Apple says that these were the most popular iOS apps of 2014
Apple has revealed the top free and paid iOS apps of 2014. On top of the paid apps list is Heads Up! This is the game where you hold your phone on the top of your head so that your teammate can feed you clues as you try to guess what celebrity, movie, television show, character or animal is listed on your screen. The game is 99 cents with a number of categories offered as in-app purchases for an additional 99 cents each.

Minecraft-Pocket Edition is next, followed by photo editor Afterlight. Fourth place goes to video game Plague. Smart alarm Sleep Cycle alarm clock rounds our the top five paid apps. This app tracks your sleeping patterns and awakens you during the lightest sleep phase of your cycle, allowing you to wake fully refreshed.

The top five free iOS apps were all social networks. On top is Facebook Messenger with self-destructing messaging app Snapchat right behind. Streaming video site YouTube takes third, followed by Facebook and picture/video sharing site Instagram. Ironically, free apps took four of the top five positions for the highest grossing apps. That is because those four used the freemium pricing structure. While the apps were free to download and install, they offered in-app purchases that were necessary for the fullest enjoyment of these titles. The top five grossing apps were led by Clash of Clans, followed by Candy Crush Saga, Game of War-Fire, Pandora and Big Fish Casino. All but streaming radio site Pandora, are games.

"This is the game where you hold your phone on the top of your head" This is hilarious! The number one app for iZombies involves irradiating their "brains" even more.

It's been out for a while so I would hope you guys have it by now (I'm glad, even if it's probably lesser quality)

And Android Tegra games are much better graphics than iOS games.

Tegra is nice for the 40 people that own a device, but not better.

Yep, they copied or they asked permission from "Eat..Bulaga!" if they could use the idea of "Pinoy Henyo" but if they didn't asked permission they might get into a serious problem.

pinoy henyo, is a very fun game, app users should come visit or search eat bulaga, to feel how entertaining the game is. this game is very tricky, it looks easy if you just watch it, but if you're the player, your brain is actually tested and find it difficult, even with easy word. :D

My favorite app is Spyglass – it’s a great navigational toolkit for different purposes. It’s top-notch for off-road and on-road navigation, hiking and traveling. It’s crammed with all that necessary data like gps coordinates, current azimuth, altitude, speed, potential arrival time to your target and much more. It can read pre-downloaded maps later when offline and provides you with extremely precise information.
