Each year Apple makes its own compilation of the best content published and downloaded in its services. The best album of Apple Music, the best book of iBooks, the best movie of iTunes, the best podcast of Podcasts and… the best apps and games of the App Store. With this we can get an idea of how the year has gone and especially detect different trends that have occurred and will occur.
What apps and games have triumphed in 2017
According to Apple, this year the publishers of the App Store have found four important trends in apps and games. That is, four types of apps and games that have triumphed during 2017. These four trends have been augmented reality, multiplayer games, apps focused on sustainable living and drawing and art apps.
The four best apps and games according to the publishers of the App Store are:
- Best app for iPhone in 2017: Enlight Videoleap
- Best game for iPhone in 2017: Splitter Clitters
- Best iPad app in 2017: Affinity Photo
- Best game for iPad in 2017: The Witness

Next year it will be interesting to see if the trend of apps and most downloaded games changes. Until now we did not have the recommendations of the publishers of the App Store so persistent. With the new iOS 11 App Store, things have changed, and many apps and games are gaining popularity thanks to Apple’s promotion. Will we see any changes in the most downloaded apps and games? Overcoming social networks in the top 5 will be difficult but at least we can see in the top games Clash Royale, Clash of Clans, Candy Crush and the like.
