This year saw the release of iOS 13, Mac OS Catalina, the AirPods 2, and let’s not forget the brand new iPhone 11, so it’s safe to say Apple had quite a successful 2019. With only a few weeks left, Apple have continued their tradition of releasing a list of the best apps and games for the year. The ‘best of 2019 report” recognises the best applications and games in terms of functionality, design, and how productive they are for users.
Here’s a list of the most important apps of 2019.
iPhone App of the Year: Spectre Camera by Lux Optics
Spectre Camera is an AI-powered camera that relies on a scene detection algorithm that allows users to capture light trails in the low-light conditions.
iPad App of the Year: Flow by Moleskine
Flow is a notebook and drawing app which offers users the ability to create infinite width documents, customizable gestures, and split-screen support which is especially useful on iPad OS.
Mac App of the Year: Affinity Publisher by Serif Labs
Affinity Publisher is a publishing application made with magazines, brochures, and repot readers in mind. Affinity offers features such as double-page spreads, intelligent scaling tools along with other features all meant to improve the reader’s experience.
Apple Arcade Game of the Year: Sayonara wild hearts by Simogo
Sayonara wild hearts is an arcade exclusive with an emphasis on going fast, dance-offs, and collecting hearts. At a surface level, Sayonara might seem like a higher quality version of Subway surfer, but as you progress the game evolves into a story about love, self-belief and never giving up, and let’s not forget the fact that the story is narrated by Queen Latifah.
