App Store gains new monthly 'Best Of' section

updated 09:31 am EDT, Fri May 2, 2014

Gathers together editorial picks

A new section, "Best of April," has appeared at the iOS App Store, users note. The section gathers together picks by Apple's editorial staff during last month, including 25 games and 24 general apps. One game and one non-gaming app have been selected as top picks in separate iPhone and iPad categories. The top iPhone apps are Leo's Fortune and NYT Now. The iPad picks, meanwhile, are Hearthstone and Comedy Central.

It remains to be seen if Apple will continue to do monthly showcases, but the language used may suggest it. It's also unknown to what extent the picks are legitimately favored by Apple's editors or simply being promoted. Last month, sources for the Wall Street Journal mentioned that exclusivity deals and recommendations from developer relations staff are influencing which apps get promoted.
