Traps n' Gemstones was the run-away winner at the top of the July Qi Android game chart. It's a lovingly crafted adventure-platformer set in a sprawling pyramid packed full of interconnected spatial puzzles. Next up, at number two, is Wayward Souls, an ambitious roguelike action-RPG with random dungeons and countless imaginatively drawn monsters to slay. There are monsters of a different, altogether cuter kind at number six. Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake from Cartoon Network is a charming puzzler that expertly borrows much of its look and feel from Nintendo's Zelda series. Down at number seven, finally, we have Wave Wave - the latest example of the twitch gaming craze that's sweeping through mobile. Dodge up and down in a strikingly jagged world, and stay alive for as long as possible.
Security is particularly important to Android users, which is probably why 360 Security - Antivirus FREE takes the number one spot on the July Qi Android app chart. It provides protection from viruses and privacy risks for free. At number three we have the recently updated Solo Launcher, one of the slickest and most popular new launchers for Android. It transforms your Android navigation experience into an attractive and highly customisable one. Down at number four we have Fleksy Keyboard, which is one of the fastest custom keyboards on the Google Play Store. It helped break the Guinness World Record for fastest typing earlier in the year, you know. Parallels Access, at number five, lets you access your Windows or Mac applications and files from your Android devices, wherever you are in the world. Never be caught without that important file or document again!
We'll continue to provide an updated listing each and every month, together with a round-up of the year. For all the up-to-date information on which Android games, apps, and publishers are reviewing best, head on over to the Android Quality Index now.
