Apple released its annual list of best applications and games of 2020 on Wednesday. With the pandemic dictating several terms this year, the "Best of 2020" winners this year include a number of apps that catered to the issue and helped people transition to a life spent at home.
App Store editors unanimously select the winners, judging them on the app's quality, creative design, usability, interface, among other things. To put things in perspective, Wakeout! - a home workout application - won the iPhone App of the year, while Zoom bagged the top spot as the iPad App of the year. For the Apple TV, it was Disney+ snagging the award for the top spot.
Apple had mentioned in its announcement that applications are a reflection of culture and social interactions. With the pandemic occupying a lot of headspace for people, the year saw people's heightened focus on self-care and mental health; remote work and learning; interactive gaming; as well as staying connected with family and friends.
