Of course, iPhone apps, include apps downloaded for the iPod Touch. The list doesn't include the top 25 apps downloaded for the Mac platform. This may be because the Mac App Store has only been around for a little over a year. Looking at the apps, games are still the more popular genres of applications to download and Angry Birds still dominates. Furthermore, Facebook retains its position as number one free app for the iPhone. For more on popular applications, check out Tech2's article on top 10 addictive mobile games.
