We got some exciting news today – ViewRanger has once again been named as one of the top apps on Google Play after receiving the prestigious Android Excellence award.
This is the latest in a long line of awards for our awesome outdoor navigation app, with Android Excellence recognising a carefully hand-picked selection of the highest quality apps and games on Google Play, with a strong focus on great design, engaging user experience and strong app performance.
A total of 22 apps and 16 games received the Android Excellence Award this month, and we were among just three apps highlighted as Google’s top recommendations for January 2018. View the full announcement here.
This is the second time in less than six months we've been honoured by Google Play, having previously received the Editors’ Choice award in August 2017.
“Kicking off the new year, we're excited to welcome our latest group of Android Excellence apps and games,” said Kacey Fahey, Developer Marketing at Google Play. “These awardees represent some of the best experiences and top performing apps and games on the Play Store.”
With an estimated 3.5 million apps currently available in the Google Play Store, this award is a further endorsement of the huge strides we've made in recent years. The release of our Skyline augmented reality in 2016 was followed by major updates to our wearable apps in 2017, along with a full design refresh last summer.
With millions of explorers around the world now using ViewRanger to plan, navigate, record and share their outdoor adventures, these are really exciting times for the company. Millions of routes and tracks have now been recorded in the app, which is used and trusted by 300 Search and Rescue teams across Europe, North America and Canada – a glowing testimony to the dedication, innovation and motivation of the ViewRanger team.
And there’s plenty more to come in 2018!
