The year-end is almost here, and that always triggers our look back at the most popular songs, apps, books, posts… of the entire year.

We’ll start by looking at the top 10 free apps downloaded from the iTunes store in 2017… with Snap up at the top once again.

No, Snapchat wasn’t actually No. 1 like last year, but Bitmoji was, which is owned by Snap (nice purchase!), slipping Snapchat into No. 2 (I guess consumers missed the memo that Snapchat was having a rough year). And no… Pokemon Go didn’t make the list this year. (Pokemon who?)

Here’s the top 10!

  1. Bitmoji (not even in the top 10 last year)
  1. Snapchat (No. 1 last year)
  1. YouTube (up from No. 6 last year)
  1. Facebook Messenger (dropping from No. 2 last year)
  1. Instagram (same place as last year)
  1. Facebook (also same place)
  1. Google Maps (also same place)
  1. Netflix (up from No. 9 last year)
  1. Spotify (up from No. 10 last year)
  1. Uber (not even in the top 10 last year)
