Apple has announced the App Store’s best apps and games of 2020.

The company recognised 15 apps and games that it said were essential for making life easier over the past year.

It said these applications were notable for their high quality, creative design, usability, and their use of innovative technology.

“This year, more than ever before, some of our most creative and connected moments happened in apps. This was thanks to the amazing work of developers who introduced fresh, helpful app experiences throughout the year,” said Apple Fellow Phil Schiller.

“Around the world, we saw remarkable efforts from so many developers, and these Best of 2020 winners are 15 outstanding examples of that innovation.”

“From helping us stay fit and mindful, to keeping our children’s education on track, to helping fight hunger, their impact was meaningful to so many of us,” Schiller said.
