Most-Downloaded List Shows Why “App” Rhymes With “Crap”

This image described by iPhone, App Store, iTunes, top downloads, Appstore_01

iTunes just posted a list of the top pay and free iPhone apps, and it's astonishing how much crapware occupies the top slots.

For instance, Koi Pond qualified for both the "Top Paid App" and "Top Paid Entertainment" lists.  The latter list also includes such heavy hitters as iBeer, iFish, and Touchscan, the 99 cent application that ‚Äúscans the mind of two people at once and
compares the brain waves recorded” by way of a fake on-screen
fingerprint scanner.  Where's P.T. Barnum when you really need him?

(On the other hand, the infamous "I Am Rich" scam app didn't make the list, so at the very least, God is not quite as perverse as we've been led to believe…)

On the free apps front, the admittedly clever — and often fiendishly prescient — Pandora Radio was Top of the Pops both overall and in the Free Music category.  Facebook beat out the likes of AIM and MySpace Mobile, both overall and on the Top Social Networking
list.  Google Earth, a virtual baby (it was released two months ago), still garnered enough downloads to become the Number 7 Most Downloaded Freebie.  Tap Tap Revenge (Number Three freebie overall) also topped the Free Games category.

May be this guy has a point, but still it is impressive what developers came up with in the past 6 months.
