Yesterday we brought you news of a tremendous achievement where the App Store is concerned. Apple, amazingly, announced the fact that it had delivered an astonishing 25 billion downloads since the creation of the App Store in 2008.

That truly is an amazing fact and we’re sure it won’t be long until the next milestone of 50 billion has come and gone. It took Apple just over a year to add a further 15 billion to its 10 billionth download back in January, 2011.

If you were wondering what apps have been top of the pile during this success then look no further than the list below that is available on iTunes:

Do you have any predictions on how long you think it will take for Apple to announce the 50 billionth app download?

      lol he probaby made a mistake and will fix it later on

    • Yeah do you not remember the App Store that came out even before the iPod? Ha ha my bad… Fixed, and thanks.

  • 50 Billionth App by the end of the Summer 2013.

  • Please delete facebook.

  • I woulda thought Twitter would be higher up in the top free lists because of Twitter integration.


  • Angry birds ? I wish death on anyone with angry birds on their device.

  • I think there are many more awesome apps which have been left out!
