Talking about apps, the App Store editors have identified four breakout trends in app culture for 2017. First of all, the introduction of AR (augmented reality) apps and games picked up pace this year, second they point out is the rise of real-time competitive gaming, third is the growing popularity of lifestyle apps (like Zomato or Big Basket), and finally increase in popularity of apps enabling photo and video editing. 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. Apple has credited Zombie Gunship Revenant AR, ARise, Filmr, Follow Me Dragon, as breakout trend app of 2017.

This year’s most popular app in India, however, is topped by WhatsApp, followed by YouTube, Facebook, PayTm, and Facebook Messenger.

Game apps, on the other hand, were dominated by Ludo King, 8 Ball Pool, Super Mario Run, Candy Crush Saga, Sniper 3D, and others.

Besides these apps that performed well through the year, App Store Editors have also picked their favorite apps of the year:

2017 iPhone App of the Year: Enlight Videoleap

2017 iPhone Game of the Year: Splitter Critters

2017 iPad App of the Year: Affinity Photo

Finally,the top movie of the year was Moana, followed by Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Wonder Woman. iTunes is leading the charge toward 4K HDR content, with most of the top charting movies already available in 4K HDR as well as classics and holiday favorites like the Harry Potter series, Home Alone, Office Christmas Party and Dr. Seuss How the Grinch Stole Christmas. In India, the top movie of the year have been bagged by last year s Dear Zindagi followed by Sully and Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (Hindi) and Raees.
