How to create the perfect app

What Is Android Excellence on Google Play

July 5, 2017 by Gabriel Machuret

On a daily basis, app developers around the world are busting it out to create high quality Android apps and games. They strive to deliver amazing user experiences for the continuously growing diverse user base.  In fact, we’ve seen a significant increase in the way apps have been made on Google Play, quality wise.

As part of Google’s efforts to recognize the content (apps or games) on the Play Store, the app store has launched Android Excellence. It is actually a new feature of the app store that is tailored to showcase apps and games that deliver awesome user experiences on the Android market. Part of the criteria to make it to the Android Excellence list is that: the apps should be made or developed with Google’s best practices in mind, the apps have great design, technical performance, localization, and they’re optimized for ASO.
