Apple has graced the world by releasing the list of the most downloaded apps from their App Store.
The Enlight Videoleap app, which is available for free download on the App Store, is a one-stop video editor that allows you to produce "artistic Hollywood-level films" in addition to some simple video memories. Apple says its app of the year for iPhone is Calm, a meditation and sleep app, and Splitter Critters is 2017's iPhone game of the year.
The company's iPad app of the year is Affinity Photo, a professional-level photo editing suite that can handle uncompressed RAW files and allows you to create an unlimited number of layers. The Witness was also selected as Game of the Year on the Mac App Store, where Aurora HDR 2018 won in the app category. Four breakout trends for this year for iOS devices include the introduction of augmented reality (AR) apps and games, the rise of real-time competitive gaming, apps focused on mental health and mindfulness, and apps transforming storytelling and reading.
