Maps topping the list of the iPhone Apps of 2012? You have got to be kidding me if it were the ones on the ios6

what about task killer . i don't think it is useful ,and what about whatsapp it is not in top 10

I was thinking the same thing about task killer. Thats 9 million ppl that, if not used right, caused more problems with the task killer than made things better.
