After I search a key term depending on the feature I'm looking for, in this case I searched "GDPR", I look for the number of reviews, and the star rating. Although the number of reviews doesn't tell us how many times the app's been downloaded, it gives us a good indication. In general, the more reviews, the more downloads. From there, I try to find apps that have 4.7 stars or higher, as a good starting point. After that, I look at the pricing, and features available and cross reference this information with what the business is willing to pay, and the importance of particular features.
In looking for an app for your business, these would be the top apps I would look at - all have 4.9 star ratings:
One other app that has a very high amount of reviews, and 4.5 star rating is:

thank you very much for your answer, in fact what I wanted to know, just install an app to be in compliance? They source the pages etc ...
Thanks for the reply. I'm not able to offer any legal advice, so I can't confirm whether or not those apps will make your store fully compliant with your local laws. I will note that the app descriptions seem to say that they allow you to be fully compliant. For example, in Booster: EU Cookie Bar GDPR, their app description says "to fully comply". Here's a screenshot:
If you're unsure, I'd either reach out to the app developer directly to ask some clarifying questions, or seek out legal advice in your area to make sure you're fully compliant with your local laws and regulations.
This is an accepted solution.
Well Booster: EU Cookie Bar GDPR also answered me immediately
"I'm afraid that using this app alone does not guarantee full compliance with GDPR. Our app is designed to pass user consent to Shopify. Each Shopify merchant is responsible for handling its own GDPR obligations."
Glad you reached out to the apps directly to gather some more context. Good to know that they can't guarantee full compliance, thanks for letting me know, much appreciated. Sounds like you've got an action plan now which is great, but I understand wanting to check in to see if these apps could've worked as an alternative.
Thanks for the quick reply here and for updating us in the thread. Wish you all the best!
let me give my two cents on the topic the following based on our experience with our application GDPR Compliance Center (previously named GDPR Cookie Bar +ePrivacy Page).
GDPR and CCPA is not an easy task in a running business on Shopify. We tried on our app to provide the right tools and options to make this work easier for a store but for the one that are using a lot of applications and a lot of script tag on their theme the work is becoming a chaos.
Concluding this topic I can say that for the majority of the stores in Shopify our app is working 100% without further actions. For some others more complex setups with tens of apps and services though it needs some configuration and effort by merchant to make it work properly. One-click approaches for large stores cannot be provided and for sure external services like iubenda etc cannot work properly with Shopify.
