Apple announces best iPad app and game of the year

Apple announces best iPad app and game of the year

The Splitter Critters game - developed by Vancouver-based RAC7 Games - offers users the ability to split the world with a swipe of your finger and then rearrange it to guide critters back to their spaceship. Apple editors have chosen Affinity Photo as Best App of the Year for the iPad, and The Witness as Best Game of the Year.

Cupertino on Thursday unveiled the most popular apps, music, movies, TV Shows, books, and podcasts of 2017 across the App Store, Apple Music, iTunes, iBooks, and Apple Podcasts.

He also called for the opening of the roads and crossings for relief boats to reach the city and for commercial traffic. Saudi-led aircraft continued to fly overhead. "This latest violence couldn't come at a worse time".

Rather interestingly, the game of the year choices for iPhone and iPad are not freemium titles. The Witness was also selected as Game of the Year on the Mac App Store, where Aurora HDR 2018 won in the app category. Bitmoji, Snapchat, YouTube, Messenger and Instagram were the most popular free apps, while Super Mario Run, 8 Ball Pool, Snake VS Block, Ballz and Subway Surfers topped off the list of popular games.

This year, Apple has also introduced a new year-end section for the "trends of the year".

For Apple Music, the most popular album was Drake's More Life and Ed Sheeran snagged the most popular song with Shape of You. This includes different categories such as casual games, general apps, augmented reality and more. 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 unsurprisingly dominated in the TV realm, with NPR's Fresh Air topping podcast charts.
