iPhone app-tracking blog AppStoreHQ has counted the posts on 68 blogs to determine not what apps we download, but what one hundred apps we talk about the most. You can skip to the list, or read the blog post describing their methodology.
No surprise that Facebook and Navigon’s MobileNavigator made the Top 10, but the list is also topped by a few quirky entries:
- Flight Control
- Beejive IM 3.0 with Push
- Pocket God
- Real Racing
- Tweetie 2
- Quickoffice Mobile Office Suite
- Doodle Jump
Pocket God and Doodle Jump are two lighthearted — OK, two silly iPhone games that chart in Apple’s Top 10 most downloaded paid apps. The two games’ developers have even worked together to incorporate each others’ characters into both games.
What I want to know is: What is there to blog about Flight Control? Even positive reviews in the App Store admit it’s kind of boring. A Google blog search shows it making lots of “best app” lists, though. That’s probably what sent it to the top of AppStoreHQ’s chart.
The other notable thing about the list is that Apple’s current #1 download didn’t make the list at all, even though it’s been out for three months. For some unknown reason, it seems no one blogs about Skee-Ball.
