Apple unveils top iPhone, iPad apps of 2010

Curious what 'appened in 2010? Apple is here to give you an idea with its yearly Rewind 2010 statistics for most popular apps of the year for the iPhone, iPod touch and the iPad. The list of top apps for 2010 is broken down into the top free, top paid and top grossing categories for iPhone and iPod touch, and the same three sections for the iPad. But don't expect any shocking news – Facebook was the top free iPhone app, while Angry Birds dominated the paid iPhone apps. Maybe the biggest surprise was that MLB.com At Bat 2010 came in first as the top grossing application for Apple's iPhone. The baseball fans dished out hefty $15 during the baseball season to stay in the know about the game on their iPhones or iPod touches.


On the iPad front things looked different with iBooks winning the free apps, Pages topping the paid apps, and the trinity of productivity titles (Pages, Numbers, Keynote) by Apple occupying the best three in grossing apps.

I find it hard to believe that Bing is one of the top apps for iPhone users.......
