Huawei to launch mobile service app store in Africa

The Cupertino giant recently unveiled its App Store Best of 2017, which revealed particularly interesting trends when it came to games and apps on its App Store.

On the iPhone, health and fitness app Calm was crowned the top overall app while Splitter Critters earned game of the year honors.

But you're unlikely to guess the names of the 2017 iPhone and iPad App of the Year award recipients without cheating. The Witness was also selected as Game of the Year on the Mac App Store, where Aurora HDR 2018 won in the app category. While virtual reality remains locked to a niche audience, Apple opening up the flood gates with iOS 11 and a plenty of AR apps and games for new and recent iOS-powered devices surely seem to have increased the adoption of AR as a practical and everyday technology.

Snapchat's 2016 crown was snatched from them, but only just, by the popular Bitmooji app, which is owned by Snap.

Super Mario Run tops the most downloaded games chart, followed by 8 Ball Pool, Snake VS Block, Ballz, Word Cookies and Subway Surfers.

To make the classification of what its App Store users loved the most this year, Apple divided these into 4 major trends. Ed Sheeran's Shape of You, meanwhile, ranked as this year's top song. Taylor's Swift album Reputation is already the number 3 best-selling album for 2017, despite debuting only a few weeks ago.

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

A Star Wars Story and Wonder Woman were 2017's top three films in both iTunes and the Play Store. "Game of Thrones" unsurprisingly dominated the iTunes TV charts, followed by "The Walking Dead", HBO's "Big Little Lies", NBC's "This Is Us", PBS's "Victoria" and FX's "The Americans".
