Occasionally I like to just take a look through the Google Play Staff Picks to get an idea of what is actually popular with the people who curate the Google Apps environment. There are a number of games, live wallpapers and apps that are on their list, I have a bunch of them such as TerraTime, NFC Task Launcher and Evernote but I don’t have them all so why not see which ones have passed you by as well, head over to the Staff Picks list and check them out.

Found a good deal on an app you’d like to share? Are you an Australian developer with an app you would like reviewed? Or have you found a most expensive app on the Play Store? Let me know! You can tweet me or email me.
