Fruit Ninja is the #2 paid iPhone app of all time


Congratulations are definitely in order for Halfbrick on achieving the #2 position in Apple's Top 25 All-Time Paid Apps list with their immensley popular Fruit Ninja game. As part of Apple's 25 billion apps downloaded promotion, the lists published by Apple showcase the most successful apps to ever hit the App Store for both paid and free categories, and for both the iPhone and iPad.

In the coveted Top 25 All-Time Paid Apps iPhone list, Rovio's Angry Birds takes the #1 spot, followed by Fruit Ninja which beat out other notoriously popular titles such as Doodle Jump, Cut the Rope, Plants vs Zombies, and Words with Friends. Fruit Ninja is listed also #23 in the Top Free iPhone list with Fruit Ninja Lite, #6 Top Paid iPad with Fruit Ninja HD, and #13 Top Free iPad with Fruit Ninja HD Lite.

Despite being released in April, 2010, Fruit Ninja has shown some extraordinary staying power by hovering most of the time since in the top ten paid App Store charts. It's certainly going to get an extra boost via Apple's promotion of these lists as well as the 25 billion apps mural on the Apple website where Fruit Ninja's icon appears in a commanding front row position.

Local developers, IronMonkey and Firemint, also made the iPhone Top 25 All-Time Paid Apps list with The Sims 3 reaching spot #21, and Flight Control with #22.
