Below is a visual released a few days ago by Google in which it featured some of the most popular games, movies, music, news and books of 2014. In the education section, Duolingo topped the list. This is a great web tool and mobile app for learning a new language. It provides a plethora of translation activities through which learners get to practice their new language. Duolingo gamifies language learning by using a system of rewards for good achievements. It also gives learners the opportunity to translate real-world texts in the language they are learning and thus help other learners. A few months ago I featured Duolingo in a list that includes 3 of the top apps for learning a new language.
In the gaming section, Candy Crush Saga was the most downloaded title of 2014 followed by Don't Top The white Title. And in the category of Movies and TV, Frozen was chosen as the movie of the year and Walking Dead as the show of the year. The book of the year is The Fault in Our Stars.
