If you need more apps to download, Apple also published its top charts for 2019, detailing the most popular apps and games across the free and paid categories. On the iPhone, the app of the year went to Spectre Camera (developed by Lux Optics). In short, the app uses computer vision tech to auto-detect the kind of scene you're shooting, stabilize the frame, and capture a long exposure by stacking multiple frames together in the same way most long-exposure apps on smartphones operate.
On the iPad, Flow by Moleskine won the best app of the year, offering an "elegant digital notebook" experience for iPad owners.More news: Boost Mobile Black Friday 2019 Deals List

Apple has named its picks for the best apps and games of 2019.
Apple's Phil Schiller said, "The 2019 App Store Best Apps and Games winners reflect our global desire for connection, creativity and fun". For instance, in gaming, it was all about reimagining blockbusters. The 2019 App Trend of the Year was 'Storytelling Simplified,' with Apple featuring apps focused on telling stories through a wide range of media, spotlighting Anchor, Canva, Unfold, Steller, Spark Camera, Over, and Wattpad. Apple does have a fair point on that and cited examples of games like Call of Duty Mobile, Minecraft Earth, Assassin's Creed Rebellion.More news: OPEC+ expected to deepen output cuts to 1.5 mln bpd -JPM
