top paid iPad apps

With just nearly three years since its birth, the iPad has definitely surpassed everyone’s expectations. With more than 10 billion downloads and still counting, the iPad is definitely beyond a fading fad. Apple even celebrated the monumental 10 billionth download by giving away an iTunes gift card worth $10,000. The lucky winner was Gail Davis from Orpington, Kent, of the U.K. and the downloaded app was the Paper Glider.

Even the announcement of the winner was dramatic. Mrs. Davis actually hang up on Eddy Cue’s (VP of iTunes) call because she and her husband don’t have the capacity to download such as game through their iPods. She thought they were telemarketers. It was one of her daughter’s who downloaded the app under her account. The rest is history.

But still on the historical milestones of the iPad, 7 billion downloads were registered last year (2011) with the 10 billionth recorded earlier this year (2012).
