Apple Reveals 'Best of 2017' Apps, Books, Games, Movies, and TV Shows

Apple Reveals 'Best of 2017' Apps, Books, Games, Movies, and TV Shows

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 says the title "radiates imagination and originality".

Moving to the iPad, Apple has named excellent photo editing app Affinity Photo as app of the year, while the title for best game goes to first person puzzle-exploration game The Witness. 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. Affinity Photo is also a paid-up front app although Calm is free with an optional subscription. Google's YouTube was at third (up from sixth in 2016), followed by Facebook Messenger (at second last year), Instagram (same as last year), Facebook (same as last year), Google Maps (same as last year), Netflix (ninth in 2016), Spotify (up from tenth) and Uber (new entry in the top 10).

You'll find the full list on the App Store along with longer lists of the top paid and free apps and games of 2017. That's even more impressive when you consider China is already the top market for iOS App Store consumer spending. This features the most interesting and important apps, games and trends in app culture.
