It's not too hard to find the bestselling titles on the Google Play Store, but what about the highest-quality examples?
The Quality Index (or Qi, for short) trawls the web for game and app reviews from the world’s most respected online and print sources, including Pockett, Pocket Gamer, Gamezebo, and Android Rundown.
Qi then collates the critiques, applies a magic formula, and delivers a single definitive Qi score for each Android game and app.
Links to all the individual reviews are included, too, for those readers wanting more detail.
