Apple Reveals 2017's Most Popular Apps, Music, Movies, and More

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. In line with their observation, even on Google, the most popular app in 2016 and 2017, has been a photo editing app, focused on selfies.

"Huawei's consumer mobile services in Africa will include an APP store for locally developed games, music, movies, books and other content; we are also planning to launch African themes and cloud storage", says Cobe Li, Huawei's Cooperation and Alliance Director of Consumer Cloud Service Dept, Southern Africa. Affinity Photo is also a paid-up front app although Calm is free with an optional subscription. The rest of the list was mostly similar to past year.

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. Next was Snapchat, which was the top app previous year.

Last year, Pokemon Go was a new entry to the top 10, but this year, it failed to make it to the list of the free top apps and even in the free games category, which is led by Super Mario Run.

It's also hardly shocking to see crowd pleasers and essentials like Bitmoji, Snapchat, YouTube, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, Google Maps or Netflix among the iOS App Store's most popular 2017 apps. Apps that come pre-loaded on devices, like core Apple apps such as Apple Music and Pages, are not counted in Apple's year-end charts.

To begin with, on Apple Music, Drake topped album of the year with More Life, while Ed Sheeran's Shape of You got top song honors.

Moana was the top movie of the year, followed by Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Wonder Woman, Apple said.

Drama is the genre dominating the iTunes TV charts this year, with favorites like "Game of Thrones" and "The Walking Dead" topping the year.
