Apple reveals 'Best of 2017' apps and games

Apple announces App of the Year, Game of the Year and Best of 2017 top charts

For iPad, Apple has chosen Affinity Photo, the desktop-class photo editor, and the game The Witness.

Super Mario Run has been named the most popular free game of the year on Apple's App Store. While you're at it, we also have our lists of the best iPhone apps and the best iPhone games as well.

Apple also announced the biggest trends of 2017 and the most popular apps, music, movies and more.

There's some predictable overlap between the two tech titans' lists of 2017 top sellers, as Game of Thrones, for instance, dominates both Apple and Google's latest yearly TV show charts.

"Hillbilly Elegy" topped the nonfiction charts, leading a wave of titles on current events and politics.

If you want to see the full lists, just load up iTunes or the App Store and you'll see it all on the front page. NPR's "Fresh Air" remained in the top podcast spot for 2017, with Apple noting that daily news podcasts like New York Times' "The Daily" and NPR's "UP First" also made the charts, along with true crime podcasts being popular with listeners. This features the most interesting and important apps, games and trends in app culture. The Witness was also selected as Game of the Year on the Mac App Store, where Aurora HDR 2018 won in the app category. But it's not all about the movies; throughout the year, iTunes has pushed for more 4K HDR content on its service, and most of the top films in the list are now available in stunning 4K HDR, as well as holiday hits like Harry Potter, Home Alone, Office Christmas Party and Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Apple said Taylor Swift's new album Reputation has already reached No. 3 on the 2017 USA top album chart, an impressive feat considering it was just released on November 10.

You can see all the top charts and recommendations in the App Store and iTunes Store now.
