In fact, its list of the most popular paid apps includes an eclectic set of programs ranging from fitness apps to photo filters. There are also some enterprise-friendly apps, such as the iScanner PDF creator and the HotSchedules work scheduler. Regardless, all of the most popular paid iPhone apps are high quality and have received outstanding reviews from critics and users alike. This slide show will examine the most popular paid iPhone apps as ranked by the App Store.
