  • Apple announces App of the Year, Game of the Year and Best of 2017 top charts

Apple has announced its editorial picks for the best apps, movies, TV shows, books, and podcasts available from its various online content stores.

In addition to the curated lists from its editors, Apple also shared the lists of the most downloaded apps and content of the year.

The top free iPhone apps of the year included lots of usual suspects: Bitmoji, Snapchat, YouTube, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, Facebook, Google Maps, Netflix, Spotify, and Uber.

Snapchat's 2016 crown was snatched from them, but only just, by the popular Bitmooji app, which is owned by Snap. In Canada, Affinity Photo has won the title of the iPad app of the year, whereas Old Man's Journey has surfaced as the iPad game of the year.




Here's the full list of the top 20 most downloaded apps, according to Apple.

With a press release and special sections featured on its digital storefronts this morning, Apple revealed the most popular apps, games, and media releases of 2017. This includes different categories such as casual games, general apps, augmented reality and more. Apple adds that in the US, Drake leads the Album of the year on Apple Music with "More Life". Taylor's Swift album Reputation is already the number 3 best-selling album for 2017, despite debuting only a few weeks ago.

Apple also listed the top movies in the Apple Store, with Disney's Moana ranks first followed by Wonder Woman, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in the third spot. Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, The Big Bang Theory and Rick and Morty topped the iTunes TV charts this year. If you've been keeping up with the App Store regularly throughout 2017, numerous top apps and games should look familiar to you, but there are some surprises as well.
