There are more than 3 million mobile apps alone in Google Apps which means that popularity of mobile applications has drastically increased over the past decade. This blog gives you a quick overview on Top 10 Most Downloaded Mobile Apps & Games in May 2018. Ok so let’s have a quick glance on them.
1.) Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is already extremely popular. You play as a character at Hogwarts. You explore the school grounds, attend classes, unlock characters, play a campaign, and more. It works quite well mechanically. Plus, it has voice actors from the movies. There is really only one downside to this game and it’s the freemium model. This game is very aggressive with its in-app purchase strategy and you wait for a lot of things in this game. The story line and activities are otherwise interesting and fun.
2.) Opera Touch
Opera Touch is Opera’s latest attempt at a browser app. Thankfully, this one is pretty decent. It features cross-platform syncing with its browser app, a feature that even Microsoft has at this point. However, unlike competitors, there is no login or account required. It uses a QR code that you scan with the app to your desktop version to sync the two together. There are also other features such as privacy browsing, a Fast Action Button, a search button, and more. It still needs work, but frankly, not that much. It’s a decent web browser.
3.) VPNhub – Secure, Private, Fast & Unlimited VPN

4.) Dungeon Hunter Champions
Dungeon Hunter Champions is the latest game in the popular series by Gameloft. This one is actually a MOBA. It features five versus five battles, online PvP, over 250 champions, guilds, leaderboards, and more. This distinguishes itself from others with a campaign mode as well. The game has a ton of content and it keeps you busy. There seems to be a small issue with bugs and crashes. Otherwise, people seem to like this one. It’s a freemium game, though, so do tread carefully.

6.) Jurassic World Alive
Jurassic World Alive is a new AR game similar to Pokemon Go. You explore the real world, collect dinosaurs from the movies, and battle them with other players. The dinosaurs scale to builds and it looks really cool. You also collect items from collection points, build a roster of dinosaurs, and collect DNA via drone flight. The game uses a very unusual $9.99 per month subscription instead of the usual freemium model. We’ll see how that works. This game is only available in certain parts of the world right now, but keep your eye out.
7.) Youtube Music
YouTube launched its new music service this month, kind of! The update rolled out about a week ago. However, many are still waiting for it. It’s only available in the US and many people in the US are on a waiting list. Anyway, the app features on-demand music streaming similar to Google Play Music, but also all of the YouTube Music features from before the update. Thus, it’s a sort of combination of the two. It has some issues and there are questions about whether or not it’ll be as good as Google Play Music in terms of selection and music quality. However, it’s too soon to tell if this is going to be great or not. We have our hands-on linked up just below if you want to see it.
8.) Horizon Explorer (ARCore)
Point your camera at a hill, village, lake or landmark on the horizon and Horizon Explorer will tell you what you’re aiming at. Name, distance, altitude and map of the pointed at landmark will be displayed. Hill Peak markers are overlaid on the view with Augmented Reality. Fly up high and see the terrain laid out below you to see what is over the hills around you, and get the lay of the land, then see the scale-model 3D map that you can walk around to find out what’s behind hills, or explore the terrain for anywhere in the world.
9.) Paladins Strike
Paladins Strike is another new MOBA game. This one has shooter elements as well. You play five versus five battles with a selection of 15 champions. It’s the standard MOBA stuff. You capture points and beat your opponents. The game also features other game modes like Siege and Juggernaut. It helps keep things fresher for longer, but it all revolves around the same basic mechanics. The game had a rough start with bugs and small issues. They seem to have overcome these difficulties and people are enjoying the game quite a bit now.
10.) Animal Super Squad
Animal Super Squad is a new adventure-platformer with some puzzle elements. You roll an animal through a course and physics takes over. The game features a variety of playable characters, a bunch of levels, and more. It’s a goofy game that doesn’t take itself too seriously. There isn’t much else to say about it, really. It’s entertaining, occasionally funny, and it’s not a freemium game. You can get it for $4.99 with no additional in-app purchases or advertisements.
