2016 hasn’t been the greatest of the year – in general. And we’re all really looking forward to saying goodbye. But there have been some good things – apps for instance. 2016 was the year of gadgets.

In fact, we saw multiple organically viral apps this year. So here’s the countdown to the best iPhone apps of 2016.
After entertaining us for decades on consoles and hand held devices, Mario, everyone’s favorite plumber is coming to the iPhone. Super Mario Run is Nintendo’s first officially entry to the smartphones via Apple’s App Store. And let me tell you, it’s is not all hype. It’s also not a simple clone of Subway Surfers with Mario as the title character. As you’d expect from Nintendo, they’ve done is properly.
Sometime last winter, I was at my college workspace, trying really hard to work on a project that was going nowhere. So I did the most obvious thing I could think of at the moment – brought out my iPhone, opened the Twitter app and mindlessly started scrolling through.

Halloween is just around the corner. And you know what that means – spooking/annoying/pranking your friends. And all you need to that is your iPhone. Read on the find out about the best apps, iMessage stickers and tricks for doing just that.
Tweetbot 4 is hands down the best third party Twitter client for iPhone and iPad. Yes, you don’t get access to all new Twitter features like Polls, but on the upside, there are no ads, there’s timeline position sync between all your devices and the user interface is much, much better. Totally worth the $9.99 asking price. Especially if you use Twitter day in and day out.
Generally, I like the YouTube app on the iPhone and iPad. But there are new things in iOS that YouTube just doesn’t seem to want to adopt. The chief of which being Picture in Picture mode. But there’s more. If you don’t like the YouTube app’s UI or the fact that you can’t force a default resolution for all videos, check out the apps below.
The simplest way to describe textshots is that they’re screenshots containing text. And it goes by different names. Mat Honan called them screenshorts (terrible name I think). The ones posted specifically on Twitter are sometimes referred to as tweetshots.
