AppData logo

AppData logoAfter a week-long hiatus, our weekly top apps charts posts based off data from our traffic tracking service AppData return. Sega’s Sonic Dash, which is developed by Hardlight Studios, recently lost its premium price tag of $1.99 to free, resulting in the endless runner game running up the iOS charts to the No. 1 spot on the top free iPhone apps chart and No. 1 on the top free iPad apps chart. Skee-Ball 2, which is currently free thanks to app discovery service AppGratis, vaulted up the top free iOS charts, rolling to the No. 3 spot for iPhone and No. 11 spot for iPad. Developer NimbleBit’s hybrid Snake and Gauntlet game Nimble Quest is featured in the Apple App Store as an Editor’s Choice, resulting in the game debuting in the top 15 on the iOS apps charts, landing at the No. 11 position for iPhone and No. 13 position for iPad. Read our review for the game here.

Developer Game Circus’ pachinko-like game Paplinko has skyrocketed up the top free Android apps chart since March 21, moving from the No. 337 spot to the No. 18 spot as of today.
