Games are most popular apps for iPhone

Nine out of top 15 apps are games

Apple iPhone owners are more likely to purchase games to play on their handset, compared to other mobile phone users, says Distimo.

According to research by the applications analysts, nine of the 15 most purchased apps for Apple's smartphone were games. Distimo also revealed that none of the top 15 purchased apps for phone's running Google's Android OS were games.

The firm also revealed that when it came to free apps, the same rules applied, but apps for Google Android phones were on average more expensive than those for the iPhone.

However, Distimo said this didn't mean Android owners didn't like playing games on their phones.

"Classic games on Android Market are more popular than in the Apple App Store, with even three out of the 15 most popular games for Android being emulators. These types of emulators are not allowed in the Apple App Store," the company said.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
