Fast like a Fox is up for several awards

The Google Play Store offers somewhere in the region of 2 million apps, which makes it hard to separate the wheat from the chaff.

To make it easier to celebrate the best of Play Store, Google has announced the Google Play Awards, which will showcase five nominees across 10 award categories.

The nominees have been selected by a “panel of experts” on the Google Play team, using criteria like app quality, innovation, and a recent launch or major update.

The winners from each category will be announced the the Google I/O developer conference next month.

“Google Play has sent tremendous growth over the past year, reaching more than one billion Android users across 190 countries,” says Purnima Kochikar, Director of Apps and Games Business Development for Google Play.

Kochikar continues: “As a way to recognise our incredible developer community and highlight some of the best apps and games, we’re kicking off our first-ever Google Play Awards.”
