I love anything and everything “techy.” I have an Android phone – maybe you have an iPhone. Both have their strengths and their weaknesses. Each draws a different crowd with its own unique personalities and quirks. Neither is right or wrong. They just are what they are. So this post has nothing to do with whether one is better than the other. It’s simply a list of top-ten free and paid apps . . . based on number of downloads . . . as of February 2010. And believe me when I say that this changes from week to week. So in another month or two there will be a different list.
