While we all love Google apps, the Editors Choice awards haven’t been stacked with Google apps, although you will see them occasionally in the ‘You Might Also Like’ section if applicable.

If you’d like to get your app featured, there’s no nomination form, but Google has released a new Beta of their Play Book for Developers which showcases best practices for app development and distribution. The app features up to date news and videos relevant for developers so it may be worth a look.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
