Apple reveals most popular iPhone & iPad apps of all-time

Rovio’s casual gaming sensation Angry Birds is the most downloaded paid-for app for the iPhone of all time, Apple has disclosed.

Just behind the avians vs porcines puzzler is Doodle Jump, the just released official top 10 chart of the App Store’s biggest sellers reveals. And in a paid-for countdown dominated by games, there are also appearances for two Tap Tap Revenge titles, Bejeweled 2 and Pocket God.

However, the free chart presents a very different picture, with barely a game in sight. Facebook is number one, followed by eBay Mobile and the Google Mobile app. In fact, it’s not until number eight that a game appears, in the shape of the daddy of all time killers Paper Toss.

Head on over to the iPad all-time top selling apps chart, however, and games are much less prevalent. At the top of the tree in the paid apps category for Apple’s slate is TuneIn Radio. Sitting pretty in the freebie countdown is the perma-popular Google Mobile App, making its second appearance across the list.

Apple has published its latest charts as it gears up to celebrate the 10 billionth download from the App Store. To mark what even the most committed iSceptic would admit is a pretty notable milestone, the company is giving away a $10,000 iTunes gift card to the person who downloads the ten billionth app.
