Apple has unveiled their top-selling apps of the year, and it seems that depending on what device you have you tend to like certain programs. For iPhone users, it’s all about entertainment-based apps revolving around games, but iPad users tend to like apps the help them with productivity such as Apple’s Pages software and its Numbers and Keynote programs. It speaks to the uses for each device. While people are treating the iPad like a mobile computer, the iPhone smaller size makes it a perfect gaming companion.

One thing: Angry Birds seems to be near or at the top on both devices, but other than that it’s hard to find any crossover. Check out the lists below.
