Apple discloses top iPhone and iPad apps of all time

In conjunction with Apple's recently announced countdown to 50 billion app downloads, the company last week issued an updated list charting the most popular iPhone and iPad apps of all-time. Per usual, the listing is broken up between free and paid apps. As one might expect, the list is extremely game heavy, with Rovio's Angry Birds making a number of appearances on both the paid and free list. It's also worth noting that a number of Apple's own applications make appearances on the list of most popular paid iPad titles.

So without further ado, let's take a look at the apps that iOS users simply haven't been able to get enough of over the past few years.
