Verizon Serving Up The Best Apps in Android, iOS

With well over 1.5 million mobile apps available in both the Apple App Store and the Google Play store today, there are certainly more than a few apps out there that may interest you. But finding them has become a significant challenge.

“Where can customers go to get reliable information on what apps to try and how they will affect their device?” is a question posed today in the Verizon Wireless News Center.

Fortunately, it’s a question that Verizon is also trying to answer for its millions of app-using wireless subscribers.

Verizon Wireless has launched two online tools to help – 20 Must-Have Apps and Android App Reviews by Verizon. These tools are designed to provide honest, accurate feedback on the most popular applications available in order to protect and enhance a customer’s wireless experience.

Not surprisingly, the “Top 20 Must-Have Apps” serves up exactly what you might expect – a helpful list of Google and Apple apps that offer a “best in class” experience and will help wireless users get the most out of their mobile device.

“If a customer is looking for sports, travel, family, fitness, video, or finance apps, this is the place to start their search. The list is updated at least four times a year,” the carrier says.

“Android App Reviews by Verizon,” on the other hand, looks at the top 50 Google apps (25 Top Free and 25 Top Paid) based on based on their rankings in Google Play over a 30-day period.

“Verizon experts review the apps based on their affect on battery life, security, and data usage,” the announcement reads.
