iPhone app hall of fame unveiled in App Store

Apple has launched a new section in the App Store which collects together all the application store’s greatest hits in a Hall of Fame.

Natch, notable presentees include casual gaming phenom, 10-million selling Angry Birds and its successor from the house of Rovio, Cut the Rope. And it’ll surprise no-one - least of all enthusiastic acolyte David Hockney - to see art app Brushes in there too.

Elsewhere, you’ll find the recently revamped Nike+ title, now pre-installed on most iOS devices, and the rather smart analog snapper-aping kit Hipstamatic, plus Facebook.

However, what might take a few folk aback are some of the omissions. There’s no Twitter app, for a start. And just as notable for its absence is the daddy of photo sharing and editing apps Flickr.

In their place you’ll find the fun but pointless Ocarina. And where you might expect to see Shazam, there’s its less popular, Johnny-come-lately rival SoundHound.
