As we reach the arbitrary endpoint for another circle around the sun, Google has crunched the numbers and posted a list of the most downloaded ebooks, apps, music, and movies in Google Play.
No ebook app made the top of the app list, but when it comes to news sources the NYTimes beat out TMZ as the most downloaded app, with Forbes, The Verge, and the Huffington Post filling out the top 5.
- The New York Times
- Forbes Now
- The Verge
- The Huffington Post
The most downloaded ebook list is equally unsurprising, with 4 of the top 5 titles all tied to a movie released this year. The only one not tied to a movie was Fifty Shades of Grey, a perennial favorite.
- The Fault in Our Stars
- Fifty Shades of Grey
- Twelve Years a Slave
