Google has just released its ‘best stuff of the year’ on Google Play for 2014 based on the most downloaded content. It is not all that different from Apple’s list.

The Walking Dead, Frozen, and Fancy by Iggy Azalea all placed at the top of the list in their respective categories. However, the app position varied a bit from that of Apple’s list that is an editorial decision while Google focuses on downloads.

Google said top apps, including Duolingo (which made Apple’s list last year), Facebook, MyFitness Pal and Netflix. Google also said that Health and Fitness was the fastest growing app category.
