When Steve Jobs first introduced the iPhone back in 2007, it radically changed the technology industry and the rise of the smartphone. Fast forward to 2017, where Apple introduces the iPhone X, their 15th smartphone and they decided to go with an all-glass and stainless steel design, an almost bezel-less display and no home button.

As the year comes to an end, it’s time to start reflecting back and for the annual “best of …” or “favourite things of 2017.”
This post will be mostly focusing on the apps that I used the most this year. Some of which I’ve mentioned in previous posts such as my Favourite Apps of 2016 post.
Niantic has announced an upcoming update for the iOS version of Pokémon GO, which will bring an enhanced augmented reality experience with the new AR+ mode.
I wouldn’t consider myself a hardcore Star Wars fan but I would consider myself enough of a fan that I’ve bought Star Wars related merch and toys such as a Millennium Falcon canvas print, Funko Pop and even a Sphero BB-8. I’m also a huge fan of technology, so when I heard about Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, it immediately piqued my interests.
Star Wars Jedi Challenges is a phone-based augmented reality experience that allows you to become immersed in the world of Star Wars. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and it’s one of the best augmented reality experiences I’ve tried.

Snapchat has updated the design of their app, to create a bigger emphasis on your friends and the content that you love.
Smartwatches are one of those things where not everyone needs but secretly they do want one. Sure, it’s nice to have a smartwatch but it just eliminates just one less step of pulling out your phone. The only real smartwatch that is selling in the millions is the Apple Watch, meanwhile, Android Wear watches have sold a fraction of Apple despite having more features and some iOS capabilities.
Back at I/O 2017, Google had announced Photo Books which allowed users create and print photo albums using their own photos.
