The end of 2021 has left us, as usual, various compilations with the best applications on Google Play, the most downloaded, those that have generated the most income, those with the best design … Even those that we have discovered in the team of Engadget Android. Now that we have just started the year, the time has come to make new resolutions and maybe one of them is to take a course related to Android.
If this is your case, here we collect a few of different levels that share two premises: they are free and in Spanish. Most of them, as you will see, are related to application programming and design. Who knows, maybe in a few months, one or more of your applications will sneak into the 2022 compilations.
