Apple Blossoms

This tree was going to be cut down because it is leaning to one side, misshapen and had many dead branches. Then it did this.

I will attempt to prune it and coax it into a better shape and have decided to keep it. I am not sure if it as an actual apple tree or a crabapple. The meager fruit it produced last year was tiny and mealy. Suggestions on getting it not to lean and to increase even growth are welcome. The trees shading it on the other side will eventually come down, and the rampant forsythia has been scythed to the ground.
