The yearly, and hugely prestigious, App Store Awards have just taken place in New York with Apple crowning its iPhone, iPad, Mac, Watch and Apple TV winners from thousands of entries.

Coveted gongs including iPhone App of the Year, iPad App of the Year and Mac App of the Year have been dished out during the event in the Big Apple with this year’s winners including developers from across the world, whose apps and games were chosen by the App Store’s Editorial team.

“It’s inspiring to see the ways developers continue to build incredible apps and games that are redefining the world around us,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “This year’s winners represent the limitless potential of developers to bring their visions to life, creating apps and games with remarkable ingenuity, exceptional quality, and purpose-driven missions.”

So who are the winners and what apps do you need to install on your devices?

Coming out on top for iPhone is the AllTrails application which offers users comprehensive trail guides from across the entire globe. The software allows you to find areas off the beaten track and even features filters to make sure the activities are suitable for your levels of fitness,
