Roughly a week after Google revealed the Android Play Store's top apps of the year, Apple has done the same, showcasing which of this year's most popular apps, music, movies, podcasts, and books have topped iOS users' lists in 2017. Each country has its own lists (except for the iBooks Store), and we're here focusing on the top charts in India and the US.

Apple has also published a "trends of the year" list, highlighting new trends and the apps that best show them off.

"App Store editors identify four breakout trends in app culture for 2017: the introduction of AR (augmented reality) apps and games, the rise of real-time competitive gaming, apps focused on mental health and mindfulness and apps transforming storytelling and reading", Apple said in a blog post. The app has a plethora of tools that provide a ground for layer-based video editing right on the iPhone. Splitter Critters, a game where you have to guide critters back to their spaceship, was chosen as the best iPhone game, and the hand-drawn miniature searching game Hidden Folks given the title of best iPad game. The game is available for free. It has also announced most popular apps, music, movies and more ...

The top free iPhone apps of the year included lots of usual suspects: Bitmoji, Snapchat, YouTube, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, Facebook, Google Maps, Netflix, Spotify, and Uber.
