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.

10. Tinycards


Tinycards is the brand new app from the makers of Duolingo. It’s basically flashcards for your phone.

9. Hyper


Hyper handpicks you only the “freshest, dopest, most informative and funniest” videos on the planet.

8. Glasses by Warby Parker


Makes sure your next pair of specs fit just as they should.

7. Credit Karma

Credit Karma gives you a free credit check in a matter of minutes. It’s as simple as that.

5. Meditation Studio


A diverse selection of more than 200 guided meditations featuring different teachers and styles.

4. Vogue

3. Quartz


Quartz’s app is an ongoing conversation about the news, sort of like texting. It’ll send you messages, photos, GIFs, and links, and you can decide when you’re interested in reading more.
