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?

    In my opinion some of these games, books,songs, and albums are good but some are not. It seems to me that Frozen is not very like-able at my school or in my class really, the only character I like is Olaf. I believe that Minecraft should be the best game and Taylor Swift's 1989 album should be the best album\song and The Fault In Our Stars should be the best book. Of course everybody has a different opinion, but a lot of people will probably vote Minecraft as the number 1 game. I know the song Fancy is good to other people but seriously it's not good enough in my opinion.

    Everyone should know that 2014 was a good year but are you sure what were the greatest hits this last year? The fact is "Frozen" hit the top list on the chart on iTunes their biggest song "Let it go" by Idina Menzel also the following song "Happy" by Pharrell Williams. Without a doubt it was also a good year for Taylor Swift coming at 2 place on iTunes list with her new album "1989". Knowing John Green getting a good year with his new novel "The Fault in Our Stars" is the top best fiction novel sense 2013. Also getting top most paid app/game on iTunes "Minecraft Pocket Edition". Others might agree that no one has won the throne on the greatest show Game of Thrones coming in as the best selling series. Surely we are going to have a great new year wishing you a good one.

    Did you know that the top favorite movie was Frozen? But did you also know that the top selling album is Happy by Pharrell Williams? There are different things that we didn't know about all the famous people. So they also said that a song named Fancy by Iggy Azalea was named as the best song. Finally they said that Beyonce won overall artist which meant that she was the best artist.

    Why did the author write "These awards are the Apple's opinion?" The author said it's the Apple's opinion because they're the producer's so they decided who's song,movie or book is the best. Surely, one of notification books was The fault of are stars.

    In my opinion Frozen is probably the most poplar song a lot of my friends sisters download the song. I am a fan of Happy not that much on Frozen. Mincraft is the most poplar game. All of my friends have it. All of these opinions are all correct to me. That is my opinion on this article.

    In my opinion I think that they a good choose picking those awards on tunes. I believe that the song happy should be the best selling song on tunes.I also think that they made a good choose to pick Minecraft and you tube for best selling apps on the app store. I agree that they picked Guardians of the Galaxy" soundtrack as one of the top five albums.I know that they made a good choose by picking game of thrones as best selling TV show.

    An announcer next to you, the people are cheering for you, the announcer says "The awards go to...........," okay now that is what I would not want to listen to. I believe that when the author says These awards are in Apple's opinion" is because when it says: 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, it said "Apple Announced". Im absolutely certain that Apple must know those things otherwise the author would have not said that. Im sure that Apple knows these things because Apple does own iTunes besides like I said it did say Apple Announced. In my opinion I believe hat the author said These awards are in Apple's opinion". Another thing is that its Apples opinion so that's what apple thinks.

    I believe that the author wrote "These awards are in Apple's opinion", because iTunes is owned by Apple. The fact is that the top selling songs, albums, and movies were the most downloaded on iTunes. Of course this is not everyone's opinion because not everyone downloads from iTunes. I know that there are many other opinions out in the world. In my opinion, everyone should pick their own top sellers.
