Apple highlights some of the best (and most popular) apps of 2019 1

Sayonara Wild Hearts was easily the most stylish of Apple Arcade’s first games, so its nod here feels well-warranted despite being a cross-platform title. And the same could be said for Hyper Light Drifter — it’s a little strange to see it take the crown for Best iPad game of the year when it debuted on PCs and Macs over three years ago. (Eva Gaspar, CEO of Abylight Studios, told Engadget they took on the project of adapting HLD for iOS after completing the Switch port last year.) Regardless, there are a handful of fascinating choices that even we hadn’t heard of before, so be sure to check out the full list below.

iPhone App of the Year: Spectre Camera (Lux Optics)

iPad App of the Year: Flow by Moleskine (Moleskine)

Mac App of the Year: Affinity Publisher (Serif Labs)

Apple TV App of the Year: The Explorers (The Explorers Network)

iPhone Game of the Year: “Sky: Children of the Light” (thatgamecompany)

iPad Game of the Year: “Hyper Light Drifter” (Abylight S.L.)

Mac Game of the Year: “GRIS” (Devolver / Nomada Studio)

Apple TV Game of the Year: “Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap” (DotEmu)

Apple Arcade Game of the Year: “Sayonara Wild Hearts” (Simogo)

As usual, Apple also provided details on the year’s most downloaded apps. You’d probably see many of these titles coming from miles away, but still — it’s interesting to see how certain apps, companies and platforms stack up over time. Take TikTok for instance: It’s an unabashed phenomenon now, albeit one that’s also causing concern in the upper echelons of multiple governments. This year, it was Apple’s fourth most downloaded free iPhone app — that’s a pretty big jump from last year, where it placed 16th.) And while YouTube, Instagram and Snapchat continue to claim the first, second and third place crowns respectively, Bitmoji dropped out of the top ten entirely this year. Guess those custom clothes weren’t enough to keep people hooked.
