Apple is the latest to reveal their 2013 year-in-review, and their editor’s pick for best app of the year is free language learning app Duolingo.

Apple describes the app, which finally opened wide to the public in June of 2012, as “fantastically well-designed and easy to use.” Duolingo offers free language learning via a series of translation mini-games and at the same time helps crowdsource the translation of many online sites and documents (that’s where Duolingo sources its course material).

Of course, the Editor’s Pick is a subjective trophy. Moving on to more objective winners, Minecraft is your #1 top paid app of the year.

And when it comes to free apps, addictive puzzle game Candy Crush Saga took home the prize for most-downloaded.

Of course, the App Store isn’t all about apps – there’s plenty of music, movies, and books being downloaded from Apple’s digital hub.

Apple named Justin Timberlake their artist of the year and gave Lorde’s “Royals” the song of the year honors. Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience was the most-purchased album of the year, followed by Beyonce’s recent surprise release and Imagine Dragons’ Night Visions.

Your most-purchased movies on iTunes were Skyfall, Wreck-It-Ralph, and Argo. And your number one TV show, both in terms of editor’s pick and total purchases was Breaking Bad, of course (what else?).

You can check out all of the top apps, books, podcasts, movies, TV shows, and more at Apple’s Best-Of-2013 hub on iTunes.
