Apple Reveals Top Apps, Music, Movies, TV Shows Of 2017

But you're unlikely to guess the names of the 2017 iPhone and iPad App of the Year award recipients without cheating. Apple says the title "radiates imagination and originality". First of all, the introduction of AR (augmented reality) apps and games picked up pace this year, second they point out is the rise of real-time competitive gaming, third is the growing popularity of lifestyle apps (like Zomato or Big Basket), and finally increase in popularity of apps enabling photo and video editing. While game and app picks can also be viewed on the respective Games and Apps front pages, it's in the Today tab that Apple was able to put higher emphasis on each victor and tell the story behind it.

Rather interestingly, the game of the year choices for iPhone and iPad are not freemium titles.

On Apple's annual list of the most downloaded free iTunes apps of the year, the Bitmoji app, owned by Snap, bagged the top spot.

Apart from the leaders, the list of 10 most popular apps of 2017 in India includes WhatsApp Messenger, YouTube, Facebook, Paytm, Messenger, SHAREit, Instagram, Google Maps, Uber, and Hotstar.
