It's hard to believe that just half a decade ago, apps weren't a "thing". Back then,if you wanted to game on the go or be productive while mobile, your choices were few. Plus, you were often limited to the in-built software on your phone.
With apps, though, pretty much anything is possible. You can use your phone to call, text, write documents, find recipes, DJ, play all manner of games, and much more.
Our editors and regular contributors will be documenting their five favourite apps and games of the last five years, along with their hopes for the App Store in the future.
We'd love for you to be a part of it too. Share your favourite five games - and your wishes for the store moving forward - over on the Best App Ever Facebook Wall.
