It just wouldn't be late-December without a horde of "Top (fill in the blank) of the Year" lists. In that tradition, mobile analytics group Mobilewalla has posted their top-rated apps of 2011 list. However, where most list makers simply compile the most popular or their favorites, Mobilewalla took a different approach. Using an algorithm consisting of ratings, position within category, popularity, social media, etc., lovingly referred to as the "Mobilewalla Score," they compiled a list based on a score of 100. From greatest to least, here are the results (click links to download):
- TuneIn Radio (Free): 96.7
- Penguin (Free): 96.0
- Dictionary.com – Dictionary and Thesaurus (Free): 95.7
- gMaps (Free): 95.7
- PhotoFunia (Free): 95.7
- Phone 8 (Paid - $.99): 92.2
- Weather Live (Paid - $1.49): 91.7
- Fuse (Paid - $1.29): 89
- iFun (Paid - $.99): 89
- SuperTube (Paid - $1.29): 88.4
