On any given day in Apple’s iOS App Store there are 100 apps that rise above all others – where the owners of iPhones, iPod touches and iPads decide with their hard-earned dollars which cream rises to the top. Because we’re curious types, we decided to pick a random day, grab all Top 100 paid app icons and break them down into our own unscientific categories to see if there’s any science behind what’s popular and what’s not. The results may surprise you!
