2013 is rapidly drawing to a close, and you know what that means: tons of “Best Of” lists! In fact, the App Store has just released its picks for the year. We even have our own list (we like to call it the Best App Ever Awards) that you can vote on. Everybody loves lists!

bestof_iphoneFor the iPhone, language learning app Duolingo takes the top top spot, with the rather pretty and useful VSCO CAM and super-cute monster alphabet app Endless Alphabet as runners up. On the games side of things, Ridiculous Fishing gets some very well-deserved recognition, while surreal and clever puzzler Device 6 and the much maligned/celebrated Plants vs. Zombies 2 are close behind. That, my friends, is a pretty solid group.

bestof_ipadThe iPad has its own list of awesome, of course. The remarkably slick and gorgeous Disney Animated has managed edge-out Traktor DJ‘s remixes and WWF Together‘s cuddly animals. Meanwhile, super-atmospheric pseudo-platformer Badland has been selected as 2013′ iPad game of the year, with the shockingly well-made port of XCOM: Enemy Unknown and the infuriating but addictive Impossible Road right on its heels. All fine choices, although my own personal love/bias would probably have put XCOM at the top of the list.

So what do you think of Apple’s selections? Weigh in below and tell us what you agree or don’t agree with, what apps or games you’d prefer, etc. And while you’re at it, remember to cast your vote in the 6th Annual Best App Ever Awards!

Duolingo Goes All The Way In Its iOS 7 Redesign Update

Posted by on October 4th, 2013
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Duolingo gets a new update that goes all the way in redesigning its app for iOS 7. It features a completely new look and has different end screens that shows off your progress for the week. It’s faster and better, and is supposedly more fun as well.

Quote from App Store: “We don’t always redesign the app for iOS 7, but when we do, we prefer to go the whole way.” Hmm…anyone have a Dos Equis image? Or just a Dos Equis?
