Best iPhone and iPad apps and games of 2017, according to Apple

Apple has revealed its 2017 best-of list of apps, games, music, books, and movies sold across the company's various online storefronts. It must be noted that Affinity is a paid-up-front app, while Calm is free. On the iPad, professional photo editing app Affinity Photo has been named App of the Year, with Jonathan Blow's The Witness winning Game of the Year; on the iPhone, Apple Design Award 2017 victor Splitter Critters was also named Game of the Year, while meditation and relaxation app Calm was chosen as the App of the Year. Both the games are not freemium titles.

App Store editors identify four breakout trends in app culture for 2017: the introduction of AR (augmented reality) apps and games, the rise of real-time competitive gaming, apps focused on mental health and mindfulness and apps transforming storytelling and reading. Video unsurprisingly dominated the iPad's Top Free charts with YouTube and Netflix in the two leading spots; on iPhone, Bitmoji and Snapchat were the most downloaded free apps of the year. On the other hand, Pritam's "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil", from the movie of the same title that was released last year, topped the tag of album of the year.

You can see all the top charts and recommendations in the App Store and iTunes Store now.

Cobe Li, Huawei's Cooperation and Alliance Director of Consumer Cloud Service Department, Southern Africa, said the APP store is not aiming to compete with the likes of Google Play, but aimed to supplement existing android Apps.

According to Apple, the top song of the year is The Shape of You by Ed Sheeran, while Drake's More Life is the top album. Taylor Swift's album "reputation" has already shot up to #3 on the 2017 USA top album charts, despite having only been available for a short period of time. The same Splitter Critters, which is the editor's choice in India, is the iPhone game of the year, whereas The Witness is the iPad game of the year in 2017.

For movies, the top film was Moana followed by the Stars Was instalment Rogue One. The top TV show download went to Game of Thrones and Walking Dead.
