Google Apps (or GApps as they are commonly referred to) is a service from Google providing independently customizable versions of several Google products under one name. Most of the applications can now be found and updated via the Google Play Store. In some ROMs, the Google Apps are included. These are usually stock ROMs (the ROM comes pre-loaded with your phone at the time of purchase i.e. it’s a ROM by manufacturer). Many AOSP ROMs like Cyanogenmod and AOKP, do not include the Google Apps due to some Licensing issue. They are after all proprietary code owned by Google and hence not included in the Android Open Source Project.
This Package includes following Apps:
Google Play Store itself.
Google Sync (for adding and synchronizing Google accounts).
Google Backup Transport.
Google Voice Search.
We have classified Google Apps according to Android versions / ROM.
