Emerging free iOS apps: Angry Birds Space Free, Flow Free and Hay Day

This week sees two new champions on top of the free iOS app charts. Independent developer Big Duck Games hits No. 1 on the free iPhone app charts with puzzle game Flow Free, and Rovio takes the top spot on the iPad charts with its brand-new free version of Angry Birds Space HD. The iPhone version of the game, Angry Birds Space Free, takes the No. 4 spot on the iPhone free app chart.

It’s an interesting move for Rovio to release a free version of Angry Birds Space on iOS, as the paid version of the game is  is still quite popular. According to our AppData rank tracking service, the paid version of the game is currently holding the No. 2 spot on the paid iPhone app chart and the No. 18 spot on the top grossing iPhone app chart. Rovio didn’t initially release a free version of the game on iOS, but Android users had access to the paid and free versions on launch day.

Finally, Supercell’s new title Hay Day also did well this week, hitting No. 24 on the free iPhone app charts and No. 11 on the iPad charts. Our full review of the game can be found here.
