Just being a little over two months old, 2010 was a very short year for the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace. Having recently passed the 5,000 app mark the Marketplace offers a wide range of applications for your Windows Phone. As 2010 comes to a close, we thought we'd take a peak to see what apps were tops in the Marketplace.
The Windows Phone 7 Marketplace offers two top ten lists; Top Paid and Top Free apps. The top ten free apps are:
- Xbox Live Extras
- Adobe Reader
- The Weather Channel
- Tetris 7
- Kill the Duck
To see the Top Ten Paid Apps list, follow the break.
The Top Ten Paid Apps at the Marketplace are:
- Fruit Ninja
- Need for Speed Undercover
- Crackdown 2: Project Sunburst
- The Oregon Trail HD
- Pocket God
- Assassin's Creed
- Puzzle Quest 2
- Guitar Hero 5
- Star Wars Cantina
- Bejeweled LIVE
It's interesting that the paid app's list is populated completely with games. All XBox Live games to boot. The first non-gaming app is Voice Recorder that comes in at #13. In contrast, only four of the top ten free apps are games.
Does this mean there's enough productivity apps already on the Windows Phones and not enough gaming apps? Or that the Windows Phone crowd looks at their phones more for entertainment than business?
So, what apps are missing? Is there an application deserving top ten status but just hasn't been downloaded enough to make it on the list?
