clip_image002[4]The news is that Apple has hit its 1 Billionth application download from the App Store which currently features over 25,000 apps. To celebrate the milestone, Apple had announced Prizes worth US$ 13,746 for the one billionth download including MacBook Pro and iPod Touch 32GB. Complete details are here.

So, I wonder, what are the types of applications that are popular amongst the community? I tried finding out the trends on the App store itself…
