Did you download Angry Birds, Facebook, or Plants vs. Zombies on your iPhone or iPad this year? If so, you're in good company. They were among Apple's 2010 Rewind, a list of the top paid and free apps downloaded from the App Store this year.
Apple also gave out its own awards, naming Hipstamatic the iPhone app of the year and Plants vs. Zombies the iPhone game of the year. Hipstamatic adds different tones and shades to your iPhone snapshots, giving them a moody or old-timey feel, while Plants vs. Zombies is a pretty self-explanatory (and apparently addictive) game. News organization app Flipboard, meanwhile, was designated the the iPad app of the year, while the trippy, cosmic Osmos for iPad was Apple's favorite iPad game.
Among the top downloaded paid iPhone apps, Angry Birds, Doodle Jump, and Skee-Ball nabbed the top three spots. All of the top paid iPhone apps were games or entertainment focused, actually. Also in the top 10 were Bejeweled 2 + Blitz, Fruit Ninja, Cut the Rope, All-in-1 Gamebox, The Moron Test, Plants vs. Zombies, and Pocket God.
The top-grossing iPhone app, however, was's At Bat 2010, which costs $14.99 during the season. Game makers also raked in the dough - Angry Birds, Call of Duty: Zombies, and Bejeweled 2 + Blitz were also in the top grossing list.

Angry Birds also made an appearance in the top free iPhone apps list; its no-cost "Lite" version landed in number two behind Facebook. Rounding out the top five were Words with Friends Free, Skype, and Tap Tap Revenge 3. A few productivity apps slipped into the free list with The Weather Channel and Bing apps grabbing the number six and eight spots. Also in the top 10 were Paper Toss, Rock Band Free, and Talking Tom Cat.
It appears that iPad users are bit more serious. The top three iPad apps were productivity-related: Apple's "Pages" word-processing program, GoodReader for the iPad, and Apple's "Numbers" spreadsheet app. Angry Birds HD slipped in there at number four, followed by Apple's "Keynote," its PowerPoint equivalent. Not surprisingly, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote were also the top-grossing iPad apps.
Among the top free iPad apps were iBooks, Pandora Radio, Netflix, Google Mobile App, and Solitaire. Amazon's Kindle app also landed at number eight.
Apple also looked at some of the top trends in app downloads this year, and saw a rise in the number of augmented reality apps, as well as "shoot, shape, share" photo apps (like Hipstamatic), social-networking options (dubbed "On the Grid"), retro revival games, and options for foodies.
A complete list of top trends for iPhone and iPad are available via iTunes.
