Duolingo is amazing (Especially for being 100% FREE). Using it to learn Portuguese for my Brazilian girlfriend's family. Started speaking basic sentences to them :) Duolingo has a lot of content and is quite good at teaching. I love it :)
Yahoo weather is also great.
Over all, good list, but there are other quality/amazing apps that should be on that list as well imo.

IMO, the best app of 2013 is Xposed Framework.. It is, again IMO, unquestionably the most amazing app, giving even more freedom to android phones.

Google Keep for me...
using it every day...and it's integration with Google Now makes it great

Nokia Camera is truly, hands down, the best OEM smartphone camera app.
+1 to Google Keep too. Use to bring some small notebooks (as in paper and pen) coz I'm not satisfied with any other app. Cloud syncing is what really got me to keep Google Keep lol

Yep❕ Nokia Camera is very nice.. I forgot all about the stock WP camera app.. It's cool that Windows Phone lets you choose which camera app you want as default..
Another good one is Nokia Refocus.. It's amazing how well that app works for refocusing after the shot..

My bet would be:
1st: Lumia 1520
2nd: iPhone 5
3rd: Note 3
4th: Xperia Z1

5, 5s and 5c are all the same apart from one has a finger print scanner

Google Keep is pretty sweet, I just recently started using it.

there is a noticeable improvement in Android apps in terms of quality.
Now nobody can say iOS apps have better quality!!!
6 of them are on Android and 3 of them are Android exclusive!
