    (Also for the top 10 lists for other categories.)

    I thought SMB would be higher in the list, and that Trism would be in there.

    Makes me wonder how the list would look like if similar lists would be made with just the downloads from the TouchArcade forum members. :)

    Well, the majority of these apps were the first ones available for the iPhone giving them a clear advantage over newer apps.

    funny how Texas Hold em, an app developed by Apple is always # 1, as it was always # one in paid top 25 or at least in the top 10

    i wonder if that was placement, or if the game really did sell enough to maintain its top 10 position, which would of brought in more sales

    but texas hold em is a popular game in general

    im not complaining, i purchased it and enjoyed it,

    I never fell for the $5 Texas hold 'em app. I found thtouch, best hold 'em game on the touch for the the price ($1) with a great control scheme. I do, however, own about 7 or 8 of the top 10 paid apps.
