Apple Uncovers The Top All-Time Apps (In The Race To 10 Billion Downloads)

If you had to guess what the top downloaded iOS app of all time was, what would you say? You’ll probably get it. It’s an obvious one. It’s Facebook. Number two is fairly easy too: Pandora. But did you know that number three is the Google Mobile App? I wonder what Apple thinks of that?

As they countdown to 10 billion total app downloads, Apple has unveiled a page within the iTunes Store that shows the top app downloads of all time. These are broken into four categories: Top Free iPhone Apps, Top Paid iPhones Apps, Top Free iPad Apps, and Top Paid iPad Apps.

At first, it seemed a bit surprising that Apple would rank them in order, but we’ve spoken with a few app developers who assure us that this is exactly what they’re doing. Below, find the full top 10 list for each category. As you can see, the lists are pretty strong and obvious, except for paid iPad apps, which seems oddly weak (iFart Mobile, seriously?). In other words, there’s a huge opportunity out there developers.

All-Time Top Paid iPhone Apps

  1. Doodle Jump
  2. Tap Tap Revenge 3
  3. Pocket God
  4. Angry Birds
  5. Tap Tap Revenge 2.6
  6. Bejeweled 2 + Blitz
  7. Traffic Rush
  8. Tap Tap Revenge Classic
  9. AppBox Pro Alarm
  10. Flight Control

All-Time Top Free iPhone Apps

  1. Facebook
  2. Pandora
  3. Google Mobile App
  4. Shazam
  5. Movies by Flixster
  6. The Weather Channel
  7. Google Earth
  8. Bump
  9. Skype
  10. Paper Toss

All-Time Top Paid iPad Apps

  1. SoundHound
  2. StickWars
  3. FlightTrack
  4. Backbreaker Football
  5. Calorie Tracker
  6. BlocksClassic
  7. iFart Mobile
  8. GoodReader for iPad
  9. Cro-Mag Rally
  10. Ambiance

All-Time Top Free iPad Apps

  1. Pandora
  2. Google Mobile App
  3. Movies by Flixster
  4. Google Earth
  5. Yelp
  6. Fandango Movies
  7. Remote
  8. iBooks
  9. Bible
  10. Solitaire

This last list is particularly interesting. You’ll notice one glaring absence: Facebook. If the social network had a native iPad app, it would undoubtedly be the top app of all time on the platform. Instead, they’ve gone months without one now, letting other paid apps like Friendly Plus (in the Top 30 all time) take their thunder.

Other surprises include that Echofon (a Twitter client) has more downloads than Twitter itself. (Though it’s not really fair since Twitter only got their own native app when they bought Tweetie.) Loopt is far, far ahead of rival Foursquare — and AroundMe kills them both. Meanwhile, Urbanspoon beat Yelp. And Tic-Tac-Toe beat Checkers.
