Apple 'Best of 2012' markets apps, movies, music, books
Thursday, December 13, 2012 @ 4:48pm

Apple has unveiled its annual Best Of list for 2012, which promotes content the company is selling through the iTunes Store, the App Store, and the iBookstore. The Best Album, for instance, is Shields by Grizzly Bear; Best Director is claimed by Wes Anderson for Moonrise Kingdom. Taking Best Show is Breaking Bad.



There are 24 categories in all. Under apps, notably, Paper by FiftyThree is the iPad App of the Year, while a relatively unknown title -- Action Movie FX -- is the iPhone App of the Year. At the iBookstore, Peter Heller's The Dog Stars has been picked as Best Novel, and Katherine Boo's Beautiful Behind the Forevers is the official Best Nonfiction title. The Adam Carolla Show has been chosen for Best Audio Podcast. In contrast, the Best Video Podcast is Sesame Street.
