Now there are more than 850,000 apps for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch available in more than 150 countries, and users have downloaded more than 50 billion apps.

Pages: This one came in as Apple's all-time most downloaded paid app for the iPad. For $9.99, Pages is a word-processing app that allows users to create, edit and view documents on-the-go.

Camera+: Among an army of popular games like Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja, Camera+ was the seventh most-downloaded paid app for the iPhone. With a $1.99 price tag, Camera+ is a filter for the iPhone that, as it says, "adds pro-camera crispness to almost any shot."
