The year is nearly over, and it's time for a little reflection. Harambe. The election.
And the top Android apps, of course.
Google released its annual list of the top Android apps on Thursday. The list is split into the top 5 apps and the top 5 games.
Google ranked the apps by "top trending," which is a mixture of downloads and popularity at the time the apps were released. These aren't the most-downloaded apps of the year, just the ones that were trending the most.
Check them out below. Don't worry. Pokémon GO made the list.

Not all Android phones come with a readily accessible emoji keyboard. Emoji Keyboard Pro fixes that.
