Amazingly Facebook, Instagram, Google Maps and YouTube regularly land the top spots in the App Store but the order is less expected. Facebook’s Slandered app, Messenger which has an average App Store rating of only three stars landed the second spot, where as the summer’s blockbuster Pokémon Go came at number three.

Snapchat was also in list last year but was only ranked number 5. Trivia Crack, which stood number one in 2015, didn’t even make the top 10 this year.

The list jotted by Apple is as following:

  1. Snapchat
  2. Messenger
  3. Pokémon GO
  4. Instagram
  5. Facebook
  6. YouTube
  7. Google Maps
  8. Pandora
  9. Netflix
  10. Spotify Music

Apple also announced its editorial picks for best apps of the year. Photo app Prisma landed best iPhone app of the year while Clash Royale was named best iPhone game. All of Apple’s best app picks can be found in the App Store, with similar lists available naming the best music, TV shows, movies, and books in the iTunes and iBooks Stores.
