The year has almost come to an end, and Google has announced its most popular apps, games, movies and more on the Google Play Store in 2016. The neural network based photo-editing app, Prisma was the top app in the Android app store this year. Incidentally it was also the top app in Apple’s App Store this year.

Prisma lets you convert your pictures into works of art, following the styles of Van Gogh, Picasso, Levitan and others. The app’s concept is pretty simple: You upload a picture from the Camera roll or take one, then just tap next and start choosing the filter that appeals most to you. The photo-editing app went viral quickly and has been downloaded millions of times since.

The top game on the app store is Pokemon GO, a popular Augmented-Reality (AR) game that was launched in July and was downloaded millions of times. Apple on the other hand has named “Clash Royale” as the iPhone game of the year.
