Apple Lists Top 20 Free And Paid iPhone Apps

Apple Lists Top 20 Free And Paid iPhone AppsApple’s runaway success of their App Store continues at a rate of knots, and to celebrate the one billionth download the company has released two lists showcasing the top 20 free and paid iPhone apps.

Incredibly, it’s just three months have passed since Apple’s iTunes store shimmied past the 500 million download landmark

The list puts Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 3D at the top of the pile of the paid apps and, not surprisingly, Facebook heads up the free app list.

The huge success of the AppStore has been fuelled by the smart move of setting up a unified one-stop store (currently being copied by every other phone manufacturer on the planet) and by keeping the prices low.

Many of the apps are just $0.99, with Crash and Super Monkey Ball being the most expensive in the list at $5.99 – which is still cheap compared to most games on other platforms.

More than 25,000 applications are now available on Apple App Store, although there’s an awful lot of junk in that total, including something like 75 ‘fart’ applications, presumably downloaded by idiots.
