Apple Revealed Its Best Apps For The Year 2011

The year of 2011 for Apple has been an up and down rollercoaster ride and a buzz-worthy one. On the news not too long ago was a report from The Wall Street Journal about Apple vs. Samsung legal battle in regards to Samsung’s alleged product "copying" of Apple’s products, and of course, the big news about the passing away of Apple’s beloved former CEO and co-founder Steve Jobs on October 5.

This time, however, it’s a different twist on a positive note for Apple as the company just revealed its best apps for the year 2011.

Apple’s picks for the best iOS apps and games selection includes top-performing apps in different genres of Podcasts and Books, TV shows, movies, music and App Store.

Winners of this year’s best of the bunch are picked and ranked under "Best paid apps" and "Best free apps," "Best iPad apps" and "Best iPhone apps."

The best free app of the year went to Instagram, a photo-sharing app that is also one of the world’s fastest-growing social networks.

In addition, the best free app game of the year went to Tiny Tower, an app that lets users grow an economic empire by building towers and populating them with businesses and bitizens.

Whereas, the best paid app of the year went to Snapseed, a photo-editing app that lets users pinch, mold, and shape effects to make jaw-dropping beautiful photos.

Meanwhile, the paid app game of the year for iPad went to Dead Space, a horrifying game that lets users act as a hero and fight for survival on an eerie space station overrun by zombies in the year 2508.

There you go, folks. If you ask me, these apps are absolutely fun and worth your time to download, so enjoy them.
