The Aptoide store has witnessed a baby boom of apps lately, and if you scroll through the App Store you'll be able to find all the apps and all the versions of those same apps that can cater to your every need. The problem is: there are just too many of them and, even with Editor's Choice, highlighted apps and all the bundles there to help you find your way, it's just humanly impossible to find the needle in the haystack.
And that's why we here at Aptoide decided to welcome Web Summit 2016 in Lisbon, Portugal with a bang 💥 and came up with the Aptoide App Awards. Like you, we want the best apps for our Android phones and we want you to have 'em all.
Ok, so now that we know all about the 10 finalist gaming apps for Aptoide App Awards, we can finally announce our pick of the best non-game apps, and that includes Android applications for social networking, travel, news, photography, productivity and more.
Flipagram, Animoto, and Storehouse, step aside! Storyo splices your favorite memories together into videos, automagically, from your slideshow collection of photos. You’ll have your own videoshop to create stories from your experiences in seconds with just a few clicks. We absolutely loved it - it's like reliving your fondest memories over and over again.
Become the next Tiger Woods and hit the perfect drive with Hole 19, a life-saver for any golf player and a must-have for golf lovers. The offline maps are great and the scorecard is just flawless. This is like having your personal caddie in your pocket - what else could we ask for?
Saving has never been so easy. This one if for all the shopaholics out there. KuantoKusta is Portuguese for "How much does it cost" and it compares prices of thousands of products in several stores throughout the country, allowing you to search by brand, product reference or name. It also allows for the creation of a "favorite" list, where you can keep up with prices of your most-desired-but-can't-afford-yet products.
You know when you go to bed at night and you forget to turn off the lights? Isn't that the worst? With Muzzley, no more.

No vouchers, no problem. Mygon is the most complete local guide where you can find promotions, information, photos, reviews and price lists of thousands of restaurants, spas, hairdressers and so-much-more. This is like an all-in-one solution, especially for those people who are always running out of space on their phones (er, aren't we all?).
If you like it, then you should put a song on it. MusicYou is an app that allows you to add music to your pictures and videos and customise it all with filters. It's like Instagram + Spotify = Match Made in Heaven. No more sending boring photos and long texts, just say it with music.

10.Médicos & Farmácias

You can even have your doctors prescriptions delivered to your doorstep, without having to step out of the house. Super handy when you're sick, right?
