To think about an iPhone apps list you would need much more space than what we have here for this article. What I will do for you is give you a comprehensive category list from a couple of different review sites as well as some categories that the various iPhone apps lists are identified under. iTunes is reported to go over three hundred thousand apps by November of next year so it will be very difficult for any one app to get noticed as they are developed.
Apps are assigned to several categories and may appear in more than one, but are ranked based on the number of times they are downloaded from iTunes. If an app is not on iTunes it will not appear in the rankings at appstoreapps.com. Most review sites will have featured apps (paid highlights that have nothing to do with popularity or utility), free apps categories and paid apps categories. There are even reviews of some apps that may help you make a final decision.
On almost all of the review sites any category listed under Free Apps has a mirrored list under Paid Apps. Following is iPhone apps list of Free Apps (the Top 50 are listed under the appropriate link on the review site). Games, Entertainment, Utilities, Business, Education, Reference, Lifestyle, Productivity, Travel, Health and Fitness, Book, Sports, Music, Finance, Social Networking, Photography, News, Weather and Medical Apps. With 50 apps listed under these eighteen categories that means there are 900 apps in each of the Free and Paid Apps on the review site.
The Top Free Game App is Traffic Rush, while the top Paid Game App is Where’s Waldo with Bejeweled coming in third. When you go on to the Entertainment section the top rated Free App is ImDb the movie and actor database while Wordsmith is the top rated Paid Entertainment app. Moving on to Utilities you will find that Touch Scale and the AT&T Mark the Spot utility are one and two for Free Apps and RedLaser and Live Cams are one and two for Paid Apps.
For Business the top Free App is Park n Find and the top two Paid Apps for business are QuickOffice and Business Card Reader. For Education the best Apps are Musee du Louvre and Spanish Tutor while the best Paid Apps are Basic Spanish for Dummies and Mathemagic. For Reference you will find that Google Mobile Map and Dictionary.com are the top two Free Apps and Gallagher’s Beer Guide and the World Factbook ’09 edition are the top two Paid Apps.
The Lifestyle category gives you Christmas Spirit Generator and eBay Mobile as the top two Free Apps and 23000 Great Quotes and Textfree as the top two Paid Apps. Productivity has Doodle Buddy and iTranslate as the best Free Apps and Doodle Buddy Holiday Edition and Awesome Note (Todo) as the best Paid Apps in this category. For Travel you get Google Earth and Urbanspoon are the best Free Apps and FlightTrack Live Flight Status Tracker and ZAGAT To Go ’09 are the best Paid Apps.
