Web: Figuring out which apps to trust is tough. If you use ratings to help you out, you can now filter your search results by ratings on the Google Play Store.
Whenever you search for an app on your browser, a drop down menu will appear. By default it will say "All Ratings", but you can click it to filter your results to "4+ stars". Those are the only two options.
We still recommend thinking critically about an app before you download, instead of relying completely on reviews to make your decision. The new Google Play feature can still help weed out the really bad apps, though, so you can focus on the ones that might be worth considering. It also helps avoid knockoffs and find the legitimate apps more quickly.
