Apple iPhones Top 10 Grossing Apps in 2010

by Nicholas Kolakowski
Apple has released a list of its top-grossing iPhone apps in 2010. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the list is dominated by entertainment apps, particularly games. Of the more productivity-related programming, iPhone and iPod Touch users evidently placed a high premium on navigation, shelling out $50 for the TomTom U.S.A. app, optimized for the iPhone 4, and free worldwide VOIP (voice over IP) calls. Baseball also ranked high, with many users downloading the MLB.com At Bat app. Despite a growing challenge from Google Android, Apple remains strong in the consumer smartphone space. Third-party developers have flocked to the company's App Store as a revenue generator, populating the online storefront with hundreds of thousands of apps. As a result, an app exists for many of life's tasks big and small. Faced with such a galaxy of choice, though, most iPhone and iPod Touch owners seem to want apps for one vital, all-consuming function: blowing zombies to smithereens.
