The most (and least) popular devices used to browse Android Police in 2020

Back in 2017, we published a list of the most and least popular smartphones and tablets used to browse Android Police (the site you're reading right now). Many of you loved seeing where your favorite devices ended up in the rankings, but we never published followup posts for subsequent years — until now! We're back with a new installment for 2020, with more fun facts about the kinds of phones and tablets our readers use.

These are the browser extensions the Android Police staff can’t live without

Here at Android Police, we live and breathe in our desktop browsers. Almost everything we do from writing, researching, and communicating happens within the confines of our computer screens (or on our phones, naturally). Over the years, we found quite a few ways to make our lives easier with extensions, both for our jobs and our personal lives. For this collection, we want to share all of the extensions with you that help us manage our lives and our workday.

Android Police wants you (to write for us) — apply today

I've worked at Android Police for a decade now (well, I will as of the end of the month!), and I'm proud of the team we've built here over the years. AP has taken great care of me, and it's a place I look forward to working every day. Once again, we're looking to grow that team, and are hiring for a number of roles. I'll let the listings do the rest of the talking.

These are the apps the Android Police staff can't live without

We've covered the best new Android apps and games for years, but we've only occasionally talked about our personal favorites. It's high time we did a roundup of the Android Police staff's top applications, don't you think?

For this roundup, some of the fine writers at Android Police have selected their favorite Android apps. We've excluded applications and services that are incredibly popular, like Gmail or Spotify, in favor of software that might be new to some people.

Android Police now has a newsletter—subscribe here

Newsletters are once again all the rage, and we've finally decided Android Police should have one. We'll be starting with a weekly email every Friday morning rounding up the biggest, best, and most interesting stories on AP. Our first newsletter went out this morning (you can read it here), and we're curious to hear your feedback. While we've settled on the current format for now (news, analysis, a deal or two, and our big stories), we're happy to take suggestions as to what you'd like to see in the newsletter, or what could make it a more compelling and interesting read for you.

Come write for Android Police — we've got jobs!

Come write for Android Police — we've got jobs!

Android Police has grown a lot in the nine-plus years I've been here, and this year will mark a decade the site itself has been around. It's hard to believe where we are now compared to then, having since launched APK Mirror, completely redesigned the site, and introduced a number of new faces on the team. People I hired years ago - like Corbin, Ryne, Scott, and Richard - are still "the new guys" in my mind, even though they're all people I've come to trust intrinsically to do the work we rely on here every day. And that work isn't shrinking - it's growing, a lot.

Accelerated Mobile Pages, or 'AMP' for short, is a project Google has been working on for a few years that makes it easier for sites to create faster mobile experiences. You've probably seen most of your favorite sites add support for AMP over the past year or two, and now you can count Android Police (your favorite site, obviously) among them!
