iOS users buy more games than any other Apps

What do you think were the most-downloaded iOS apps of 2013? Snapchat? Google Maps? YouTube? Think again. Minecraft took home the top paid app on both iPhone and iPad, while Candy Crush Saga romped it in as the most popular free app on both platforms.

In fact, gaming triumphed in both the free and paid categories - four each of the top free apps for both platforms are games. 70% of the best-selling paid iPhone apps are games too - but the most impressive numbers come from the top 10 paid iPad app chart. Every one of the top ten is a video game. Whether they're paying 99 cents or a more premium price, it looks like people across the world are choosing to go portable with their gaming.
