“Hall of Fame” apps now featured in the Apple App Store

Apple has taken the time to create the “App Store Essentials Hall of Fame” page. It gives a good run down of the more popular apps – both free and paid. The App Store now has a whopping total of over 300,000 apps but there currently is only 47 apps that have made it to the Hall of Fame list… which Apple says these 47 apps are the best of the best. Can’t argue when Angry Birds is at the tops spot. SkyFire for iPhone should be there soon too. There’s also Evernote, Facebook, Guitar Hero, Nike+ GPS and for some reason 20 minute meals by Jamie Oliver.

    I doubt SkyFire will make it there. Yeah, it’s had high demand in the last few days, but I doubt you’re going to see the staying power and overall sheer sales numbers of apps like Flight Control and Angry Birds.

    Although, who knows – there’s a few apps in there that I’ve never heard of, so I guess anything is possible. It sure seems like an exclusive “club” though compared to the overall number of AppStore apps.

    Angry Birds: keeps you from beating your spouse.

    Skyfire isn’t even on the appstore anymore, the company pulled it when their servers pretty much blew up.

    And awesome, more ways to show the games everyone already knows about but not the good stuff no one knows about.

    Skyfire wont get there. It goes against apples stance against flash.
