Apple Just Released the Best Apps for 2015


Just in case you’re in need of the best app (literally, the best) to help you survive a rough work day, to communicate with your friends, or for pure entertainment, Apple’s got you covered. On Wednesday the company released its annual list of the best rated apps of the year, and it turns out the most wanted ones of 2015 are Periscope, Workflow, Trivia Crack, Instagram, and Heads Up!, to name a few.

Here, we broke down the top picks from some of their core platforms—iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV—and organized them into categories of the top paid, top free, and the top editorial picks from the Apple staff. They don’t tease out the categories beyond those, but if there were a fitness app category, we’re pretty confident these badass personal training fitness apps would’ve made the cut.

Check out the list below to get some ideas for new apps to download today.
