Editor’s note: Inside Network’s AppData has been updated to include Android charts. For your convenience, we will now post these alongside our weekly iOS charts as opposed to creating a separate Android-only post on Thursdays. Check back tomorrow for our top paid apps post and again on Wednesday for top grossing.

Football season made a major impact on the iOS top free apps charts this week, with six football themed apps ranking on the iPhone chart, another seven on iPad, but none on Android. At the top of the heap are NFL Enterprises’ NFL ’12 which took the No. 5 spot on iPhone and ESPN Fantasy Football 2012 which tool the No. 2 spot on iPad.

Another notable gainer on iOS this week is Pocket Gems’ latest game Tap Campus Life, which took the No. 9 spot on iPhone and the No. 5 spot on iPad. Tap Campus Life is a building sim much like Pocket Gems’ previous games, but with a sorority theme, deeper customization options and much improved animations.
