In the month of October 2016, tons of new apps and games hit the Google Play Store. Here are the top trending apps and games of the month.

There are dozens of big app and game announcements every month, and it can be pretty difficult to keep track of them all. Application developers are constantly trying to create ‘The Next Big Thing’, but a lot of the time the finished products get lost in the congested app space.

If you’ve been curious to know which apps and games were most popular last month, we’ve got you covered. Here are the apps that were trending on Google Play in October 2016:

  • Flipp: An essential app for your weekly shopping, Flipp helps save you time and money by offering daily deals and discounts for all your favorite stores.
  • ShareTheMeal: This app, sponsored by the United Nations, helps end global hunger by giving users an opportunity to share food with a child in need.
  • Anchor: This app offers a new way to broadcast user-created radio segments on a social platform. Anchor lets you share audio clips with a global audience or listen to jokes and commentary from other users around the world.
  • LinkedIn Learning: LinkedIn is now offering Android users access to its library of education content for free for a limited time during their “Free Week of Learning.”
  • CNN Mobile: If you’re looking to keep up to date with the 2016 elections, the CNN Mobile app is for you.
