The end of the year brings about a lot of reflection. Whether your giving thanks for blessings you’ve enjoyed in 2017 or brainstorming your resolution for an even better 2018, thinking back on what made your year great is an annual tradition on par with taking your Christmas lights down in the middle of January. And, as is tradition, Apple is doing a little self-reflection of its own by announcing the top 20 iOS apps of 2017.
With the launch of the iPhone X and the holidays fast approaching, you know that iOS app usage is on the way up. People around the world are clambering for their chance to unlock their phone with their faces, which has led to more apps and more usage than ever before. And while the top 20 list if typically filled with names everyone recognizes, the number one spot went to a newcomer: Bitmoji.
