What app should you download for your iPhone?
If you want to follow the popular trend, the answer is clear – “Angry Birds.”
Apple released the list of the top-selling apps, albums, TV shows and much more from its iTunes store and “Angry Birds” topped three separate lists.
It was the most popular paid iPhone app, paid iPad app and free iPad app.
Meanwhile, both “Angry Bird Seasons” and “Angry Birds Rio” placed in the top 10 in all three categories as well.
What kept “Angry Birds Free” out of the top spot on the iPhone? Facebook, followed by “Pandora Radio” and “Words with Friends.” Don’t know “Words With Friends”? It’s the game that got Alec Baldwin kicked off a plane.
