Illustration for article titled The Most Popular iPhone and iPad Apps of All Time

We've now downloaded an astronomical 25 billion iOS apps, and Apple's put out lists of the all time most popular for iPhone and iPad.


Angry Birds predictably infests the lists: It's got nine entries across the four top ten lists for free and paid iPhone and iPad apps. Words with Friends and Netflix are also popular across all categories. About the only surprising thing is that iFart Mobile finally got knocked off the iPad lists.
