The soundtrack for "Frozen" and Pharrell's viral "Happy" are the year's top-selling album and song on iTunes.

Apple announced that Taylor Swift's "1989," is second to "Frozen." Rounding out the top 5 albums are Coldplay's "Ghost Stories," Sam Smith's "In the Lonely Hour" and the "Guardians of the Galaxy" soundtrack.

"Frozen" is the year's best-selling movie. Season three of "Game of Thrones" is the top TV show.

The top paid and free apps for the iPhone are Heads Up! and Facebook Messenger. The top paid and free apps for the iPad are Minecraft Pocket Edition and YouTube.

Apple also named Swift's "1989" as the best album of the year. Beyonce earned top overall artist. Azalea's "Fancy" was named best song. These awards are in Apple's opinion.

John Green's 2012 novel, "The Fault in Our Stars," is the top fiction book. "Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt" and "Private" are No. 1 for non-fiction and free books, respectively

Critical thinking challenge: Why did the author write These awards are in Apple's opinion?

    The author wrote this because ever since Frozen came out is has been played over and over again by little girls and even older teenagers. So basically in Apple's onion frozen is number one.

    In my opinion I like the song happy more than the song Frozen because, the song happy is in more commercials and usually the old songs are better than the new songs.

    In my opinion I think frozen album sold the most! Why because you know that frozen is so famous and stuff! Or i think it could be that "happy" is the most that sold. Fancy is kinda the most my favorite because is so fancy!!!

    In my opinion, I think that Heads Up is a fun game and it should be voted as the best app for iPhones. Of course, Minecraft Pocket Edition was voted the best app for iPads because so many people love it, but I don't know what they find so cool about it. Now, I think that "1989" is a great album but I enjoy Beyonc's albums more than Taylor's. Clearly, I think that Beyonc's songs are really good and she has put out a lot of albums. Another thing is, I have seen the movie, "The Fault in Our Stars," and I'm sure that the book is as good as the movie. Obviously, the movie was very good, so I would agree that the book should be a top seller. That is my opinion about the article.

    The author said in "Apple's opinion" because those were their picks. It seems to me that, they also got good reviews from buyers. I know some of those are also my favorites and I like them. Clearly, Apple's picks are also probably top-sellers too. Surely, I know some are those were on the charts they had very good reviews and ratings. In fact, they are also a lot of other people's picks to, like the Frozen soundtrack and the song Happy.

    In my opinion I think its cool that the the soundtrack for "Frozen" and Pharrell's viral "Happy" are the year's top-selling album and song on iTunes. I believe Happy and a few songs from the soundtrack Frozen are my favorite songs. Clearly I love Taylor Swift and all of her songs. I know that "Frozen" is the year's best-selling movie because everyone likes watching the movie and reading all of the books. I agree that, The top paid and free apps for the iPad are Minecraft Pocket Edition and YouTube. I now know that the soundtrack Frozen and the song, Happy are the years top-selling album and song on iTunes.
