Navigation applications come top

Apple lists 2009’s best selling iPhone apps

Apple has published two ‘Top Sellers’ charts of games and apps for 2009, which reveals the titles that generated the most cash on its iPhone App Store this year.

Navigation applications are to the fore, with ALK’s CoPilot, TomTom, Navigon’s Mobile Navigator and Sygic’s Mobile Maps Europe all present and correct.

Other apps to have coined it in include chef Jamie Oliver’s 20 Minute Meals app, Smule’s I Am T-Pain, Arsenal FC’s official app, and Sling Media’s SlingPlayer Mobile.

In the separate games list, seven of the top 30 are from EA Mobile, representing a hugely successful year for the publisher, which has brought a succession of its big console brands to iPhone.

Gameloft has three games in the top 30, while Australian independent studio Firemint has entries from both its games: Real Racing and Flight Control.
