Top 10 UK Paid Apps on iPhone

Icon Skins homes in on App Store supremacy

It’s not always easy to gauge the impact on an application being listed in iTunes’s New & Noteworthy section, since software publishers can be reticent at times to release precise, cumulative sales figures.

To even the most amateur of App Store sleuths, mind, the promo payoff for Giorgi Otiashvili’s iOS wallpaper catalogue this week has been nothing short of breathtaking.

The UK’s #1 Icon Skins - Home Screen Backgrounds has been embellishing iPhone devices for almost four months, prioritising quality over quantity in the scenery department and tailoring its flamboyant designs for Retina displays.

Writing of customisation, the latest instalment in Disney’s JellyCar franchise scooted onto the UK paid apps chart today, its colour coded bumpers and chrome plated hubcaps lining up on the front row.

You’d think that with JellyCar 3’s ability to rewind time, its maker would - Marty McFly and Doc Brown stylee - go back to the future and eliminate Icon Skins from the iPhone grid without a second thought.

Perhaps, Mickey Mouse’s management decided that ever-so-slightly cynical tactic would be at odds with the company’s traditionally wholesome image, but it could be worth keeping a close eye on Icon Skins’s position nonetheless...

Elsewhere on the UK rundown, Chillingo has two reasons to pop the champagne corks, beginning with wily ‘old’ veteran Cut the Rope’s return to the gaming top table.

Om Nom’s appetite for candy increased in direct correlation to punters’ demand over the Valentine’s period, as a fresh gameplay mechanic was introduced for both parties to feast on.

Sky Combat, meanwhile, is the latest cadet successfully groomed under Chilingo’s auspices, this high flying vertical shooter climbing the App Store’s chart AND Qi’s listings faster than you can say ‘woof’.

Can Sky Combat continue to dodge missiles thrown from the likes of Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja and maintain its upwards trajectory, or will it come a cropper in the dying moments?

Tune in next Friday to find out.
