Apple named this the other runner-up for app of the year. For the fiscally minded, Robinhood gives users an easy way to buy and sell stocks through the app for free. They can also view market data in real time and place trades.
Named "most innovative," Workflow is described as a "personal automation tool" that simplifies the back-and-forth of moving between various apps to carry out tasks like ordering food or texting a friend. Users can drag and drop actions from various apps on the their phone to seamlessly pivot between tasks.
Named the "best app on iPhone 6s," Instagram, the popular photo-sharing app, has enabled professional photographers and casual selfie-takers alike the chance to share their pictures with a wide audience.
HBO Now is the cable channel's new standalone streaming service. Right now, it's available as an introductory free trial for a limited time, giving users access to the network's popular catalogue of shows past and present -- from "The Sopranos" to "Game of Thrones" -- as well as movies and special events.
Great for the frequent flyer, Hopper gives users the opportunity to save up to 40 percent on air travel. The app analyzes billions of flight prices on a daily basis, predicting when prices will change and designating when would be the best time to book a flight.
Like Enlight, Darkroom is another photo-editing app that made the cut. Users skip the photo import process and just start editing images directly from their phones. They can also edit and share filters through in-app purchase Pro Kit.
