I guess that the best list with the available Android applications is offered by the Android site. Just enter the Android Market and see the available applications. The apps are presented even if they were released in 2009. From 2009 to 2011, the producer of that app might transform itself into a producer for the Apple platform. The app may be available on the Android Market site, but the app might not be available on this platform.
In order to avoid this, you should look when the app was updated last time. If you have browsed this Website until now, you probably know that here I present only applications that were released last year and that were updated this year. A producer which does not update their applications, it means that he or she does not care about their users. In these conditions, you should not buy or download apps from them.
The main page of the Android site shows you the paid applications, which are extremely popular and the free apps. The paid and the free apps are presented in number of 10. So, you get to see the first 10 paid apps and the first 10 free apps. The difference is that these apps are changing permanently, because the number of downloads that the app have daily is also changing. These charts are made in real-time and they depend on the number of downloads that the application has.
But on this site, you can see more than the charts in which there are included the paid and the free apps. You can see also the applications included in diverse categories, such as Communication, Books and Reference, Games, Weather and more. There are many apps and it took me an entire article just to write the names of the categories.
Make sure to enter the Android Market site to see them all. This is the most accurate and official source of the Android applications. And if you enter this site while you are using the Android device that you have, then the app can be installed. You cannot install an Android application on your computer. They only work on the Android-based smartphones and tablets.1
