As the clock continues to count down toward Apple’s milestone of 10 billion apps downloaded from the App Store, the company has revealed its top iOS applications of all time. The list is split into four categories — top paid iPhone apps, top free iPhone apps, top paid iPad apps and top free iPad apps — and there are definitely some familiar faces in this crowd. The top paid iPhone app of all time is Doodle Jump, and SoundHound tops the list of paid iPad apps. Facebook finds itself atop the free iPhone app list, of course, and Pandora is No. 1 on the list of free iPad apps. As TechCrunch points out, however, there are also a few surprises in the bunch. The Google Mobile App is the No.3 free iPhone app of all time — something Apple might not be terribly excited about. Also, crowd favorite Angry Birds is only No. 4 on the all-time list of top paid iPhone apps, behind the aforementioned Doodle Jump as well as Tap Tap Revenge 3 and Pocket God. Hit the break for the full lists.
