper

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Instapaper is a mixture between Evernote and Pocket. It lets you save web pages to your device for offline reading but it does so in a text-only, minimalist kind of way so you can read things without being distracted. The app used to cost money but it has now gone free with in app purchases so if you want to try it out, you can do it free of charge.

star wars commander android apps
Star Wars: Commander

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Star Wars: Commander was released recently and it’s essentially a Clash of Clans clone but with Star Wars characters and it’s made by Disney. As clones go this one is pretty good but we probably wouldn’t be talking about it if it didn’t contain the words Disney and Star Wars. It is free to play and there are some extra things you wouldn’t get in Clash of Clans so if you want a little different, check this out.

beach buggy racing android apps
Beach Buggy Racing

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Beach Buggy Racing is the latest game out of Vector Unit which also does the Riptide GP series racing games which we at Android Authority are big fans of. In this kart-style racing game you’ll can race friends or alone in large, colorful, and engaging tracks. It’s free to play with in app purchases and I am of the mind that everyone should have at least one Vector Unit racing game on their device. Why not this one?

leo's fortune android apps
Leo’s Fortune

[Price: $2.99]
Last and certainly not least this week is Leo’s Fortune. The game made its return to the headlines this week after it slashed its price from $4.99 to $2.99. If you haven’t picked this game up, it’s one of the best platformer adventure games out there with wonderful graphics and fun game play. There aren’t any in app purchases and this really is a good deal for this game.
