Top That! Top Apps for iPhone and iPad

We are always working hard to find the latest and greatest apps for Apple products, including the iPhone, iPod Touch and most recently, the iPad. With so many available, it sometimes is hard to narrow down all the choices. Apple has recently dedicated a special page on their iTunes store to 40 of the most popular apps for iOS devices. These lists include both paid and free apps for both devices.


The App Store has been steadily popular since its introduction in 2008. Everyday there are new apps made and introduced. Users have been downloading content at a rate of more than three billion apps per year, and the number of downloads is quickly reaching 10 billion! Apple is even rewarding the person who downloads the 10 billionth app with a $10,000 iTunes gift card!
