50 most popular titles on Apple App Store (part 2)
Happy 5th Birthday, Apple App Store! Seem like it was yesterday when we first installed the original Angry Birds on our iPhones and look at you now – with over 800 app downloads per second and already passed through the 50th billion download milestone.

Since this is a special occasion, it deserves a special treatment. We've made a list of the 50 apps and games, ten for each year passed, that have made the App Store what it is today. We are breaking it down in two parts, and you can find the last 25 titles right below. Before blowing the candles this July 10 make sure that you check our alphabetical list and download what you miss from it, making yourself an even more respectable guest at the Apple party. After all, that's what the store is about – bringing fun to our lives.

Here is Apple's official statement about the occasion: “From the 500 apps available at launch in 2008 to the more than 900,000 at your fingertips today, it’s been a remarkably prolific five years for the App Store. To celebrate, we’re giving everyone five landmark games and five groundbreaking apps for a limited time. Plus, look back at the key moments that have made the App Store the world’s most innovative destination for apps.”

well is counting apps in total, and they metioned appstore not only for iphone, but for ipad, so in numbers yeah is more than 900k apps. Nothing personal I just figured I pointed that out.

2/3 of the apps are never or almost never downloaded, too.

Yes, but having those 2/3's of apps that nobody ever wants or downloads is important in order for critics to slam WP for having only the critical 1/3 that everybody actually uses!

Sorry, that has nothing much to do with this article; but it's worth mentioning anyway, since the critics rant about the lack of apps when it comes to complainiing about Microsoft and Nokia ;o)
