At the end of the year, we thought it was a good idea to dive into our database of App Store apps and present some interesting lists of the most popular apps in 2010.
The following two lists show the most popular apps based on the top 100 lists. These lists for both iPhone and iPad were generated based on the rank and length of time each app had in the bestsellers lists.
Top iPhone Apps 2010
Top iPad Apps 2010
Next we looked at our user’s Wish List apps to see what the most wanted apps were for 2010. As you might expect, the list only represents paid apps, since no one bothers wish-listing free apps. But one surprise was that a large number of users have wish-listed the $0.99 app Angry Birds, in the hopes it will drop to free at some point.
