Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle.

Save the Falling Eggs With Egg Catcher
Here at XDA, we love hearing about new developers releasing their first applications into the wild. In fact, not too long ago we brought you news of a developer’s debut app that has garnered some impressive feedback on Google Play.
