When Apple published its lists of top free and paid iPhone apps of 2010, the Internet got to talking about whether the apps in question deserved the honor. Others argued about apps that they felt should have been on the lists but weren't, and of course, users of other smartphone platforms wanted to get in on the action too.
We here at Ars felt the same way—we use a number of different mobile apps every day that have earned their way onto our home screens. So, we decided to make our own top 10 lists of apps: one for iOS and one for Android (don't worry, each list was made only by the people who use that platform). Starting with Android, here are our favorite apps of 2010, in no particular order.
