Apple has unveiled its traditional list of the best iPhone apps of the year, whittling down the 2 million applications that currently inhabit the App Store down to just 10 of the very best.

Prisma, an app which turns your photos into incredibly realistic-looking paintings using artificial intelligence, has been awarded the prestigious title of  "App of the Year." The other nine include fun stuff like a handpicked viral video service, while others help you to carry out a wide variety of daily tasks like revising for exams, checking your credit score, and even improving your mental health.

Here's the list in full.
