It seems like there’s an iPhone app for everything, but when it comes to what apps people paid for in 2011 — it’s all about the games.
Nine of the top 10 paid apps last year were games.
Here’s the top five list…
‘Angry Birds’ was by far the most popular app of 2011.
‘Words with Friends’ comes in second. That’s a game based on Scrabble that you play against another iPhone user.
Slicing strategy game ‘Fruit Ninja’ is number three.
‘Camera Plus’ is the only non-gaming app in the entire top 10. It adds features to the iPhone’s camera like zoom and filters.
In fifth is ‘Where’s My Water?’ Players help a sewer-dwelling alligator find a shower.
With 800-million active users of its website worldwide — Facebook topped the social networking category.
The company also unveiled its long awaited iPad app this year.
Skype was another popular pick in the social networking category last year.
As for sports ‘ESPN’s Score Center’ was the top free downloaded app for iPhone users.
‘Pandora’ was tops in music — as it has been since 2008. And ‘Craig’s List Mobile’ was the top free business app.
