Continuing the trend, Apple has released a list of apps that are popular in certain ways to honor them before the public.

This year, the social category has the BeReal app standing at the top and GoodNotes 5 being as the best iPad app. Further, Wordle stands as the top free app in the US, while Minecraft stands No.1 in the paid section. Here’s more;

Top Apps in the Apple Ecosystem

Like every year, Apple shared the list of top apps in 2022 across all the categories and its devices. While some are expected in the list, some are truly surprising. BeReal, for instance, getting the top spot in a social category is an interesting find.

This is probably because of its typical mechanism of asking users to post pictures taken at random times – thus being real. The France-based app even alerts the users at random times of the day to do so and has support for capturing photos with both front and rear cameras simultaneously.

And similar to last year’s “Apps that brought us together”, Apple introduced a new section this year – called “Cultural Impact”. This category includes apps like How We Feel, Home Stories Project, etc., which have been culturally impactful.
