Huawei to launch mobile service app store in Africa

In Canada, Affinity Photo has won the title of the iPad app of the year, whereas Old Man's Journey has surfaced as the iPad game of the year.

Cupertino on Thursday unveiled the most popular apps, music, movies, TV Shows, books, and podcasts of 2017 across the App Store, Apple Music, iTunes, iBooks, and Apple Podcasts.

The Best iPhone App and Game are the meditation app Calm and the puzzle game Splitter Critters.

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.

To make the classification of what its App Store users loved the most this year, Apple divided these into 4 major trends.

Snapchat's 2016 crown was snatched from them, but only just, by the popular Bitmooji app, which is owned by Snap. Apple has credited Zombie Gunship Revenant AR, ARise, Filmr, Follow Me Dragon, as breakout trend app of 2017. Bitmoji, Snapchat, YouTube, Messenger and Instagram were the most popular free apps, while Super Mario Run, 8 Ball Pool, Snake VS Block, Ballz and Subway Surfers topped off the list of popular games.

But you're unlikely to guess the names of the 2017 iPhone and iPad App of the Year award recipients without cheating.

Second, the App Store also saw a substantial rise in hyper-casual games.

For Apple Music, the most popular album was Drake's More Life and Ed Sheeran snagged the most popular song with Shape of You. 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.

Disney's Moana was the most-watched movie, with "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" and "Wonder Woman" coming in as runners-up.
