So you're complaining about a song directed at bullies, but then laud ones about a woman who feels she can't get by without some guy? Okay then.

As far as gaming apps goes, I'm addicted (currently) to Temple Run. I need suggestions for more games though! Good quality games.
The only reason I heard of Adele was because she was singing one night on Dancing with the Stars.

Interesting. You take Adele's songs so seriously that you think they are more than just songs about heartbreak, yet you think violence is ok if against bullies? Okay, then.

BTW, one of her biggest songs is also about revenge. Although not violence.

If you just turned on your radio for 2 seconds, I guarantee it would be playing either Pumped Up Kicks or Adele.

I don't understand how a camera app could take app of the year. There are some awesome apps out there like 2do, BizXpenseTracker, Evernote & DropBox that are absolute necessities. I mean, a camera app?

People like taking pictures. Sharing photos is one of the top activities in the social networking sites (e.g., Facebook).

It's worth pointing out that these are editorial selections. There is no reason to be surprised that the App Store editors selected Instagram this year, since they picked Hipstamatic last year.

The productivity apps like those you mentioned can be very helpful, but they aren't what's truly popular (or fun), at least in the eyes of the App Store editors. If you want to change the selection process, get a job at Apple.

Tiny Tower? Bleah. What were they thinking? Tiny Tower is almost identical to all those other task games, except it has crappier graphics.

A) Some of those apps you listed were not released this year.
B) Not everyone is in need of some of those apps, but almost everyone is taking pictures with their phone. As it's the most used camera these days.

Hipstamatic was last years App of the Year and that also is a camera app. I consider Hipstamatic a necessity because my phone and my camera are always with me wherever I go.

Tiny Tower?! Seriously?!



I just don't get it, the game entertained me for all of two days until I realized how flat and uninteresting it was. Eventually it just became waiting til i needed to restock, paying to restock, waiting til i had money and adding a new floor. Unlike other sim games there wasn't any depth to the resource management or building and you couldn't really do much beyond that same basic cycle. With randomly dropped store types you can even strategize well. It is an intriguing demo concept that could be developed into a fun Sim Tower-esque game but is FAR too limited to be the best game of the year. Tiny Wings would be better, its simple but FUN for example. There are other great games too, this one? Cute but limited.

But you won't know that until you play it and realize it for yourself after a month or so. So pointless...

Heard Pumped up Kicks a few times and did not like it at all but just my personal preference. Part of what annoys me about the song is Pandora seems convinced I will like it every time I turn it on.

I agree with a previous comment, a camera app is a kinda dull choice. Nothing at all against the app but there are so many more innovative options.

People keep saying Tiny Tower has bad graphics. Tiny Tower has brilliant graphics. Some really lovely pixel art there.

I got bored of it pretty fast too, but my wife has 120 floors, haha. Its best if you're competing with someone through gamecenter.

Pumped Up Kicks came out last year.

Just because it's not in iTunes doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

I downloaded Tiny Tower in April or May. Currently at 131 floors. I became aware it was pointless a few hours after having it, but it's the best time killer ever.

My tower.

Also a total rip-off of SimTower, which I'm fine with since EA is a douche-bag of a gaming company.

I wouldn't call it a total rip-off but I would be amazed if TinyTower would exist without SimTower coming before it. A 'total rip-off' is more along the lines of what Zynga did with, what was it called, Dream Heights? In any case, it is clear that inspiration here pre-dates TinyTower.
