We’re getting close to the end of 2019, and with it will come countless year-end lists for everyone to sift through. Today we have a new one from Apple, who have revealed the most downloaded apps of 2019. These include the likes of both free and paid games, as well as other things like weather and social media apps.
Unsurprisingly, the top free game of 2019 was Mario Kart Tour, the most recent mobile release from Nintendo. This is very impressive considering that the game only launched at the end of September, but considering the massive appeal of the Mario Kart franchise it really isn’t much of a surprise. Call of Duty: Mobile also made an appearance on the list, coming in at the #4 spot. The following is the top 5 most downloaded free games:
- Mario Kart Tour
- Color Bump 3D

Minecraft has once again taken the #1 spot for paid game apps, with the game’s huge popularity showing no signs of slowing down. Considering that the game comes with a premium price of $6.99, this makes it one of the more costly paid games on the app store. The following is the top 5 paid games:
