Apple reveals the most popular apps in the world

angry-birdsApple is currently celebrating five year anniversary with their App Store, and as part of that, Apple has revealed to us the biggest App Store successes so far.

  1. I can’t be the only one that doesn’t see the appeal of Angry Birds. I mean, it’s alright.

    But all this popularity for it when there are better games in the app store.. ugh.
