Apple phasing out music downloads

As in previous years, the company's App Store editors have selected the best apps and games of the year for every software platform - iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS.

Apple on Thursday published its annual Best of 2017 list, highlighting the year's top apps, games, movies, TV shows, podcasts, books and more as determined by Apple employees. The Witness was also selected as Game of the Year on the Mac App Store, where Aurora HDR 2018 won in the app category.

But you're unlikely to guess the names of the 2017 iPhone and iPad App of the Year award recipients without cheating.

Snapchat's 2016 crown was snatched from them, but only just, by the popular Bitmooji app, which is owned by Snap.


The top 4 trends of the year according to Apple were AR, multiplayer games, mental and reading apps.

Meanwhile, Super Mario Run was the top free iPhone game of 2017, followed by 8 Ball Pool, Snake VS Block, Ballz, Word Cookies!, Subway Surfers, Episode ft. See the full charts in the App Store.

On Apple Music, Drake's "More Life" was the top album of the year and Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" was the top song. With no need to use special glasses, users seemed to have adapted quickly to the new trend which was brought about thanks to the iOS 11 update and worked well on all of Apple's recently launched iPhones and iPads. Apple said Taylor Swift's new album Reputation has already reached No. 3 on the 2017 U.S. top album chart, an impressive feat considering it was just released on November 10.

For movies, the top film was Moana followed by the Stars Was instalment Rogue One. Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, The Big Bang Theory and Rick and Morty topped the iTunes TV charts this year.
